Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tilepainter good sanding disks
These sanding disks fit my DeWalt random-orbital just right - the holes lined right up. The actual grit material is not specified except as "premium ceramic blend". That's probably aluminum oxide, the stuff that almost all regular sandpaper is made of, suitable for wood and materials other than glass and hard steel. It works well, and the velcro backing grabs onto any other velcro. The pad stuck to my little triangular palm sander, but the holes don't line up. But it works well by pulling it off and rotating it from time to time. How long it lasts depends on what you are sanding: pine - a long time, maple - not as long, steel - a couple of minutes, glass - a couple of seconds. I have always gotten good use out of Diablo sanding discs and belts. Diablo red is a sure sign of quality.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JJH1989 A Universal fit that is "really" Universal
I used the first of the sanding disks on an ongoing project at my residence. The 120 grit disk held up to some extended use. I am using the disk on a Craftsman 5" 8 hole orbital sander and the only problem I have found , so far, is that the edges appear to wear faster than the center and lose the grit. I would recommend this product not only to the DIY'er but to the professional as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by goodreason Nice Product
Always liked their saw blades, so when the opportunity arose to try their sanding disks who could say no. The one in this test is the 120 grit. Applying the disk to the sander was easy enough, lined the holes and started sanding. Once the sanding started the disk didn't slip or move. The sanding was flawless as depicted in the picture. Removal of the disk at the beginning was somewhat difficult because of the “Hook and Lock” system, but once you're able to start ripping it off it became easier without any damage because of the flexible makeup of the disk.

If you just want to do some light works it is fine with the price. But not for heavy duty works.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by msd Quality sand paper for your orbital sander
Diablo 120 grit sand paper is a fine hook and lock backed paper. The 120 grit gets you almost ready to stain wood, and this particular paper lasts quite a long time. I do believe the holes assist this paper in keeping itself clean during the work, so that is probably why it lasts long. the actual grit does not come off, like some papers do. The hook and lock backing is now my favorite type of paper mounting. It is almost indestructible, and when used in a dirty environment, does not fail to hold the paper on your sander. If I could retrofit some of my older sanders with the hook and lock mating surface, I would do that immediately. Great paper here!

I use these with my DeWalt random orbital sander. They attach quite firmly to the hook-and-eye material on my sander. A couple of the sets of holes align quite nicely, and when hooked up to my shop vac, practically no dust makes it into the air. The paper is very efficient for sanding wood, and seems quite durable. Overall, these are an excellent purchase and I plan to continue to use Diablo's sanding products for the foreseeable future.

The Diablo 5" 120 grit universal hole random orbital sanding disc with hook and lock backing are great. They have worked perfect with all my project I have never had any problems with them. Works on materials wood, metal and plastics. The grit-to-backing bond for extreme durability never had a problem with them coming off. One-size-fits-all design.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheOne Diablo 5 in. 120-Grit Universal Hole Random Orbital Sanding Disc with Hook and Lock Backing (4-Pack)
In passed and now, I have been using (many times) Diablo sanding discs. I always ware pleased by its working performance and finished end results. I specially like the Hook & Lock design of it. You don not have to spend time and effort to install the discs. All you have to do hook & lock and attention to the job you are doing! Finish job always looks good and done right, ready for paint or next step(s)!! I do recommend this sanding disc for any orbital sanding jobs. Abrasive made in Switzerland and shaped in USA.
