A BETTER TYRE LEVER - nifty Dutch invention

Has anyone tried one of these TyreSwitch levers? I found it worked very well.

Yes, Alex, I checked out some videos of some clever dick (maybe with steel-rimmed fingers) demonstrating pulling a tyre off with no levers. They always make it look so easy.

Interested to see some real feedback/testing on known (to the owner) problem tyre/rim combos (e.g. deep rims with wire bead tyres). With the right tyre/rim combo, I can strip the tyre off with solely one normal  lever as portrayed with their device in the video, or even sometimes solely my hands... So I have little faith in the portrayed ease on those videos. Be great if it was that easy for those difficult combos!
