    Kwik Release Receiver is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing else like it For moving quickly between different camera platforms, there's no better option. I have one on my shoulder rig, tripod, slider etc. Very well built, solid locking mechanism and the two-stage unlock is very nice for peace of mind. Not compatible with some other brands' arca-swiss plates and a bit heavy, but an indispensable piece of kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built to (out)last (you and your gear:)) This is one of the best pieces I've ever gotten for my gear. It took me sometime to get them (yes, more than one) as it isn't an obvious piece of equipment you think of getting as first comes the camera, lenses, mic, lights and the rest. But this will help protect your gear in the long run and work faster and calmer (no need to panic if your tripod head is properly secured to your camera). This thing firmly attaches to any tripod mount usually better than a camera would directly. It is compact and it is superbly built. Works flawlessly. You can mount sliders and cameras on it. The click and lever mechanism work great. Compatible with other Arca Swiss plates is another plus. Knowing that I can put them on any device I rent or own or will own makes it really worth while. No more changing plates for my different mounts... now it's one plate to rule them all!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with Zacuto QR plate as well as Kessler I bought the Kwik Release receiver to use with a Zacuto QR plate after seeing the two click together in a Zacuto video. The Kessler receiver is less money than the Zacuto, and, while I've never used a Zacuto receiver to compare it, it's hard to imagine anything built more solidly than this Kessler Kwik release. Perhaps the Zacuto could be lighter weight and as strong, which would make it a better choice perhaps for a shoulder or rig mount. I hope to buy several more Kessler Kwik release receivers to use either with Kessler plates (which have the added benefit of multiple threaded cheese holes) or with Zacuto plates. The main thing is to standardize on one brand of mount (or two brands that work together, as in this case) so that one can move the camera quickly from one camera support device to another without fiddling with screws. See my photo below that shows the Zacuto plate in the Kessler Kwik release receiver.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down the best of its kind! I have three of these for various use across my mounts and rigs. You can't beat the feeling and sound of the click that tells you that you are locked and loaded. The quality of engineering and craftsmanship is top notch. And their pricing is very reasonable. I would highly, highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic use saves time This thing works like it should. It ain't cheap but I have two with a long plate for C300 Mark ll and a short plate for the C100. I no longer have to fuss with manfrotto plates which save a lot of time. Sometimes I don't get the most experienced crew so having this simplicity while there a moving ten's of thousands of dollars from tripod to slider a Simple two minute lesson put's them at ease. Once the camera is in it is not going anywhere even before you clamp it in which gives me piece of mind.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Quick Release System I love the Kessler Kwik Release system. I think it's the best in the market period. It's rock solid, has a level and the design is perfect. I hate quick releases that have the small side knobs. The larger latch system that Kessler uses works great and manfrotto camera plates are compatible with it as well. I have several of theses and buy more every time I'm purchasing gear. I try to have a Kessler Kwik release live on pretty much all my rigging gear so switching back and forth is easy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helps move quickly. This is a great way to be able to quickly move your camera from tripod to slider to monopod. Very solid and secure. However, it is pretty expensive for what it is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for multiple tripods/monopods or sliders and heads For my uses, this is a lifesaver. My threading for my tripod when switching between sliders and heads alone are stripping. This saves my threading and so much time! Here is my rundown of equipment that I use my Kessler Kwik system: Induro Carbon Fiber tripod Sirui Carbon Fiber monopod Manfrotto 502HD w/Slider Plate Edelkrone SliderONE w/Slider Plate Sometimes I need the monopod, so I remove the head from my tripod and place it in my monopod, safely and extremely securely. Need to have a slider? Remove the head on the tripod, plop in the slider, the plop in the head on top of the slider, good to go in 20 seconds or less! No joke! (If you are nice and organized) Build quality is amazing, althouh the paint is chipping already, but none of the parts are wearing. When the lock is flipped open, it may wiggle up and down, but that's when it's open and useless. When doing it's job, it is rock solid when locked in and will not wiggle! Your tripod column will wiggle before it will. Speaking of which, if you know how o use the mounting points on your tripod/monopod or heads, then the many holes will do nicely! I really only use two for the tripod legs and monopod. Yes it's expensive and we have to pay shipping, but this is the most useful hunk ofsolid aluminium you will ever buy and will save you so much time and worn stripped threads on your tripods!
