The 3” backing plate is ideal for small and hard-to-reach areas, while the 5” backing plate is a versatile workhorse that strikes a perfect balance of coverage and focused cutting power.

Insert the DA polisher wrench between the counterweight housing and the backing plate, then hold the spindle with the wrench and unscrew the backing plate by hand.

Next, line up the backing plate spindle thread and screw directly into the DA spindle (ensure the included washer stays in place around the backing plate threads). Continue counter-holding the DA spindle with the wrench and then screw the backing plate in tightly by hand.

Test the fitment by turning the machine by hand and make any necessary adjustments if the machine binds up.
