Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Coleman Needs better hooks.
The hooks on these are weak. I've tried these many times to replace on my desalt and craftsman orbital sanders and they just don't hold the sanding pads on securely. The sanding pads just fly off. Too bad these are not of better quality, the sanding pads are the best!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Neverendingprojects Fixes worn out hook and loop facing
I bought this to be able to continue using a hook and loop sander that the sandpaper was falling off of because the attachment surface was worn out. It worked great. New parts for my sander were only available online but I didn't want to wait, so this was a good alternative and it's stood up to heavy use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo Conversion Sanding disc
love the product. Sanded down the face of my Dewalt orbital sander and figured I would be stuck with stick on sanding disks, this conversion disk sticks on like a sanding disk but ends up being a new face plate for the five hole or eight hole Velcro pads I normally use. It lasts better then the original.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by QueenAnne1885 line up the holes and go!
We bought both the Ryobi sanding backing pad and this one. I agree with the other review about a lack of directions, but that is to be expected with junk made in China. Just adhere to the existing surface, and you are back in business, so it's not technical. It's better than having your sander out of commission waiting for the sanding backing pad on a holiday.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Durhamite No installation instructions
I bought two of these. Great way to reuse sanding backing pad, BUT no instructions included with the conversion disc.
What is the best way to prepare backing pad for installation of this product? Sand-off the old surface? Just apply to existing surface? Seriously, Diablo!
So I went to the diablo website, no instructions there either.
