So I have a Schwalbe tubeless ready front tire and a rim with no real channel in the middle. It's an extraordinarily difficult combination to mount and dismount. I've managed in the past, but for whatever reason, today I was less competent. I managed to launch and lose one of my blue Park Tool tire levers and break one of the ones on my multitool.
I called my LBS and they said they had some more awesome plastic ones that I should try. I figured I don't have anything to lose at this point, put my remaining Park Tool levers in my pocket, and went down there to have a look.
Just looking at them, the Pedro's levers are wider and have a more prominent hook shape. Since I've never broken a Park lever, I figured I didn't need to rule out plastic levers yet and I bought 'em.
Just unseated my tire. While still a pain - I still needed to use two at the same time - they stayed engaged with the tire bead, and I got it off successfully. Maybe one or two tries? Nothing bent, nothing broken, and they stay put. The Park levers were difficult to keep in place, probably part of why I kept launching them.
I'll write a review shortly. But kudos to Pedro's for figuring out how to make this cheap, mundane item very well.
