Bosch Automotive Service Solutions has introduced the OTC 5726 Bead Breaking tool set to break down automotive, motorcycle, ATV and small garden tractor tires.
Bosch says the new tool saves technicians time by easily and efficiently separating the tires from their rims.
The two-tool set includes a locking plier and pry tool which work together to efficiently break tire beads. The locking plier features a wedged jaw that is forced into the tire bead when clamped on the wheel rim. The pry tool is then hooked with the plier jaw, acting as a second wedge to break the bead and separate the tire from the rim. When the pry tool is pushed down, the tire bead is easily broken.
The 5726 Bead Breaking tool is covered by OTC’s lifetime warranty.
The bead breaking tool is now available through OTC’s distribution partners. For more information on the OTC Bead Breaking Tool, visit www.OTCTools.com.
