Details
The Koolstop Tyre Mate is an articulated tool, with a comfortable grip, for installing really tight tyres.
The articulated end uses the rigid piece against the rim edge as a fulcrum while the hinged end lifts the bead up and over the opposite edge of the rim.
This is a great tool for dealing with difficult tyres without causing any damage to the tube, tyre or rim.

Due to the straight design of the jaws, these are best suited to road/un-treaded tyres.

Prossee above
Not really a review of an unfamiliar product as I was merely replacing Koolstop lost on a recent ride when it fell out of my saddle bag without me realising. Wouldn't be without it and bereft when realised i'd lost it. Replaced by placing order online for it same night which shows how much I value it! Brilliant piece of kit!!

ProsFits tyres no problem
I already have more than one of these, (when they were called Simpson) one for each bike and one for the workshop. I bought this for a friend.
There are tyres I could not fit by hand but this device does it easily.

Proslight, simple, cheap and easy to use
I have been cycling for 40 years and only just discovered this tool - an absolute boon - no more pinched and inner tubes when fitting tight tire casings! If only I had known about this simple device years ago!!

Prosbrilliant at getting tyres onto rims
This is the perfect tyre lever for getting tyres on , no more pinching the innertube with standard levers , no more destroying your poor thumbs. Use this to easily pull the final sections of tyre over and into the wheels . Its especially ideal with Tubeless tyres which can be brutal to get on .
Every roadie should have one in there garage

ProsPutting on tyres without breaking thumbs
Other reviews look very positive so I hope this does the trick. Came with no instructions and seems expensive for what it is but if it does the trick then I'll be happy.

Prossimple and easy to use
saw this at local bike shop when had to get my son's basketball wheelchair tyres turned. they told me where to get it and its great. Really easy to use and takes so much hassle out of putting a tyre back on. Use on both his day chair and basketball chair. Came really quickly and exactly as described.

ConsNone (although could proably get away with a shorter handle)
ProsCompact and easy to use
This tool is actually better than I anticipated. Took me seconds to pull that last segment of tyre over the rim - no pinching, no problems (and that is with the Gatorskin tyres) - would definitely recommend and, I now carry with me on rides ... just in case!
