    DriveAlign® Automatic Belt Tensioners

    Gates is a global leader in Original Equipment System Design, and we bring the same OE-quality, durability, fit, and performance to our premium DriveAlign® Automatic Belt Tensioners. We ensure every tensioner is manufactured to rigid tolerances and specifications that guarantee OE fit, form, and function.

    • Comprehensive line includes parts to fit cars, vans, SUVs, and light trucks.
    • Full line coverage for import, domestic, and heavy-duty cars, trucks, and vehicle applications.
    • Patented labyrinth seal protects internal components to meet or exceed OE life expectancy requirements.


    The accessory belt drive tensioner automatically adjusts tension in the Micro-V® belt to ensure proper function and output of accessory components, dampens peak loads during engine acceleration and deceleration, and ensures your belts and engine perform when your vehicle needs them most. From casting quality to the design of internal components, we understand that every aspect of a tensioner is critical to long service life, which is why we've engineered our DriveAlign® tensioners to exceed some of the most rigorous quality and performance standards in the industry.
