I was blasting on my n-frame Maxi and my pedal chain came loose so I pulled over and my chain tensioner had exploded off my bike. I bought a new one from Treats (the buzzetti one that's for the n-frame) but I couldn't figure out how to get it on.

It looks like the last one had a chunky piece that went between the arm and the frame and had a little peg that locked into the hole next to the mounting hole, but that peg has snapped off, and my new tensioner didn't come with one. Am I supposed to just lug this on real hard and it'll work? Or do I need that chunker? If I need it does anyone know what it's called or where to get one?
