|Dual-Action 5 Inch Flexible Backing Plate|
Perfect balancing and flexibility are the keys to good polishing!
Dual action polishers are supposed to jiggle, but never wobble. If your polisher seems to be doing a strange dance, your backing plate may be off balance. DA polishers, like the Porter Cable 7424XP, move in multiple directions and a poor quality backing plate may be a lousy dance partner. You need a plate that can keep its balance despite the varied motion of the polisher. The Dual Action 5 Inch Flexible Backing Plate is an excellent choice!
The 5 Inch Backing Plate from Lake Country Manufacturing is a molded urethane backing plate that is made with steel struts molded into the center of the plate to give it stability. The urethane gives the plate some flexibility. The plate will bend slightly at the edges to compensate for the rounded surfaces of your vehicle. The edge of the plate is recessed so that you cannot accidentally bump the plate on your vehicle’s paint.
In addition to flexibility, the urethane has an excellent resistance to heat. It minimizes the transfer of heat to the pad to prevent paint burning. The urethane also reduces spontaneous heat build-up. Overall, you get a safer polish with the Dual Action 5 Inch Flexible Backing Plate.
The backing plate has Velcro® brand hook & loop fasteners molded into the urethane from edge to edge. The fasteners provide a secure hold to Lake Country Foam Pads, which are also equipped with Velcro® brand fasteners. Use a 5.5 inch or 6.5 inch pad with this plate. Always use a pad that is larger than the backing plate to keep the plate from coming into contact with your paint.
The Dual Action 5 Inch Flexible Backing Plate fits any polisher that accepts a 5/16” thread.
Protect your paint from a wobbling, unbalanced pad by using the Lake Country Manufacturing Dual Action 5 Inch Flexible Backing Plate. With durable urethane construction, inner steel struts, and a recessed edge, you’ll experience an even polish every time.
