Changed my own tubeless tire.
After looking at some portable bead popping devices, I decided to try this one out, since I read that this would work on big-adventure-bike wheels. I was worried because one of the tires I need to change is on a R1150GSA, which has a 1 inch or so lip that the bead rests on.
The units are light weight but have a good feel to them. They feel like what you would expect from a tool of this price. They take up more room than the tire irons I used to carry, but they are about the same weight. Easy choice for my kit.
In order to test this out, I changed a tire using just these tools (and a brush to clean up the rim). I was able to do this without much fuss. On the aggressive GS rear rim, I did have to use the tool in 4-5 spots on each side of the rim to finally break the bead. I placed the tool so it would be between two spokes each time. The tool pushed the tire down to the end of the 1" lip, which has a little ridge to further keep the tire in place. Once I got the whole bead down to the ridge it took just a little bit more push to get the bead into the dip. Removing the tire took 20 minutes at a careful pace. If your concern is that this tool won't be able to break your heavy duty bead, it will.
Further, I completed the tire change with just those 2 tire irons. Contrary to some reviews, the irons gave me plenty enough mechanical advantage to remove and mount the tires. You just have to make sure the bead on the other side stays in the dip of the rim.
Just like any other hand tire tool, be careful and don't apply too much force to your rims. If any step of the tire change is difficult, you may be doing it incorrectly.

Best thing since sliced bread!
These ingenious little tools are indispensible for breaking the bead quickly and easily. So much better than trying to use the kickstand or pound on the bead hoping not to hit the rim. Also double as tire irons, light weight and easy to stow. Wish I had invented them.
