Answer: 
It's basically a velcro attachment where the Velcro from on the sander attaches (hooks and loops) to the sanding discs.

Answer: 
I use my sander on drywall and it works very well but be sure to connect it to a shop vac. Even with a shop vac there will be a lot of dust going into the air.
I wear a dust mask and if possible I set up a fan to blow the airborne dust out the window.

Answer: 
Hi sjmitch02,
This sander will work fine for drywall, however you will need to clean it thoroughly after use as the fine drywall power will build up in the sanders dust collection system.
Use compressed air to clean out the sander.

Answer: 
Hook and Loop is a Velcro like material. The sander pad has the "hooks" and the sandpaper disk has a felt like material on the back which are the "loops".
System is simple and you just stick the sandpaper disk onto the sander pad and peel it off when you want to change to a new sandpaper disk.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WORST DeWalt tool Ever!!!! The DWE6421K Random Orbit Sander is by far the worst DeWalt tool we have ever purchased. The hook and loop Pad Assembly (N329079) has poor quality and too few hooks per sq. in. to adequately hold professional 36 grit sanding discs from either Mirka or SIA for more than 8.5 minutes of use. We tried replacing the Pad Assembly, in the hopes that we simply received a defective pad but the replacement was just as bad. By comparison, the higher quality and greater density hook pads (151281-08) of the discontinued D26541 or DW421 Random Orbital Sanders both hold the aforementioned sanding discs for over 1.5 hours before they lose adhesion or simply wear out. It is EXTREMELY disappointing that DeWalt has allowed this lemon to infiltrate its otherwise sterling product line and tarnish what was up until now, a stellar reputation. DO NOT BUY THIS TOOL. FYI - We are remodeling contractors who have used over $20,000 worth of DeWalt tools in the last 20 years. We have an extremely high opinion of them and have and would recommend their line to other contractors or serious DIY'ers. Except for this LEMON! May 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smooth sander From the conveniently placed 'on/off' switch to the streamlined handhold, this economical sander is durable and comfortable to handle. The sand dust bag actually seems to get most of the dust and the cord is ample for maneuverability September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Sander Plenty of power and easy to use; storage bag provides place to hold sand paper August 2, 2016
