I installed this without even needing the screw/bolt to clamp it on the crossmember threaded rod. I thought it would fall off eventually, but it's still there. My belt is very loose, but this is making the y-travel accurate enough to make another Y-belt tensioner that will put more tension on the belt.
yes, it does, but very, very slowly. I'll upload second version of this thing which now includes bearing

3. Adjust belt tension with the inclination of your tensioner in respect to the ground
4. Tighten with M3x20 screw and nut with washer.
