How to shorten a link belt?

The motor on my contractor's saw is now resting against the stop rather than completely hanging from the belt. That is wrong isn't it; the belt is supposed to be holding it up, right?
I presume it has stretched a bit and I have to take a link out. It looks like you just twist an inside tab and push it through the hole, take a link out, and reverse. But sometimes thing are more complicated than they look. So, how do I shorten the belt?
I don't know the brand, but it is red. Thanks.
