Question about 1992 Hyundai Sonata
Tensioner bearing may have failed. Does it tilt when you pull on it? Check all pulleys on the belt for play/tilting. Replace any component that you can tilt significantly.

Maybe the belt was not center on the pulley's, try it again, make should the belt is center on all pulley, there no other reason why the belt would pop off, if the engine was not running.

Tips for a great answer:
Excessive belt tension will cause damage to the alternator and water pump pulley bearings, while, on the other hand, loose belt tension will produce slip and premature wear on the belt. Therefore, be sure to adjust the belt tension to the proper level.
To adjust the tension on a drive belt, loosen the adjusting bolt or fixing bolt locknut on the alternator, alternator bracket or tension pulley. Then move the alternator or turn the adjusting bolt to adjust belt tension. Once the desired value is reached, secure the bolt or locknut and recheck tension.

Remove the alternator/power steering and water pump drive belt to gain access to the air conditioning belt.
Loosen the tensioner pulley locknut, then turn the adjusting screw to raise or lower the tensioner pulley assembly. Remove the belt.
Install the belt.
To adjust the belt, loosen the tensioner pulley nut and adjust the belt tension by tightening the adjusting screw. Tighten the pulley nut to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm) after adjustment.
