Dual-Action Hook & Loop Flexible Backing Plate 5"

5 inch molded urethane backing plate for excellent flexibility and balance by Lake Country MFG.

If German car makers 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 Dual-Action Polisher.

 5 inch lake country backing plate
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 Flexible 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-43-125DA measures 5 Inches in Diameter and is perfect for pads up to 6 inches.

    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.

    So glad I made the switch!
    I read so much online about converting my GG6 from the original 6" backing plate to the smaller 5" backing plate. I finally bit the bullet and ordered this along with a set of LC 5.5" pads, and man what a difference! My DA is so much easier to control now, it works faster, fits into more nooks and crannies, etc. It's just a total win win all around.
    ProsVery high quality and flexible, extremely easy to install

    Backing plate
    Have used this on four cars now, my old on was flexible but had become worn enough to replace. Glad I did .Make sure to mark a line on the back to keep tabs on rotational speed.
    ProsVery flexible hook and loop is strong.

    Needed a replacement backing plate for my Porter Cable polisher and this fits perfect. Have already used on my Honda, wife's Volvo and a very good friends Escape. All 3 now look fabulous.

    Good Product
    I attached this to my Harbor Freight DA polisher and what a difference. I noticed it did not generate as much heat as the backing plate that came with the polisher.

    Great replacement for HF pad
    I went the budget route on my DA and purchased an HF dual action. The backing pad on the HF is cheap and generates a lot of heat transfer to the foam pad. This caused problems with the hook/loop material on the foam pad separating. This backing plate is like night and day compared to the cheap HF backing pad. Virtually no heat at all and I am able to run the tool as long as I want without having to stop to allow the backing pad to cool. This is a no-brainer upgrade considering the savings on the DA from HF.
    ProsGreat quality and runs cool. Well balanced

    DA Polisher Flexible Backing Plate
    I operate a Mobile Auto & Boat Dwetailing Service as well Residential & Commercial Pressure Washing Service in Woodstock, Georgia and this site is helping me out tremendously as well as the helpful information by Mike Phillips on Auto Geek's website. Thus far this item is of very good quality, the delivery time was good and I'm very satisfied.
    ProsQuality, it doesn't absorb so much heat so that it literally melts in the center as the poor quality one that came with my new DA Polisher.
    ConsNo cons as of yet.

    Essential item
    This 5" backing plate is essential and superior for use with the 6" pads on a RA polisher. The smaller size prevents the plate from touching the paint surface like the 6" plate that came with the polisher. I would highly recommend this.
