The concept is the best choice if you must use a tensioner. Spanning the seat and chain stays will assure the tensioner stays where you put it and can't loosen and rotate into the spokes with the expected results.

As for the kit supplied tensioner brackets, almost without exception they will need to be bent/twisted to some degree to achieve proper chain/sprocket/tensioner wheel alignment.
