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".

Great Quick Release System April 15, 2014
Reviewer: Ryan Alldaffer from Dallas, TX  
Absolutely love the Kessler Kwik Release & Plates.  I own a small creative media business and I've tried a few different kinds from the arca-swiss style to the more popular quick release systems and I believe Kessler's Kwik Release is far superior.

Works very well with multiple plates, which gives you options for filming quickly, but efficiently.  Great design with great stability.  Great job Kessler Crane!

Excellent! April 3, 2014
Reviewer: Tyler from Los Angeles, CA United States  
Well made, very secure, low profile.  Nice range of slide forward and back.  Compatible with Zacuto and Really Right Stuff dovetail plates.  Multiple mounting options.  This will now be the only quick release system I'll use.  Excellent!

Does not work with 12' Crane January 7, 2014
Reviewer: Nathan Bartlett from Evanston, IL United States  
I bought this with the Utility plate to make building my crane faster, but it only works with the 8' crane. When used with the 12' (and presumably 18') crane, the balance is thrown off and the crane does not operate properly. However I'm still pleased with it as I use it for sliders and cameras, and it is well made and very sturdy with the locking hasp.

Kessler Quick Release December 27, 2013
Reviewer: John Wade from Long Beach, CA United States  
It's simple. Get the quick release, a couple plates for different cameras, use it in different situations - traveler jib, slider, DSLR, tripod mounted camcorder- put it on a ball head, whatever-they lock down anything solid, are a huge time/hassle saver - you'll end up with a bag full of them over time. They simplify and simply work.
