Ken-Tool Re-Introduces the T45AC Classic Tire Mounting Tool.

AKRON, Ohio – July 30, 2008 – Back by popular demand, Ken-Tool announces the return of the T45AC Classic tire mount/demount iron. The company’s patented design offers one-piece construction, heat-treated for strength and long life.

The tool’s tip ends insert easily and will not cut or rip the bead or sidewall, and the design makes it easier to mount and demount tires without changing the way the tool is used.

 The mount end features a precision-forged knob to grip the tire’s rim. Tip designs won’t slip during tire mounting, and it’s specially curved construction securely grabs the bead edge every time. The demount end features a precision-forged angled tip that easily slides between the bead and rim. Its forged design means the tool won’t slip while demounting the second bead.
