Lake Country XC 3401 VRG Backing Plate System

Click image to see larger view

Although the FLEX XC 3401 VRG Positive Drive Orbital Polisher is without any doubt one of the best tools currently on the market for serious paint correction work, it is let down slightly by the non-standard backing plate sizes FLEX have adopted for it. The FLEX XC 3401 VRG Backing Plate supplied with the polisher has a diameter of 140 mm, meaning it accepts most pads with a diameter of 150 mm or more. If you want to use smaller pads, you have the option of using either the 115 mm version of the stock plate, which accepts most pads with a diameter of 125 mm or more, or the Lake Country XC 3401 VRG Backing Plate System (shown on this page), which accepts most pads with a diameter of 100 mm or more.
The Lake Country XC 3401 VRG Backing Plate System is a multi-piece adaptor that enables 100 mm pads to be safely fitted to the FLEX XC 3401 VRG Positive Drive Orbital Polisher. The system comprises two components: (i) a geared base plate (that replaces the stock FLEX backing plate), and; (ii) a 100 mm backing plate with an ultra-fine hook and loop fastening material, which enables the safe use of pads with a hook and loop backing measuring 100 mm or more across (up to a maximum diameter of 140 mm). To use the Lake Country XC 3401 VRG Backing Plate System, you simply replace the stock FLEX backing plate with the supplied geared base plate, and then affix and tighten the supplied 100 mm backing plate.
Fitting instructions: (i) always switch off your machine at the mains before fitting the Lake Country XC 3401 VRG Backing Plate System; (ii) remove the stock FLEX backing plate using the hex key supplied with your machine; (iii) fit the geared base plate, making sure that the slot is seated on the spindle properly; (iv) drop the two large thin washers into the well of the geared base plate (i.e. on top of the slot); (v) fit the 100 mm backing plate on to the geared base plate, making sure that the tabs drop into the slots to give a flush fit; (vi) drop the small thick washer into the well of the 100 mm backing plate; (vii) insert the bolt and nip it up tight using a 6 mm hex key (avoid over tightening it a half turn of the hex key after it first pinches tight is sufficient).
