The FLEX XFE7-15 5 inch Backing Plate, using the hook and loop method of attachment, was designed for use with the FLEX XFE-715 Long Stroke Orbital Polisher and made for 5 inch to 6.5 inch pads. FLEX XFE7-15 5 inch Backing Plate is constructed with a dense foam for stability, and attaches to the FLEX XFE7-15 Long Throw Polisher securely. This heavy duty, hook and loop backing plate will firmly attach to your pads while in use to prevent any slippage during a detail. The hole in the center of the backing plate helps keep your pads cooler while in use, preventing a build-up of heat. Rather than limit yourself to 6.5 inch pads and larger, use your FLEX XFE7-15 Long Throw Orbital Polisher to its full potential with the FLEX XFE7-15 5 inch Backing Plate!
