Gates.com says you need a tool to install the belt. They also make belts to fit the water pump used on the 3.0 in the Escape, which needs no tool to install, and is non-adjustable.

Well, I lied. Gates throws away something... When I tried the links, I got bupkis. Search Gates.com automotive aftermarket. The belt is stretchy and you need a tool.
