You don't need that. All you have to do is use the 'under over' method.
You see, the pulleys are designed to ride on the 2 different sides of the serpentine belt.

Simply put the flat ungrooved side against the flat pulleys, and put the grooved side on the grooved side of the next pulley, until you've done all but one, the idler or tensioner pulley.

Use a breaker bar to move the tensioner pulley in a way that the serpentine belt can be slipped on.

And that's it.

I have a 2000 pontiac montana and its making a load noise by the belts and its leaking some kind of oil and the water temp is maxed out

its probably the water pump pretty simple to change locate the large smooth pulley on top of the serp belt take out the 4 bolts take off the serp belt remove the smooth pulley the water pump is under the smooth pulley take out the 5 bolts on the water pump and the water pump will come out on the new water pump the gasket will only go on one way make sure you turn it the right way so the holes line up use a little gasket sealer to hold in the right place replace with new pump on the tension pulley there is a 3/8 square hole that you can put a long handled socket or breaker bar in to loosen the tension on the on serp belt so you can streatch the belt back over the pulleys i only wish the thermostat was as easy to change.

1992 Dodge Dynasty 3.3l installing serpentine belt

They do make a belt tensioner tool that is flat....stays out of the way better than a wrench or socket..
Was this the belt that came off this engine?
Is the belt the correct length?
It should just fit on easily.
Is the rest of the belt fully seated in the other pulleys?
Sometimes you put the belt on the tensioner pulley before finishing by installing the belt onto a/the flat idler stationary pulley last....then release the tensioner.

personally it is a really tight area to work in and if you are not experienced with mechanics i would get a pro to do it as if you misalign the pulley or break any bolts on it you are really screwed try jew the mechanic down as it is only about a 1 hour job if you know what you are doing

Toyota Echo 2002 A.C. and Serp Belt

Plug the connector back in & pull the AC fuse. You probably have the beginnings of a "locked up" compressor. The pulley will turn if the engine and the AC is off. When the compresser clutch is engaged, and the compressor is locking up, it will overheat & snap the serp belt.
