It is an auto *range* tensioner. Once it is set at the correct range, when installed correctly, tension is set by rotating the tension mechanism and an internal spring should
keep between a min and max range. After it's set it should NEVER
go outside of that range faster than the belt stretch would allow it to do.
What we're talking about is new tensioners going far beyond the max slack limit shortly after correct installation, thus not maintaining correct tension.
