Same here, that's the part of a HT kit I've never had problems with, hilariously enough. It works fine if it's treated like an idler and not a tensioner. It usually needs a slight twist in the bracket to match chainstay angle relative to chain run. Put a spring on it if you want a tensioner. Ofc it's great if you don't need the thing at all.

I never use them anymore.
