I still use this technique :)
That's a great idea too. Everything I tried at the time worked ok, but the trouble came when I was trying to release whatever I had used "squash" down the tire. In one case (when using a ratchet strap) once the tire was partially inflated, I attempted to release the strap and it came off so fast that the metal part of the strap hit my hand, causing a nice bruise.
I tried a rope as well without success. If I had my air compressor setup at the time that would have made it easier as well!
Thank you for the complements. I too was in a bind at the time and had tried several things, all of which failed. I tried rachet straps, which nearly broke my finger when I released it. I tried twisting a piece of rope around it and that didn't work either.
Glad it helped!I've used this several times since 2012 when I originally posted this.
