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.

Protector pad
Review by  Art from GA
Holes didn't match up real good but a simple little razor blade fixed that this thing has got some kind of gripping power. It's going to work out just fine. going to get one for my other orbital sander.

Does not fit Makita random orbit sander
Review by  johnny from
It sure has a lot of holes, too bad they are in the wrong places. Can not fit more than one hole on a standard Makita 7-hole 5-inch sander

5" Sander Hook and Loop Protector Pad
Review by  Wyowoodsmith from Hulett Wy
I love the AUTONET Sanding Disks, and this protective hook & loop pad helps protect my original pad, the AUTONET pads are tough as nails (Or Hickory) and would wear out a normal pad, If you have never used AUTONET disks, give them a shot, they last 6x's longer for me with ALL Species, Hard Maple, Bubinga, Bocote even Hickory. I would Highly Recommend this pad- Thanks again WWS for yet another High End Quality Product that will cut time and costs (Both I can pass on to my Clientele)

5" Sander Hook and Loop Protector Pad
Review by  Wyowoodsmith from Hulett, Wyoming
This protector pad is a definite "must" if using the Autonet abrasive pads, it saves the original "Hook & Loop" pad- my ONLY fault finding is that it doesn't match up w/ my RIDGID sander holes, still 5 stars

Protector pad and discs
Review by  Anonymous 
Pad and discs would not stay on the sander, The sander I'am using is an older Porter Cable RO model 333 I find that new pads for this sander are a problem and plan on replacing it. Will give it a good test when the new unit arrives.
