Premium 5' backing plate
May 16, 2020
Strong Velcro, very well built, seems like it will last for many years
ConsNone so far
Works as it should
May 14, 2020
Used this in an old Griot's legacy orbital to help speed up product applications. I prefer this size pad for such things and this made easy work of the switch to 5 inch pads.
ConsOnly time will tell

Smaller size better controll

The smaller size 5" gives me better control as opposed to the 6" backing plate.
ProsBetter control as I am a beginner.

Exact thing you need for a porter cable 7424. Pads fit perfect on it and stay nice and secure.
Nice Backing Plate
October 29, 2019
I was on the fence between this and one of the self cooling backing plates (like Griot's and others) that should run cooler. But with the Lake Country pads that have the hole in the center for that same purpose I am finding that this runs well with that. I may opt for one of the ones with holes in it to help keep it cooler next time though, not sure how much of a difference that will make. The pads I use only have holes in the center, and not all around like the Americana Global ones. If I were to switch to those, perhaps I would want a plate with the holes in it to line up with those.
Prosnice and square to the mounting post, no wobble
5” dual action hook & loop flexible backing plate
June 24, 2019
I purchased this as a replacement to the one that disintegrated after several years of use on my xp7424 This is a great replacement for the xp7424 to be used with the Lakeside foam pads I use. I plan to purchase another as a backup so If it fails I will have one on hand.
ProsGreat price Perfect replacement for the Porter Cable XP 7424.
Just as good as the original!
May 13, 2019
Bought this to replace the one that came with my Porter Cable DA, and it works just as well as the original. Thank you.

May 30, 2018
I started using it as soon as I received it. I used it for applying polishing compound and also for applying wax with my PC 7424xp electric polisher. It holds all types of pads firmly. Very happy with the purchase.
does the job
May 17, 2018
There's only so much to write in a review for an item like this. The thread is the perfect fit for my porter cable. The yellow foam is yellow. The hook and loops do indeed work and hold the selected pad in place.
It was exactly what I needed.

ProsServers it purpose

I have used it several times on my Porter Cable polisher and so far so good. Seems to be fine.
So glad I made the switch!
June 30, 2016
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
June 13, 2016
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.
Great product at a great price
May 29, 2016
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.
May 16, 2016
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.
