Drive Belt Tension Gauges

Krikit advantages:
- enables the user to get to those cramped areas to measure belt tension.
- cost effective way to get a tensioner into the hands of every mechanic.
- small enough to carry around in your pocket.

Improperly tensioned belts cause slippage, squealing, heat build-up and premature failure. Dayco engineers recommend careful belt tensioning. After a new belt has been installed, run the engine for 3 to 5 minutes to seat the belt. After seating the belt, reset the tension to amount recommended as per the vehicle manufacturers specifications.
