Tire Valve stem installation

Talked with a man in Silverton, CO at the FMCA 4WD rally who told me he had a tool that allowed the installation of a new valve stem in a tire wheel from the outside, not requiring a tire-wheel separation. Have searched for such a tool without any luck of finding one. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Yeah really, I'd bet it is more difficult to install a new valve stem using that tool than they make it appear to be

That appears to be the way the tool operation was explained to me. The man said he had used it many times and next had any problems. Thanks for the feedback and the web location. Will probably get one of those little rascals

Years ago I had an air operated one. The stem went through a cone, all the way through (the air just blew it through.) Lots of lube needed. The tool holds onto it by the threads to keep it from dropping inside. Then you just yank it back up through the hole to seat it. Once you get the hang of it, it's easy

It's not really too bad, I used one many years ago when I worked in a gas station and it really only takes a time or two and you will find that it is much easier than the alternative.

Not too shabby. I've done it by breaking the bead, then using my feminine hands to get the stem in place, and attach a tool to pull the stem to seated position. (when I forgot to replace the stem before mounting the new tire) but this trick is a good way of doing things. I give it a cpl thumbs up. however I've never had to replace a stem w/o replacing tires....but that's just me.

Is it just me or the crowd I run with.....I have never had the need to replace a valve stem except when I bought new tires?

Valve stems are more commonly torn off if you hang with the rock crawlers.

Hi,

Keith from AME here (we're the producer of the valve tool). Thanks to prtemp for mentioning this forum to me. Just some quick answers on some of the questions that were asked about this tool. It really does work easily - lubricant is the key, and you don't have to use a lot. Our primary market for this was tire shops, especially as there have been some large valve recalls in the past years. We've since learned that the off-road and recreational vehicles have some demand for this item.

Thanks!

How much for the kit. I had to replace my valve after bending then breaking it after a trail run. I needed to fix it ASAP, so I cobbled one together. It worked very easily, but I'm not so confident my getup will work on the trail.
