Manual Chain & Belt Tensioners

Manual Chain & Belt Tensioners

Manually adjust the tension on your chains and belts with these tools, also known as chain and belt tighteners. They attach to an idler sprocket or pulley with a tightener shaft. Tensioners help prevent belts and chains from slipping and breaking due to improper tension, extending the life of your belts and chains and avoiding damage to the drive system's components.

Adjusting Tensioners

Adjusting Tensioners

Adjustable tensioners have a shaft holder that can be set at an angle to maintain proper tension on belts and chains.

Double-Adjusting Tensioners

Double-Adjusting Tensioners

These tensioners allow more flexible positioning than single-adjustment tensioners. The rotating arm can be adjusted up to 360° to maintain proper tension on belts and chains, and an adjusting slot on the base allows it to be quickly repositioned for easy mounting.

Tightener Shafts

Tightener Shafts

These tightener shafts are hardened and ground for maximum life, and must be used with compatible idlers and drive tightener.
