This tool can be used to keep the ends of the GT2 belt together while you remove the two screws that holds the cover plate on top of the sliding blocks.
When mounting the belt, the idea is to first slide the belt ends into the tool. The tool then keeps the belt in place, while you tighten the screws for the cover plate.

Hey thanks for the tool,

I messed around with it for a while, and you can get it to attach as shown above it's a good model.

I found it pretty hard to use. It was easier, in the end to tighten the 2 screws on 1 side of the (provided Rais3D) block onto the belt, then slide the belt into the other side of the block, before tightening, not using this tool.

Maybe I was using it different? but seemed the same as the photo.

The belt tension can only be "adjusted" in increments/decrements of one tooth. I think there's only one correct position of the belt in the slider block = where it was installed from the factory. If you really think it's necessary to increase tension (which I doubt) then I would look into adding a small "clip tensioner" on the belt, just opposite the slider block when the slider block is centered between the end stops. I wouldn't look at the belts as a reason for X/Y shifts.

this looks great. I have having some x axis layer shifts, they are very small but annoying. is this tool good for tightening the belt? as in you would take one side and try and get one extra notch deeper or something. or is there another way to tighten the belts on the printer?

Do not mess with the belts on an N2 or N2 Plus Raise3D printer. If you have to disassemble the carriage, then yes, you have to mess with them. If the X-Y rods are not aligned correctly then adjust them (search the R3D forum). The belts will never stretch - they cannot. Eventually they can come apart, but then you will know and replace them.
