Dual-Action Hook & Loop Flexible Backing Plate 6"

A molded urethane backing plate for excellent flexibility and balance.

If German carmakers think this backing plate is good enough to use on their top-of-the-line vehicles, you can bet it is the best plate you can buy for your vehicle. BMW and Mercedes-Benz both hail these backing plates as the best because of the outstanding properties of molded urethane. These Dual-Action Flexible Backing Plates minimize heat transfer, flexes to hug your vehicle’s curves, and are built to last. And they are the best backing plates you can buy for the Porter Cable 7424XP.

Molded Urethane is where it’s at. This material is flexible yet incredibly durable. This 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.

Another benefit of urethane is its resistance to heat. The Flex Backing Plate minimizes the transfer of heat from the motor to the paint to prevent burning. Spontaneous heat build-up is also reduced.

Remove and replace pads easily from the hook & loop surface. The hook & loop is molded into the plate so it will not come off.

  • The Flexible Backing Plate LC-43-148DA measures 6 Inches in Diameter and is perfect for pads 7.5" up to 8.5”.

    This plate is great for the Porter Cable 7424XP because it has a generous edge. Even if you turn the pad onto its side accidentally, there is an inch of flexible, beveled urethane between the edge of the plate and the inner construction. The backing plate fits any polisher that accepts a 5/16” thread.

    Use the backing plate preferred by some of the leading car manufacturers in the world to put the final touches on their vehicles. Our Dual-Action Flexible Backing Plate provides the safest, most durable surface for your pads so that you get the best performance possible from your dual-action polisher.

    These backing plates are designed to fit most dual action polishers including the Porter Cable 7424XP, Meguiars G110v2 and the Griots Garage Random Orbital Polisher.

    Perfect Fit for Griot's DA
    This fit my Griot's DA perfectly and looks very solid. It comes with a new washer and has a solid surface. Best of all, the price was way lower than the only replacement I saw on the Griot's site which didn't even look like the original. Buy this without hesitation.

    Works great
    It locks down my 6" Lake Country buffing pads. Had tried a 5" 3M backing plate but the pads didn't hold. Not sure if the problem was the smaller size or the compatibility of 3M with Lake Country but the Lake Country 6" backing plate does the trick.

    More stable than the 5"
    I bought this backing plate after using my PC 7424XP with the 5" backing plate that came with it. It's much more stable and offers more control and a better feel of what the pad and polisher are doing. I'm relatively new at polishing and this could be my imagination at work, but I do see better results.

    Happy Customer
    Very happy with this backing plate. I've been using the same one for over 2 years now with no problems. I have a Porter Cable 7424xp polisher and detail for friends and family.

    Poor Quality
    I used this product for a very short time, maybe 4 times and at first the pads started flying off and then the bolt feel off. I bought this machine as a replacement for another Porter Cable with a different head on it and used it for years (I had my own business) I loved it! U just put clothe covers on it and used different products to get the job done. I have tried to call and e-mail the company to no avail. I am very disappointed. I would diffidently not recommend this to anyone!!!

    Plastic Melted, bolt fell out
    This plate came with a kit I purchased from another site. After about 30 hours of use (no not all at one time) over a year and a half, the plastic melted causing the backing plate to fall off from the bolt that holds it in the buffer. Now in the middle of a buffing job I have no backing plate. Worked good while it lasted.
