Description Videos

The Kwik Release System is a unique, patented mounting system featuring solid billet aluminum and stainless steel construction. With a one hand drop-in instant latching and push button drop-gate release, this mounting system is strong, secure, fast and easy to use.

Once the mounting plate is snapped into the receiver, the plate can be adjusted but it cannot slide out of the receiver thanks to the secure safety stops. We also built in an ultra-strong cam lock that, once tightened, will secure the plate with absolutely no slip. We have designed the Kwik Release System to be as modular as possible with mounting plates available for cameras, sliders, motion control heads and more.

We stand behind our products 100%. Our Kessler Lifetime Warranty backs the Kwik Release system.

*Note: Please be sure to choose a correct camera plate with your receiver. If none is desired - choose "None".

*Sunwayfoto & Fotasy camera plates may not be compatible with Kessler Kwik Release Receiver.

Best product Ever February 24, 2015
Reviewer: Chris Clifton from Houston, TX United States  
I had read about this quick release posted by a user in a forum when I was looking for a solution for my FS7 and EX3. I can't believe I have gone this long without such a great solution for the Vinten tripod head. Fantastic!

Strong build quality, seems to be VERY durable. Simple to use and comes with many mounting options. I have 2 and plan on adding 2 more to my collection. QUICK RELEASE ALL THE THINGS.

QR Clamp December 24, 2014
Reviewer: Lawrence Dunn from Southampton, Hampshire United Kingdom  
I have Really Right Stuff (RRS) gear for my photography equipment, so this is what I compare the Kessler QR clamp to.

Firstly, the Kessler QR clamp works fine with the RRS plates. It feels a quality product, in the same way the RRS system does.

I like the way the plates snap down positively into the Kessler QR clamp & are secure even in an unclamped clamp.

The only area where I'd say the RRS QR clamp was better is the feel of their QR lever, its just shaped better, that & the size of the RRS clamps being smaller, which may or may not be an advantage, depending upon what you are mounting on it.

Bottom line is that the Kessler QR clamp does feel like a top quality & secure product & I will enjoy using it.

I like 'em. October 28, 2014
Reviewer: Raul  
These are great, and I'm about to buy my fourth.  I do however miss how wide my Manfrotto 504PLONG plates were in comparison to Kessler's plates.  But maybe I'll get over it soon.

Amazing Quick Release System! I own 5! October 23, 2014
Reviewer: Jeremiah Scott from Tigard, OR United States  
I bought one of these to try them out and I absolutely loved it so I turned around and bought 4 more.  Completely solid.  I've got them on my two tripod heads, Hercules head, Cineslider and shoulder mount.  My workflow has sped up dramatically.  Everything from throwing up my slider or jib takes seconds.  Prior to that I would have to line up the holes and proceed to screw in the bolts, etc.  It got annoying and sometimes was a deciding factor on if I used a certain piece of gear or not due to time.  Love these and would buy them again and again.
