Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Evah Piece of garbage
I put it on, seemed like it fit nicely, tightened the screws and got to work. 10 minutes later, the backing plate flew off, the holes for the screws had widened out due to vibration and would no longer hold the plate on. Oh yeah and it left a nice big gouge on my project as well that will be fun to sand out. I thought it was just garbage plastic and obviously it is much cheaper than the original, but reading reviews here, apparently I need to add washers since the new plate has thinner plastic. What garbage! They should include either washers or new screws or at least instructions if the new part is not going to work!!! Anyway, since I want to get this done, I plan to swap with another one and get some washers to fix it, but I'd suggest to others they get a better quality backing plate if such could be found somewhere. $15.00 for a piece of junk plus the hassle of further delays on my project and yet another trip to the store is irritating.

I needed to finally replace my Hook & Loop pad, and the product was a simple swap-out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jtwo Perfect match!
The replacement pad was a PC product and went on the sander perfectly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Habanero Perfect fit for my model 333
The base plate is thinner than the original but works fine. The hooks and pad work as expected. Could not ask for more.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jchot Too shallow, but works fairly well
Make sure that when you install this that you put some washers in there to keep the base away from the body. Otherwise it rubs and will wear out very quickly. The base plate is thinner than the original part, that is what the difference is. If you make this modification, you should be happy with this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TomCB portercable is not what it use to be - - back to Bosch
porter cable sells overpriced this replacement pad BUT its not the same
as the original !! the base is thinner and the original screws
bottom out before a secure connection in made
the pad will be ripped apart in a short time
They should supply the proper screws with the changed part

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Googz exact replacement
An exact fit for my model 333 sander. I bought it and took it home took the old one off and put the new one on. No washers needed as others had stated perfect fit.
