Covered kwikee kwivers with a leather hood? What is this world coming to? Not the macho kwikee kwivers I remember ;-)...Van

do you just cut the leather out and glue it to the hood??

Not the way I do it. I cut the leather to shape, sew or lace it and then it slips over the hood.

Here's one I made using a pattern a friend sent to me. I used the "baseball" stitch and dyed the leather...which came out pretty nice.

Neat quivers. I still prefer the Kwikee bracket. Pretty small and light. And obviously hard to improve on, since everything since has been bigger and no better.

I got a few PM's about my leather covered Kwikee Kwiver. If this is what you are referring to I don't make them to sell, but I can send you a copy of the pattern with instructions if you e-mail me at bminn@pa.net. I can just reply to your e-mail and add the attachment of the pattern. I've sent over 300 copies to guys on the LW.

Some great looking leather work there guys. A very timely thread for me as I'm about to try this myself. Keep those pictures coming!

How do you keep them from getting loose and making noise.

Send the quiver to Selway and they'll do it for you. I think it's around $25.00

Steve, I didn't know that. Good tip!

Willie, all the newer Kwikees have a knob you screw in to secure them in the bracket and keep them quiet. I retrofitted my old ones with a thumbscrew to do the same thing. Works great. You can see the knobs in Bruce's pictures
