12894 Bead Keeper


Gaither’s Bead keeper is the original tool for assisting in the mounting process. Being made of drop-forged steel, the Bead keeper simply locks onto the flange of the wheel and holds the tire bead in place to eliminate standing on the tire and/or chasing the bead around the wheel.

There are 4 versions of Gaither’s Bead keeper.

  • The original (12894) is made of drop-forged steel.
  • The Rubberhead (12894-C) and Wide Mouth Rubberhead (12894-CW) are coated to protect Aluminum wheels from being scratched.
  • The Keepers-on-a-rope (12894-P) are sold as a pair connected by a nylon rope.



HOW THE BEAD KEEPER 12894/12894-C/12894-CW/12894-P Works:

Gaither’s Bead keeper is used to hold the tire in place while mounting the secondbead. These tools eliminate the dangerous job of standing on the tire in orderto mount it. After the first bead is mounted, simply place two Bead keepers on the flange of the wheel and spread them apart as far as possible. Use the Spoon End of the bar to mount a small part of the bead and slide the closest Bead keeper to the bar. Repeat this step until the entire second bead is mounted.
