Ken-Tool announces utility tire cage

Provides installer protection when inflating small tires

AKRON, Ohio (March 10, 2015) – Ken-Tool has added its latest, and smallest, tire cage to its industry-leading line of tire inflation restraining devices, with the introduction of the 36000-T107 Utility Tire Inflation Cage.

The Utility Tire Cage is designed for tires for turf care equipment, golf carts, all-terrain vehicles and personal mobility scooters, which are too small to be safely placed in a large passenger or truck tire cage.  It is designed solely for non-highway use tires, carrying the letters NHS (Non-Highway Service) on the tire’s sidewall.  It is NOT to be used on highway tires, nor NHS industrial tires or multi-piece wheels.  

The cage features 4 bars made of high-grade steel bar stock, and is similar in design to Ken-Tool’s passenger car/light truck, heavy-duty and earthmover tire inflation cages, and is made in the U.S.A.  It is rated to 80 psi, and addresses the possibility of a tire bursting because of over-pressurizing, damage or age; or slipping off the rim.

The cage is 17-3/8” (44 cm) L x 10-1/2” (26.7 cm) W x 25-3/8” (64.4 cm) H, with an opening of 10” (25.4 cm) W x 24-7/8” (63 cm) H.  Two 1” (2.54 cm) angle iron stops are on the floor to hold the tire/rim assembly upright.  The Utility Tire inflation Cage weighs 24 pounds (10.8 kg).  The Utility Tire Cage has a MSRP of $199.99, and is UPS-shipable.

Ken-Tool highly recommends the use of a clip-on chuck, a remote inflation/deflation valve and sufficient length of hose to allow the tech to stand clear during inflation.  

Ken-Tool products are available through leading tire industry supply distributors worldwide. More high resolution images are of the 36000-T107 Utility Tire Inflation Cage are available on line at
