Ken-Tool has unveiled its new "Blue Cobra" Truck Tire Demount Tool, which is ergonomically designed to allow a technician to quickly remove the tire from the rim on the floor.


The "Blue Cobra" tool is designed to service 20-, 22.5- and 24.5-inch rims mounted with tube or tubeless style wheels up to 13-inches wide.

The tool's head is made from premium grade steel, and equipped with two heavy-duty, industrial nylon rollers to protect the rim and provide rolling fulcrum points to reduce user fatigue. The head is press fit into the ergonomic shaped handle, made from heavy gauge steel tubing and equipped with a non-slip handle grip.

When servicing the new generation of wide tires, a forged aluminum bead support above the head grabs the top bead when lifting the bottom bead off the rim. The tool is ergonomically designed to reduce service technician back strain and reduce the time needed to demount the tire.

A patented leather wheel protector is included with the Blue Cobra, although Ken-Tool says the tool should not damage steel or alloy wheels.
