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
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.

5” dual action hook & loop flexible backing plate
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.

Excellent backing plate
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
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.

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.

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.
