My guess would be the other direction over the edge of the cutout. Looks like that should pull it tight against the belt that direction. Kind of looks like a little wear mark nick there.

I think your right. If the pivot is the black pulley, hooking the spring back there would pull the belt tight through the pulley ahead of it. And, there is the other spring to the left that is hooked in the same fashion.
