This is the official statement
Due to the Government restrictions put in place on 23rd March 2020, many suppliers and customers have taken the decision to close. We have taken the difficult decision to close our operation from close of business on Tuesday 31st March 2020 until further notice.

During this time we will have very limited or no access to emails and therefore we will respond on our return.

We appreciate your support at this difficult time and we will re-open as soon as possible.

Stay safe and well, we are all in this together.

They're not responding to online enquiries through the response form either. Apparently they've moved premises or so their website says. It's as if they've disappeared off the face of the earth... :scared

I need to order a £55 hose, so the 10% discount would be useful.

I will let you all know how I get on!

There website is really poor, even doing something as simple as sending them a message result in errors.

Belt is GTB1233, tensioner is FDU2691 - the GTB number is Unipart of course.

Or buy a Gates powergrip kit, including the tensioner:

PowerGrip® Kit (belt and tensioner combined kit)
K015233XS

PowerGrip® Belt (individual)
5233XS
PowerGrip® Tensioner Pulley (individual)
