Tensioner

A hydraulic tool used to tighten a fastener by stretching it rather than by applying a substantial torque to the nut.  After the tensioner has stretched the bolt or stud, the nut is run down against the joint with a modest torque, and the tensioner is disengaged from the fastener.  The nut holds the stretch produced by the tensioner.
