- Brand: ALI-GATOR-GRIT | Category: Other
I’m on my 2nd Dewalt random orbital sander …
As anyone who uses hook and loop sanders know, if the sand paper ever comes off while working ,the Velcro pad on the sander gets messed up real quick . Sandpaper will never stick right again.
I’ve gone thru the process of replacing the factory replacement part four times. Three times on the oldest sander and one time on my newer piece, Not cheap.
I found Ali-Gator-grit repair kit for 11 bucks at Lowes. It comes with two Velcro replacement pads and some glue.
I bought it figuring the factory part would eventually give out … About a year later it did.
My experience is the Velco in the Ali-Gator-grit kit much, much stronger, have never had a sheet of sand paper come off and still holding very well after over a year of abuse. Much better then the original equipment.
ordered another set today. 7/26/20104 finally used up the original kit. found this online for 5 bucks shipping
