Abstract : A pry plate on the end of the tire removing tool holds a portion of the tire bead above the wheel rim, and a ratchet mechanism swings arms around the rim to increase the length of the arc of the circumferential portion of the tire bead that is lifted above the rim. This arc may be increased until the entire bead has been lifted above the rim, and the tire removed. A jack body and shaft of a ratchet type is the power source for swinging the arms. (Author)
