Ultimaker Adjustable Belt Tensioner

So you tension the belts by pushing the screws against the belts? This will decrease the life span of your belts I assume.
pst: those nuts and bolts are metric, M3 mostly save for some grub screw.
I like that you can set the tension with one screw, but as Yvo mentioned, it is rather bulky and awkward to have opposite the slider. next one is slider mountable?
check this one..Â adjustable andÂ its less bulky, hides very good.

Give a Shout Out
a) Install tensioner on belt with chink looking inside Ultimaker, to prevent jamming with printing head holding blocks on sides.
b) Because tensioner is high enough, do not use it on side where Z-axis located, as it can be hampered by moving bad for printed objects.
Look on images for more info.
