QikVin pivots to face masks for frontline medical workers

Why are these nurses all smiling?

MRH Products, the maker of the QikVin, has shelved their operations in order to help mass produce face shields for front line workers.

Markus Schneider the CEO of MRH Products is taking the lead to organize Wisconsin companies to manufacture and assemble the face shields.

Today we received a request from a forward surgical unit in the US military for face shields overseas! First shields went to Mt. Sinai in Illinois too, because the need is great! They are out the door today!

Keep up with the latest developments on the Milwaukee Makerspace Blog –


If you would like to support our front line workers, please consider supporting our Go Fund Me campaign! Aiming for $10k

How It Works

  • Pour your wine into the QikVin and put the lid back on top.

Push Air Out

Step 2

  • Push the piston up from the bottom.
  • Doing so will displace all the air through the top of the QikVin.
  • A one-way valve keeps the air from coming back into the bottle.
  • Wine will remain fresh until served.

Preserve or Pour Wine

Step 3

  • Pour wine as you normally would.
  • The piston will move through the bottle as you pour the wine.
  • No oxygen will touch your wine.
