If you’re using a 4 inch or smaller pad on a rotary buffer, you are probably polishing a small or hard to reach areas. With a small buffing pad, you will need to see exactly where the edge of the pad lies and the Flex Rotary Backing Plate Extension makes this possible. By moving the backing plate and pad away from the base of the buffer, you are more easily able to see the exact touch points of the buffing pad. This ensures you don’t run the pad over a body line while also guaranteeing that every surface of the vehicle that has paint gets polished.
The Flex Rotary Backing Plate Extension also works great with the Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer. When a buffer or polisher is equipped with the Flex Rotary Backing Plate Extension, you gain an extra 2 inches of travel which makes it easier and a more effective way to clean the pads. What this also means is that your hands are a lot less likely to get wet from splatter while using the pad washer.
