How do you fix a tension control knob?

Turn the control knob clockwise slightly to stiffen it. To soften it, softly turn it counterclockwise. Hand-hold the control knob and spin the set screw clockwise to secure it once it has been adjusted to the correct tension.

If you have more than one string with loose or broken controls, all strings will need to be replaced. The mechanism that lifts the strings off of the body of the guitar is called the pick-up. This article does not cover electric guitars, which have their own repair procedures; see an expert if you need help.

How do you disassemble a belt tensioner?

To loosen the serpentine belt, turn the socket wrench clockwise and slide it off the tensioner pulley. Allow the tensioner to return to its original position. Unbolt the belt tensioner unit from the motor using a socket wrench. Take the assembly out of the engine compartment. Be sure to remove any debris that may be in contact with the belt before reattaching it to the motor.

How do I adjust the tension on my engine belt?

Locate the adjustment bolt on the serpentine belt tensioner and adjust the tension by loosening or tightening the adjuster bolt with a rachet and socket while gently moving the belt back and forth to find the correct tension. Make sure to keep your hands away from the belt when adjusting it!

If you have an automatic transmission, then the manual says you should also check the belt tensioners on the transmission side. Automatic transmission tensioners are usually accessed through the end of the tubular body where the tube connects to the casing. Loosen the locknut that holds the tensioner arm in place, then lift the tensioner arm up and away from the tubular body. Check the belt tension between the arm and the body; if necessary, loosen more nuts and/or bolts to ease the tensioner off the tubular body.

Manual transmission tensioners are accessible by removing two bolts that hold the tensioner down against the chassis. The arm can be lifted up and away from the chassis frame to check the belt tension.

Keep in mind that engine belts wear out over time due to constant movement of the pulleys they're connecting. If you drive a car for long periods of time but don't tighten the belt enough so that it doesn't move too much past its normal range, then it will cause premature engine failure.

How do you tighten a pulley?

With the ratchet and socket, turn the adjustment bolt on the side, top, or bottom of the pulley counterclockwise until the auxiliary belt is loose enough to remove. Tighten the tensioner pulley by using the ratchet and socket to move the adjustment bolt clockwise until the belt is snug.

If necessary, refer to your owner's manual for help tightening other types of pulleys.

How do you adjust the tension on Shimano SPD pedals?

Turn the tension adjustment bolts a quarter turn clockwise on each bolt and each pedal. In the doorway, try the pedals again. Continue to make little changes until you are satisfied with the pedal tension. The tension is a personal preference, but if it is too loose, you may accidently come out of the pedals. If they are too tight, you won't be able to move the foot plate.

How do you adjust the bar tension?

Find the location where the two tension rod parts join together. Tension rods are made up of two interlocking shafts with a strong spring inside. Place one hand on either side of the point where the rods link and twist counterclockwise to extend or clockwise to shorten the tension rod. This will allow you to adjust the bar tension.

The bar tension controls how tight or loose the straps are on your bike. Too tight and the straps will cut into your skin, too loose and it'll be easier for you to work yourself out of trouble. Ideally, you want them just tight enough so that if something does go wrong, the straps won't slip off.

1. Find the location where the two tension rod parts join together.

2. When tightening the tension rod, make sure that you don't overdo it. If the straps are too tight, they may cause pain when climbing or cause you to lose muscle tone, which could lead to other injuries.

How do you adjust the tension on a gate hinge?

To adjust the tension on the hinges, use a #3 flat-head screw driver. You may need to use a #2 Phillips screwdriver to remove the toe catch from the bottom hinge. You'll see a groove at the top of the hinge. To increase tension, press down firmly and turn counter-clockwise with the flat-head, and vice versa. Do not overtighten.

If the hinge is still loose after tightening, it may be necessary to replace it with another type of hinge.

The toe catch holds the bottom end of the gate in place. If the toe catch is worn away or broken, the gate will not close completely. You can repair or replace the toe catch - simply pull it off and replace it with a new one. To do this, take the hinge apart, if needed, and then put it back together.

Make sure that you install new screws to attach the toe catch to the hinge leg. Then reassemble the unit.

Replacing the hinge is easier than repairing it. Hinges can be purchased new or used. New hinges are more expensive but last longer. Used hinges are less expensive but may need replacement sooner. Check both sides of the hinge for wear before buying them used.

Adjusting the tension on a gate hinge is easy to do. The only tools you need are a flat-head screw driver and a pair of scissors.
