Item Description:

Dual Action Flexible 5 inch Backing Plate

Use the Dual Action Flexible 5 inch Backing Plate with 5.5 inch or 6.5 inch pads.

Designed to minimize heat transfer to the pad.

Hook and loop fasteners hold pad in place.

The Dual Action Flexible 5 inch Backing Plate will last through countless, rigorous uses without falling apart or becoming unbalanced. Balancing is essential when it comes to polishers because an unbalanced plate will bounce, leaving an uneven finish. The reinforced inner construction uses steel struts molded into the center hub to give the plate stability and maintain an even surface for your pad.

The Dual Action Flexible 5 inch Backing Plate minimizes the transfer of heat from the motor to the paint to prevent burning. Spontaneous heat build-up is reduced, which prevents burning of the paint.

The Dual Action Flexible 5 inch Backing Plate fits all polishers with a 5/16-24 spindle.

Great backing plates that hold the pads very well. I just wish they had holes to help with the heat transfer. Other than that, I have no complaints.

I didn't realize how worn my old plates were until I started using this one. I'm a professional and use this every day on both a Porter Cable 7424 and a Griot's Garage 3rd generation DA. I bought 3 of these. The hooks were beginning to wear out on the old ones I've had for years and wouldn't hold on to the Meguiars Microfiber pads very well anymore. They can be difficult to begin with. This backing plate has the micro hooks and they really grab onto whatever you stick on. You really have to be careful when you pull the pads off so you don't tear them in the process. I'm not complaining because it guarantees they won't go flying off in use. This product exceeds my expectations
ProsPrice is right Great quality Holds on tight to pads

Not too much to say except that it does exactly what I expected. The build quality is very good and I expect that it will last for a long time.
