Item Description:

The FLEX XC 3401 VRG Mini Backing Plate is 4.5 inches in diameter and allows you to use 5.5 inch pads with your FLEX XC3401 polisher. The plate is designed specifically for this polisher, and creates the forced rotation that sets the FLEX apart from other dual action buffers.

The secret to the FLEX XC 3401 VRG Polisher’s professional grade performance is in the backing plate. The unique design forces a true dual action motion, rather than jiggling. The backing plate’s fit and design reduce vibration and give you a smoother, more comfortable motion.

The FLEX XC 3401 VRG Mini Backing Plate is made of durable molded plastic with a urethane pad to dampen vibration and heat. Hook and loop fasteners cover the bottom of the plate from edge to edge. The backing plate is 4.5 inches in diameter. We recommend 5.5 inch pads.

Because of its special features, the FLEX XC 3401 VRG Polisher only accommodates a factory FLEX backing plate. Use a hex wrench to tighten the new plate securely onto the polisher. Add on a foam pad and you’re ready to polish!

The FLEX XC 3401 VRG Mini 4.5 Inch Backing Plate gives you the quality and performance you expect from a genuine FLEX factory part.

Flex mini backing plate

Just received it. Have only used once. Seems to work very well. I read where the after market by Lake Country had heating issues. Saw a video where Mike Phillips placed some air tool oil onto the felt pad underneath the wheel. Supposed to reduce the friction when pad is used for long periods of time. I supposed this is more for professional who used their machines everyday. I am just a DIY for my own cars so this will probably not be an issue.
  • Nicely made

Will need this for 5.5 pads

Will need this backplate for 5.5 pads. The backplate that comes with the Flex will fit, but there is very little margins around the side. This is a much better fit.
