Hi All,

The Tuners Group is very proud to announce the availability of a brand new quick release from Works Bell, the Rapfix QRS ...

Following on from the massive success of the world reknowned Rapfix II, the brand new Rapfix QRS was announced today by Works Bell in Tokyo.

Like all Works Bell's other world class high quality quick releases, the Rapfix QRS is manufactured in Japan with true Japanese machining precision.

The Rapfix QRS consists of two parts as shown above:

- the steering plate which you attach to your steering wheel

- the Rapfix QRS body which is attached to your steering boss kit.

Incredibly compact - Just 25 mm thick

For some other companies, it is near impossible to achieve the goal of designing a quick release that features easy operation with no shakiness or play.

However, the Works Bell Rapfix QRS achieves these goals by utilizing the lever, cover and ball lock system.

In addition, it allows the driver to maintain a comfortable seating position due to it’s very compact low profile design with a thickness of just approx 25mm (1 inch) !

Two foldable levers are designed to make the turning of the cover simple. It is also a safety device because the cover cannot be turned without moving the lever.

Steering Wheel & Hub / Boss Kit Compatibility

There is no welding required to fit a Works Bell Rapfix QRS Quick Release to your car - it is strictly a bolt on product with no welding required.

At the steering wheel end, the Rapfix QRS ships pre-machined with bolt holes in both standard 6 bolt Momo bolt pattern steering (PCD 70mm), and 6 bolt Nardi bolt pattern (PCD 74mm), so it is compatible with a very wide range of steering wheels from a number of manufacturers including Works Bell, Momo, Nardi, Personal, OMP etc.

The part of the Rapfix QRS that attaches to the steering boss / hub has a 6 bolt (PCD 70mm) bolt pattern, the same bolt pattern as used on Momo steering bosses / hubs.

We can supply a steering boss kit / hub to suit for almost any vehicle - please see the steering hubs / boss kits section of our website and contact us if a boss for your car is not listed.

Alternatively, if you already have a 6 bolt Nardi bolt pattern steering boss / hub (PCD 74mm), then the part of the Rapfix QRS that attaches to the steering boss / hub can be attached to many compatible 6 bolt Nardi bolt pattern steering bosses / hubs, by using the Works Bell Conversion Spacer.

This might sound like a bit of a silly question - but with the legality issues of running a non-airbag steering wheel on a car that came with one from the factory - are there any options for using a factory / airbag equipped wheel with a quick-release system?

Virtually every car uses a different method for mounting the factory airbag steering wheel, so there is no commercially available system that I know of to use a factory airbag steering wheel with a quick release.

Do these work with the horn connected? or Do you need to disconnect the horn wire before removing?

Yes the horn still works.

As it says on our website at ...

Your horn still works

The electrode installed in the plate and Rapfix QRS body, when aligned together in the “attached” position allows full operation of the horn button.

The electrical connections for the horn in the Rapfix QRS automatically engage when the steering wheel is attached.

The part on the right in the photo above is bolted to your steering wheel, and the red wire is connected to your horn button on your steering wheel. If you have a look at the part on the left of the photo above, at the lower left centre you can see a copper electrical contact. That contact automatically engages with the part attached to the steering wheel, so the horn still works.
