I had a heck of a time and to this day I still have the same kick stand

Oh wow, Fair,
That second photo looks like something you'd find abandoned on the side of the road.
I hope at least that you had wrenches with you.
Did you see my post about using model airplane propellers for tire tools? They work great. I have a couple that work better than any tool I've tried. You need the big ones, 18 / 20 inch props and the carbon composite ones are better than wood. I know a lot of guys use their fingers but the propellers make the job much easier on the finger tips.
