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".

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

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"...

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
