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.

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.

The Best Heavy Duty Quick Release September 2, 2014
Reviewer: Michael J Toffan from Mason, OH United States  
This is my fourth Kessler Kwik Release.  I use them on my K-Pod, Manfrotto Tripod Ball mount, Stealth Slider mounting plate and with a forthcoming carbon fiber tripod ball mount.

With these quick releases and corresponding mounting plates, I can customize my setup for each job. Setup and equipment changes are quick and snappy.

Examples: With corresponding mounting plates attached, I can quickly mount, either a video fluid head, ball head or my stealth slider onto any of my tripods.

With the slider mounted on tripod or in stand alone, I can quickly mount fluid Head or ball head to my slider.  

These quick release mounts and plates provide quick, strong, stable assemblies of components.

Excellent quality and dependable support.  No question I will be adding Kwik Releases for each new piece of kit.

Kwik Release System Review August 18, 2014
Reviewer: Tim Mirande from Strongsville, OH United States  
I got my first Kessler Kwik release system free on a one-day only special when purchasing a pocket dolly. I was planning on
buying a PB Pocket Dolly for some time, so the special provided the impetus to finally place the order.

After working with the Kwik release system a bit, I 'Kwkly' came to the conclusion that it was heavy-duty, easy to use and made everything universally adaptable. A true time saver.

Um, that is, if you have enough of them. Enter 2 more receiver purchases. Add tripods, monopod, low-profile head...I'm now budgeting for more receivers. Yes, it's an investment to get a bunch of them. However, like all good investments, they pay off in the end.

The only thing I'll say in closing is this. I got my first Kwik Release System for free with my PB Pocket Dolly. I quickly bought more and still want more. Now let's see, what other profession waves a bag of their product in front of you and slyly states, "First one's free"...
