Default Staun Beadlocks

Has anybody seen the (relatively) new Staun Tire Beadlocks? They work with any rim. From what I can tell they are basically a tube insert that is pressurized to (a minimum of 2psi) more than the tire itself. You have to drill a hole for the 2nd valve stem. They look tough to assemble but bulletproof when installed. Even allows run-flat limping without rim damage. Anybody have any idea how much they cost? I can't find prices anywhere on the web.

(Made by the same manufacturer as Staun Tire Deflators.)

Plus a few guys that have them on Pirate say they still lose beads. It gets pushed around in there by the tire bead under extreme load and they move and lose air. Kinda pricey to not be a positive lock. And they are from overseas somewhere. I though australia but killerb may be correct in sweden.
