I wasn't looking for this tool. I just happened to come across it when I was looking for something else.

The only reason I stopped to consider this tool was because just a few days before I found this tool I suffered a flat while out on a ride. And of course it was a wheel and tire combination that has always been a PITA.

I did some searching on YouTube and found a few videos showing how to use the tool. The price was cheap so what the heck?

Got the tool and it works! However, on the aforementioned rim and tire combination that always gives me fits I had to use the tool in a different way.

In other words you would normally hook the tool on the rim and then use the other side to *lift* the tire onto the rim. In my case I had to use the hook first to lift (hold) the tire and then place the other side into the rim. So in a sense I had to do it backwards - but it worked. :-)

On my other rims and tires I didn't have to do this.

Anyway, I love this tool! I even keep it in my pack which is a God send when we have to fix a flat on a DH run!

Good stuff!!

Kool-Stop Tire Bead Jack

Works as advertised, but slips off of tire due to the gripping slot being very smooth. This part needs some 'rippling' or the grip angle needs to be slightly enhanced.Read complete review

I need to use two hands to hold it onto a tire.

    Comments about Kool-Stop Tire Bead Jack With Handle:

    I found out about this tool from my LBS after telling them about my latest frustrating experience mounting some very hard to mount tires...found them for sale at JensonUSA under tire tools. Bought two, one for home & one for the road...saves time, hand and arm strain...and a few choice words.

        This thing is great for stubborn tires. I used it to install tubeless cx tires (multiple times). There was more than one time I thought I broke it, but it stood up to those tires like a champ and is ready for more.

          This is the only tool that will provide enough leverage to get the last bit of wire bead on the Marathon plus tire over the rim on my 20-inch Velocity Cliffhanger rim without tearing the rubber off of the bead. It could be a little wider to accommodate the 47-406 (1.75", 20-inch) tire.

            This tool works great. I can't believe how I struggled for years with difficult tire/rim combinations.
            Now I can easily put those difficult tires back on the rim.
            I'm thinking about buying another one to leave in my pack or car.

                Bought two, one to hold one end of the bead & the other to lift the bead over the rim. Caution, use away from rim decals as they may get damaged.

                  Comments about Kool-Stop Tire Bead Jack With Handle:

                  I love Velocity rims, and have been running Conti clinchers with tubes on them, but find that the tubeless ready rims are slightly oversized, making seating tube type tires difficult at best, even with heavy duty levers. This tool is just the ticket for doing that one thing. Though of necessity too long to fit a seat bag, it will slip in my jersey pocket on every ride from now on. Great product.

                          Not necessarily. While this tool works on both road and mountain tires, it seems as though most use this tire for stubborn road tires. I hope this helps!
