5" Sander Hook and Loop Protector Pad
Your random orbit sander's pad will last longer
Rather than go through the frustration of buying a new hook and loop backer pad for your random orbit sander when it wears out, put the wear and tear on one of these protector pads instead. They're easier and much less costly than a new backer pad assembly for your sander. The protector simply attaches to the hook-and-loop pad on your 5" sander, then your sanding disc attaches to this pad. When it wears out, pull it off and put a new one on in a matter of seconds.
- Prevents the hooks on your sander's pad from wearing out by aggressive sanding
- Pad protector attaches to 5" (125 mm) random orbit sander backing pads
- Highly recommended when using Autonet, Abranet or any other mesh abrasive. Mesh abrasives wear out backer pad hooks quicker than paper sanding discs
- Accommodates any hole pattern on random orbit sanders
- Allows ultimate dust extraction with 75 holes
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.Eventually all hook and loop pads on random orbit sanders lose their ability to grip sanding discs, forcing you to replace the entire pad. Instead, wear out one of these protector pads:
- They're easier to replace
- They're a lot less money than a new pad
- They work with all dust extration hole configurations
- Works on Festool, DeWalt, Bosch, Milwaukee, Porter Cable and other 5" random orbit sanders with a hook and loop pad.

Wood is like a sponge, and it's always in a state of absorbing or releasing moisture to stay equalized with its environment. The problem with that is it also swells and shrinks. Here's what you need to know to protect your project.
