Advance fm810 xp orbital sander

Anyone have any tips on keeping the black stripping pad to stay on the machine? I have been told you have to keep the red pad on to protect the base (though was told that about only the brown sanding pads and discovered the same applies for the black by accident lol). However the black pad doesn't stay on, it just spins making edging quite impossible. I don't have an issue with the brown sanding and floor prep pads doing it just the black. I am trying to find info online and not coming up with anything. I suspect that there might be a different base pad needed for the black. Thanks in advance.

We always suggest our thin white driver pad for use with a stiff harsh black stripping pad. Stripping pads have a large amount of abrasive made into them that causes the strip finish well but they also tend to destroy the grip face on the bottom of machines. Using some type of backer pad will help extend the life of your grip face.
