I always tap inward around the edge of the lock ring as I GENTLY inflate the tire so that it locks into the groove of the rim. It's always best to lay a big fat 2x6 across the top while inflating so that the lock ring is held away from your bean.

I was always taught to first check the ring is in place properly , connect the air hose (in those days ,hand pump), turn the wheel over (ie)ring facing the ground then carefully inflate ,if something did go wrong at least your head stayed intact.

Finally I had success this weekend. I got all the tires mounted, inflated, and installed safely. After seating the non-notched end of the rim, prying about 180 degrees out from the start point did the trick. Then I just followed the rest of the rim around until the whole thing clicked in. Stepping on the rim with my foot seemed to help a lot as I went around too.

Thanks again,

Dave
