How The R&R Beadbreaker & Tyre refitting Tool Works (Basics)
To use as a beadbreaker sit foot on tyre next to rim edge adjust nose plate to sit on opposite rim edge,sit anchor against edge of Centre hole,then position pivot block so as threaded rod is closest to parallel with foot, then just using a 19mm or 3/4 spaner wind down the Barrel nut until the tool bottoms out on the rim edge then
as tyre is held down apply lubricant to exposed area continue around rim.
with an average of 1 position on front & then 2 to 3 position on the rear.
The Real Reason the tool was invented was to refit the tyre to the rim,- The guide on the foot will direct the bead into the well as the Retaining bolt opposite,
applies bead tension. as the barrel nut is tightned.
Replicating: Standing on the tyre trying to kick the bead in the well while levering / hammering, to tension on the bead.
With the need to stand on the tyre removed, means that if up at a working height on a Tailgate / Camp table / Ute Tray (kitchen table in van AC on) having your back straight will give you far greater control the part of edging the bead over the rim with the hooked end of the tyre lever making the job very easy.
When the tyre has moved forward from the retaining bolt, the barrel nut is losened to release the anchor so the tool can be slid back and the bead will slide down the ramp, then by just lifting the tool the bead will slide off.
Tyre Spreading Attachment
Tyre Spreading Attachment. -Transformed into a excellent addition this sturdy tyre spreader is fully adjustable & can spread from 50mm to 500mm giving a far greater tyre size coverage than even the beadbreaker it's self.
Giving you a real advantage when preparing any area within the tyre to take a patch having the area tensioned will make the buffing process far quicker. also giving
far more access to get the job done.
When packed away will only increase the width of the tool by 12mm and the
length by 25mm
