Meguiar's makes excellent products and this is no exception. A backingplate doesn't really do much but hold buffing, polishing, etc. pads in place while you polish/wax your car. It is well made and did the job.
Backing Plate is Good
Well you have to use a backingplate anyway, and this is it.
This plate has the loop hook velcro type fasteners, so all you do is put your pad against it and go. Pad will not come off until you remove it yourself. I use the mequiars pads and other makes will most likely work if they have the velcro surface. Built extremely well, good for many years of constant use.
Fits your typical polishing tool arbor connection.
Worth every cent.
Meguiar's Self-CenteringRotaryBufferBackingPlate allows quick and easy pad changes with its Velcro backing system. The patented self-centering system guarantees pad balance, and this plate is designed for use with 8-inch pads and to fit all rotary buffers with a .625-inch diameter shaft.
