Reviews

Great... Convenient and SolidReview by Dan Reardon
Overall
The whole Kwik Release system is great. They make quick work of mounting and unmounting cameras, sliders and other gear and they are rock solid.
Worth the $$ Review by Chris Doyle
Overall
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 ClampReview by Lawrence Dunn
Overall
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.Review by 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.
Jeremiah Scott from TigardReview by Amazing Quick Release System! I own 5!
Overall
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 ReleaseReview by Michael J Toffan from Mason
Overall
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.
