what aren't you guys doing that you need a special tool to fit the tube ???

I am not trying to be a smart ass... just interested why you'd need a tool...

Good tech regardless

It would come in handy when changing a tube I would think...not necessarily a tire depending on your method. I know I'm gonna make one of these to carry in my fender bag. Nice work, Creeper. Just so happens I have one of those cheap core tools in the garage that never gets used...until now.
