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).

Stays Cool
Used to run a Megs backing plate but it got to hot in the center and came apart on a Porter Cable style DA. This plate has cooling holes on the outside and one in the center. Plate is solid in the center and has a little flex on the outer edge and it tapers nicely at the edge. Plate runs cool under load and performs well. Very happy after polishing with it for a week.

Must have for G9
This is a must have for a G9. This backing plate works a lot better than the 6 inch that the G9 come with
