Changing tires with TPMS

Were do you start to demount on the rim equipped with a pressure sensor? Where to you start to mount? What to watch for? Also I use two ways to do this depending on the location I am changing the tire. On the ground with tire irons or with a cheap Harbor Freight tire changer. Any different method between the two?

Start 6" away from the TPMS sensor, and work your way away from it. Make sure as you work you do not put any pressure on the sensor. It is easier than you think.

Also keep in mind some sensors are in the valve stem while others are 180 in the center of the rim.

Thanks guys, mine are labled and near/part of the valve stem. BTW there is a youtube video of how to change the battery out so you don't have to spend $150 plus on a new sensor.
