    3M™ Hookit™ Short Air File Shoe
    A File Shoe for Faster, More Efficient Air File Sanding
    It upgrades your sanding capabilities in so many ways — our 3M™ Hookit™ Short Air File Shoe is a simple, effective tool for "short" (11") air file sanders with dust evacuation systems. This durable straight line file shoe is sized to fit a full range of common air file sanders in collision repair. It features a hole configuration that works with your dust vacuum system to help clear dust away from the abrasive surface during sanding. With this added escape route, more dust moves away from the finishing surface without loading the sheet for a more consistent finish and longer abrasive life. And the Hookit™ hook-and-loop surface on the file shoe lets you instantly install our Hookit™ attachment system to your air file sander for fast, easy sheet changeouts without tools.

    About Our Hookit™ Attachment System
    The Hookit™ hook-and-loop feature makes for fast and easy attachment, removal and re-attachment of Hookit™ abrasive sheets and facilitates use and re-use of individual sheets for high material cost efficiency. The facing surface on the Hookit™ Short Air File Shoe has J-shaped hooks that instantly grip the brushed nylon loops on our Hookit™ abrasives. It’s simple: just slap the sheet on and start sanding. Sheets remove just as cleanly and easily, and can be re-used again and again for the extent of the abrasive life. The Hookit™ system is designed for work spaces where adhesive backed sheets may become contaminated by dust, dirt, or flying debris.

    Better Science for Better Sanding from 3M
    Small, simple and full of features that save time and money, our file shoes are excellent examples of how a single tool can deliver big advantages across a wide range of sanding applications in collision repair. With its easy attachment to common sanders, dust evacuation feature and quick Hookit™ attachment, the 3M™ Hookit™ Short Air File Shoe is another way that 3M applies science to the lives of auto repair technicians, consistently improving your efficiency, throughput and value.
