Default Anyone have a Gates Stretch Belt Tool?

I have a 2010 STi and I am going to install my Grimmspeed lightweight pulley but I dont have this tool. Does anyone have one that I can rent/borrow?

Thanks!

I have a 2012 forester and installed my grimmspeed without the gates tool.

just turn the crank and pull the belt towards you to "walk it off" slowly, and use the same method getting it back on (push the belt, turn crank, slowly walk it on)

Yeah getting it off that should be easy enough to do it that way, idk about getting it on, but hey if you did it without too much trouble that means it can be done

I did it without the tool. Wasn't too hard but it definitely wasn't easy. It would help to have a second set of hands, but its doable.
