Please consider using one of the following 3" diameter plates:

• Mirka® 913G (1/4-20 thread)
• Rupes® 990.007 (6mmx1.0 thread)
• Meguiar's® DBP3 (5/16-24 thread)
• Mirka® 102GG (5/16-24 thread
• Rupes® 9P08.060 (5/16-24 thread)


This backing plate features size 5/16-24 female thread. It is designed to be used with any of the five included adapters (see specifications below for sizes). Simply place the included washer* on the plate, then install the appropriate adapter.

Although this plate was painstakingly designed to optimize the performance of Meguiar's Unigrit™ Sanding and Foam Finishing Discs, it is an outstanding choice for use with any sanding disc or buffing pad.

The flared edge of the plate is soft and pliable, so it works well on curved or complex surfaces. The top of the plate is aluminum, and very stiff. Six holes assure thorough cleaning of the surface if used with a vacuum system.

The micro hook attachment material is ideal for use with sanding discs because the hooks will not protrude beyond the loop backing of most discs (a common cause of pigtail scratches when soft backed sanding discs are used).

*Caution- the washer must be used, as it helps to distribute applied force and pressure over a broader area.  If you do not not use the washer, there is a very good likelihood that the threads inside the plate will fail... so use it!
