The Makita 6.5 Inch Hook and Loop Backing Plate, a.k.a. back-up pad, is made to hold onto foam or wool buffing pads securely while your polisher is in motion. This backing plate has a 5/8" - 11 thread that fits most rotary polishers, including the Makita 9227CX3 Polisher.
The Makita 6.5 Inch Hook and Loop Backing Plate is constructed of a molded plastic plate with a foam padded interface to minimize heat transfer. The foam overhangs the edge of the plastic plate slightly to guard against accidental contact with the paint. Hook and loop fasteners securely hold onto the pad of your choice.
This 6.5 inch backing plate works well with Lake Country 8.5 inch foam and wool pads.
