Looking to buy a stretch belt installation tool. The ones I'm looking at are the Lisle, PBT and OEM brands. The PBT and OEM are the same design but OEM is fiberglass instead of aluminum. The Lisle looks well made but appears to be the largest so I could see fitment into tight places being an issue. Most common use would be for domestic vehicles mostly Fords. Anyone have experience with any of these tools?

I bought a Snap-On piece that was labeled as universal. I tried to use it on an LS motor and didn't work. Turns out GM gives you a tool with each belt so it was a waste of a purchase.

I bought the lisle. Used it when replacing the AC compressor on a 15 Escape. It worked great for that.
