Is a 1994 ford ranger tensioner pulley spring loaded cant get it locked back in place?

The tensioner has an arrow on it, indicating the direction it needs to be pulled to allow the installation of the belt. The pulling is accomplished by putting a standard 3/8" ratchet driver into the square hole, and putting hand pressure on the handle of the wrench. The square hole is in the middle of the tensioner, and you just pop your wrench into it like its a socket. Use a long driver, so its easier to overcome the tensioner spring.
