Griot's Garage 5 Inch Vented Backing Plate

Cooling ports deliver smoother operation, longer pad life!

Griot’s Garage 5 Inch Vented Orbital Backing Plate is a MUST if you find yourself performing more than a one-step detail. Why? The vented designed ensures longer pad life by operating a cooler temperatures. Heat is the number 1 culprit of pad failure, and it also plays a role in extended wear on backing plates. If you use your random orbital polisher often, a Vented Orbital Backing Plate is an investment that will pay for itself over and over again. Don’t let a worn out backing plate or collapsed foam pads stop you from having fun in your garage!

The Griot's Garage Vented Backing Plate is a performance upgrade to your corded 6" Random Orbital and cordless 5" Lithium-Ion Random Orbital. It's a win-win as the exclusive heat management system with vertical and horizontal cooling ports delivers smoother operation, longer pad life, and better results. Griot's Garage Vented Backing Plate features firm yet flexible high-density urethane foam with chamfered edges for flexibility and improved contouring over and around body panels. Griot's Garage Vented Backing Plate's center recess further reduces heat transfer. The Velcro® brand Micro-Hook attachment is optimized to create the perfect balance between strong pad engagement and easy disengagement. Griot's Garage Vented Backing Plate also has rotational speed markings for optimum pad speed control.

Fits Griot's Garage 6" Random Orbitals (part no. 10750, 10765, or 10813), the G9 (part no. 10901), and random orbital/dual-action tools that accept a 5/16" - 24 threaded shaft.

Is not compatible with the four-screw mounting system on the original Griot's Garage Random Orbital (part no. 10925).

A G9 Necessity!
The 5" backing plate was an easy swap onto my new G9. Keeps the pads cool, and the 5.5" seems better suited to body lines & the G9. Very happy with this backing plate, very easy to install.

Nice product!
This makes the G9 buffer even better. It helps with those hard to reach places while giving you twice the options.

Works perfectly for Griot's G9
I replaced my 5 inch lake country baking plate with this one and it reduced vibrations noticably. The venting holes are a plus.
