You can buy these at nearly any auto supply store, and most hardware stores. You will also need an appropriate sized wrench with which to remove the battery terminals.

This will help to keep from shorting the battery while connecting or disconnecting the terminals and possibly causing damage andor personal injury.
If your vehicle does not use an automatic tensioning device, then check belt tension as follows: With the engine turned off, grasp the belt at a convenient point about 8 to 10 inches from the alternator pulley. Move the belt slowly up and down. The belt should not move more than about 12 inch. If the belt seems to be excessively loose, then of course it will require tightening andor replacement.
