How to Attach Quivers to a Bow


For an archer, the quiver is an essential piece of equipment. The type of quiver used is dependent on the type of bow and how the archer plans to use it. Quivers typically carry between four and eight arrows and are available in many different sizes and colors. Most hunters using crossbows or compound bows will choose quivers that attach directly to the bow. Bow-mounted quivers offer many advantages as they eliminate the need to carry an extra piece of equipment to transport arrows.

Things You'll Need

  • Allen wrench
  • Screws
  • Lay out the quiver and included hardware and locate the screws. Determine the appropriate Allen wrench that fits the included screws.

  • Line up the holes on the backside of the bow next to the sight and use the Allen wrench to tighten screws. Start by getting the screws hand tight and then tighten securely to prevent the screws from vibrating loose during shooting.

  • If your quiver is a two-piece repeat the process for the second piece. Two-piece quivers can offer a lightweight option for the backcountry bowhunter.

  • Align the quiver by adjusting the screws to position the arrows in relationship to the quiver. This will center your quiver and arrows on the bow.

Tips & Warnings

  • Review several different models that fit your bow before making a buying decision.
  • Consult your local archery pro shop for more advice.
  • Continue to check the screws and retighten as necessary.
  • Be aware of quivers with small parts as these can come loose or break in the field.
