Our 3M™ Hookit™ Orbital Air File Shoe allows you to use 3M abrasive sheets with a full range of orbital air file sanders. It features a hole configuration that helps channel dust away from the sheet surface for longer abrasive life. This file shoe also lets you instantly upgrade to our Hookit™ hook-and-loop attachment system for quick, easy changeouts when using Hookit™ abrasive sheets.
A File Shoe for Faster, More Efficient Orbital Air File Sanding,/strong>
A simple and effective tool to extend your air file sanding capabilities, our 3M™ Hookit™ Orbital Air File Shoe attaches quickly and easily to a full range of orbital air file sanders with dust evacuation systems. This durable orbital file shoe features a hole configuration that works with your dust vacuum system to help clear dust away from the abrasive surface during sanding in collision repair. 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 orbital 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™ Orbital 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<./strong>
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 orbital sanders, dust evacuation feature and quick Hookit™ attachment, the 3M™ Hookit™ Orbital File Shoe is another way that 3M applies science to the lives of auto repair technicians, consistently improving your efficiency, throughput and value.
