    ^^^^ that's how I do it on the rims I care about not scratching also. Going slow and carefully lining up the tool against the bead has worked so far. This resurrection of the thread got me looking at their website again. The newer style stands look like a nice improvement over the 1.0 version.

    I do appreciate how compact it stores since I don't have a lot of garage space. And once I came up with a working method to secure the wheel to the changer base it gets easier each time.

    I asked this question when I first received the tool. What was suggested and I did is to buy the Marc Parnes balancing tool and use the center hub part to hold the tire installing lever in place. I don't have a video.

    I carry my bajanopinch tool in a long sock inside my tool bag. Even though I have changed tyres for years I still hate pinching the tube trail side.

    So is anyone using this on their Tubliss setup?

    wondering if it messes up the tire bead to where it doesn't seal very well...

    Worked just fine on mine, no problem at all. Mine didn't damage the bead at all

    Has anyone tried the TMT4 Lite?
    I am seriously considering that as I have always wanted a stand anyway.
    Looks great but trying to justify the cost...

    Apparently they have a new upgraded changer now available, well new to me anyway. I have a No-Mar that I am happy with but this is definitely cool.

    It's nice, but I would like a bit more protection on the metal bits.

    I bought a TMT4 Tire Changer. I ordered it in a color to match my KTM's.
    It was a simple request, "KTM Orange" ... PLEASE. :rilla
    Because there's simply no space in my garage for anything that isn't orange.

    65 days later, and its here. :happay
