After watching the video, to me it looks like those of us who use the Pitbull tire wedge would not find this new tool useful. The tire wedge keeps the wheel at the correct height to slide in and out, and it appears in the video that this new tool requires the wheel to be dropped after the axle is removed to clear the rear caliper. That would defeat the purpose of using the tire wedge. I use captive spacers and now the tire wedge, and remove the rear caliper, every time I replace the rear tire. It's a pain removing the rear caliper, but it cuts down on paint loss maneuvering the rear wheel out and back.
That's a really cool tool ... almost wish I needed one!
