Description Videos

The Kwik Release System is a unique, patent pending 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".

Awesome piece of gear July 21, 2014
Reviewer: Timothy Tress from Jupiter, FL United States  
This small (and expensive) piece of gear is awesome.  These quick release plates fit tighter that Dick's hat band. I will probably eventually install them on all my tripods. A breeze when it comes to switching out components such as sliders, jibs, camera heads, etc. So and soooo secure. Can't say enough good about them. But they ain't cheap.

Pricey but effective June 25, 2014
Reviewer: Jordan Popowich from Winnipeg, MB Canada  
I was using the Manfrotto 577 quick release with my pocket Dolly and it would always wobble or come loose. The Kessler Kwik release eliminates that problem. Very stable thus far (I've had for almost a month). It's quite expensive for a quick release, that's really my only issue...

so nice, should have bought one sooner June 24, 2014
Reviewer: Ray B from Millville , NJ United States  
It just works, one hand operation and when its locked you can't move the plate its locked down solid.

** You can use long plates for extra for and aft movement to balance your camera on the head, the reason I bought this one over the Zacuto QR clamp for my Recoil set up

The lever can be a tiny bit awkward to reach sometimes and might be better on the side vs. the back for some setups but thats just a maybe and it might just be that thats what I am used to for all my other ARCA type clamps

Kessler Kwik Releases May 16, 2014
Reviewer: Johnny Waller from Commerce Twp, MI United States  
Game changer. Whenever I wanted to add a slider to my tripod, I had to unscrew the head from my legs.  Spin around the tripod with the slider for 20 seconds and re-tighten everything while creating wear on the connectors.  Now with the quick releases, I can switch within seconds.  If I want to put my slider on, 15 seconds.  If I want to take off the slider and put on a traveler jib, only a couple minutes from taking out of the bag. I've saved so much time with this product, and added life to my back. It saves time and the need for additional help. I bought 5 of these and will buy 2 more to have full access to my gear.  I shot this video in 3 hours carrying a monopod, Kessler PB slider, traveler jib, and tripod by myself without any issues of swapping back and forth. I've opened up the possibilities of being more creative with a jib, and taking more chances to get more specific shots that would require a complete change of what I was using.  Way to go Kessler!!!
