Product DescriptionThe Rupes BigFoot Claw Pad Tool is a two sided tool that will allow you to clean and separate pads from your backing plate with ease! With technology ever changing and larger throw, more powerful polishers hitting the market each year, the hook and loop backing on pads and backing plates has been getting stronger. This stronger grip helps keep the pads attached and centered onto the backing plate much better than before, however when you want to remove the pads from the backing plate it can be a pain. The BigFoot Claw Pad Tool features an innovative wedge on one end, which is used to create separation between the hook and loop backing on the pad and hook and loop face of the backing plate. This not only allows for easy pad removal, but it greatly reduces the risk for accidental tears and damage to the pad during removal. The other side of the BigFoot Claw Pad Tool features a brush with semi-stiff nylon bristles. These bristles are designed to help you clean your pad safely and easily, no matter if it is still attached to the backing plate or removed and ready for cleaning. This handy tool can fit into a pocket or belt for quick access during a job. If you are looking to extend the life of your polishing pads, pick up the Rupes BigFoot Claw Pad Tool!

Great tool to have. Works to remove pads and a pad brush. I bought this to help remove the pads from my Rupes Bigfoot polishers. The backing plate on my Duetto really holds onto pads which can make it more difficult to remove. The tool helps with that. The packaging it comes in is also nice.

I would describe this tool as gimmicky. Aside from the pad cleaning brush, the other features of this tool are borderline useless. And good luck trying to find any instructions on how to use it. It's surprising to me that Rupes would cheapen its brand by promoting such a useless product.
