I couldn't find the info here, but from the Gates web site the 91107 is marked 50/100/150 lb on the scale, and the 91132 is marked 100/200/300 lb on the scale.

I love the concept of this tension tester, but I had a terrible time using it on my 2002 Honda Civic LX. When testing the alternator belt, the frame and the engine mount prevent any human being with a normally articulated hand from using this tool. When testing the power steering belt the engine mount is once again in the way. The PS belt can be tested from below the car with the splash shield removed, but even with that relatively unobstructed view, the tool was awkward to use. The slightest bump on the indicating lever either before or after measurement can seriously skew the result. I think this would be a fine tool in relatively open spaces, like the engine bay of an old pickup truck, but not in a Honda Civic.

This gauge worked perfectly for me adjusting the A/C and ALT belts on a 77 308 Ferrari. The instructions are not easy to understand initially because of poor photo quality. All you have to do is position the gauge in middle of the belt with the flange on the side of the belt and press down on the center plastic finger rest until it clicks and that is it. Very simple. I suspect that the negative reviews may been due to defective gauges but mine clicked perfectly every time though the plastic pressure indicator arm was slightly long and jammed in the measurement reading slot initially. Trimming the end of the arm lightly with a file to free the arm corrected that problem and consistent and repeatable readings were then achieved. Increased the tension on the belt and the gauge gave increased readings until the proper tension was achieved. This gadget is a little strange looking but works real well for me.

This tool is short and sweet. It just works like it is advertised. It takes a moment to get the hang of it, but once you do it is the simplest thing in the world to use. You just stick your finger on the tool and press on the belt until it "clicks" (thus, the name cricket!). It gives you a fairly accurate reading of what your belt tension is. It's invaluable for both new and used belt installations.

Improper belt tension not only risks damaging or throwing a belt, shortening its lifespan and possible stranding you out in the middle of nowhere -but an over-tightened belt can significantly lower the lifespan of belt-driven accessories on your car or truck. Over-tensioning a belt for fear of loosing it or it slipping prematurely can cost you hundreds or more if you ruin the bearings in an expensive alternator or A/C compressor. Even if the bearing you ruin is an idler pulley it still means a possible breakdown or an annoying squealing item that needs to be replaced thousands of miles or years before it is due to be serviced again. It's REALLY embarrassing if it a vehicle you are working on for someone else.

For a few bucks, this thing tells you almost exactly the tension you are putting on your belts as you install and tension them for the first time. Some mechanics do this by "feel" but how do you learn this feel? -by making mistakes. Use this tool for a while and maybe you won't need to eventually -but at least you are learning something and aren't feeling around in the dark for what the proper tension should feel like. For as cheap as it is, it should be in every shadetree mechanics toolbox.

I ordered this gadget because I needed what it does, but didn't really pay much attention to the mechanism itself. Therefore, when my "Krikit" arrived, I definitely had to study it for a minute or two, because it was not entirely clear how it works. The picture on the photo-copied instructions was too faded to be any help. However, I finally understood it, took it out in the driveway, and it worked first try. It's actually a pretty clever mechanism. (Just lay it flat along the belt, push the black button until it clicks, and look at where the little lever arm is on the scale. I don't have an independent way to measure its accuracy, but based on what I know -- belt slightly loose, and what the proper tension spec is -- the measurement seems quite plausible. So, in summary, it's cheap, pocket-sized, elegant, and most important, it actually works.

The instrument is a little confusing to use, but it is quite accurate. Read the instructions, and measure at the right point on the belt. It has to be placed properly and you must take care not to disturb the lever after it clicks.
The above reviewer is confused. The belt tension as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer is in pounds or kilos. that is the tension on the belt between puleys. It is not the same as what it would take to push the belt in. In other words it is a gauge not a scale. It is calibrated to deflect the lever a certain angle dependent on belt tension with a steady force(thus the "click") It does not mean you deflect the belt with 50lbs of pressure.
I use this and others use this on high power exotics with critical timing belt tension. It works quite well, and is quite accurate. If you don't know how to measure belt tension ask someone who does, or go to a mechanic.
