Kwikee Kwiver Co.
Kwikee Kwiver® is one of the most popular bow quivers in the world. No other quiver has been so highly awarded. Kwikee Kwiver has recently been honored as an inductee into Field and Stream’s® "Gear Hall of Fame." Each year Kwikee Kwiver is honored with the "Reader’s Choice Award" by Bowhunting World and Inside Archery’s "Best Buy Award."
The Kwikee Kwiver Company got its start in 1956 when Bob Stinson invented the Deluxe Kwiver for his recurve bow. The quiver fit on the limbs of his bow and became an instant hit. The original prototypes were made of a cork-like material and plywood. The design evolved to metal plates and now is injection-molded plastic. The original cork of the Deluxe Kwivers were dyed green and placed on the front lawn to dry. This produced a problem in the early stages of the quiver because the grasshoppers loved to eat the cork!
Kwikee Kwiver was incorporated in 1957 and has been growing ever since. Fred Bear Archery® in Graying, Michigan, was one of Kwikee Kwiver’s first customers, purchasing string silencers and Deluxe Kwivers. The first lightweight, quick-detachable quiver for compound bows was invented in 1976 by Bob along with his business partner Chet Grant. In April of 2008, Chet Grant purchased Kwikee Kwiver Co. When Chet was ready to pass the torch in 2013, Altus Brands® acquired Kwikee.
