Tire Bead Breaking Tool (TBBT-2) Designed for the Homebuilt Aircraft, and GA owners. No more struggling with clamps, vices, mallets to break the bead. No more finding an A&P with the traditional breaking tool to use and working on the floor putting all your weight into the handle to break the bead. Now you have a new option.
The TBBT-2 unique design leverages the power of the mechanical advantage of the clamp technology used in the Experimental Aero’s Deep Reach Dimpling Tool (DRDT-2) and makes breaking your tire bead even easier.
Compared to the traditional bead breaking tools (from Brand B and M) which are adjustable for larger tires which changes their mechanical advantage, the TBBT-2 has a significantly lower operating force (2.5 to 4 times). You can even operate the TBBT-2 on your work bench. What this means is you can now break the bead without breaking your back.
For those DRDT-2 owners who are now flying but keeping the DRDT-2 for future use the TBBT-2 is even more affordable. By purchasing the TBBT-2 frame only, the DRDT-2 owner can transplant the clamp assembly to the TBBT-2 frame.
The TBBT-2 is available in two options. TBBT-2 Frame Only-For DRDT-2 customers who are now flying and keeping the DRDT-2 for future use and transplanting the DRDT-2 clamp assembly onto the TBBT-2 frame. TBBT-2 Complete Unit (Includes Clamp Assembly)
