Front tire not sealing

Any ideas on how to get a front Tourance to seal to the rim so I can even begin to inflate it? I've tried a tie-down strap around the circumference to force the bead in to the rim but I can't put enough pressure on it to do any good. I've seen an inflatable strap used for cage tires but I need something for on the road as well as at the house.

No, I don't particularly want to try the WD-40 and a lighter technique. But I'd love to watch someone else try it. On their bike.
