    Hi,

    I have a Ryobi 1/4 sheet square sander. I bought it just a week ago.
    The first few days it worked fine but now the sandpaper start sliding
    off sideways almost immediately after I put a new sheet on. I tried
    cleaning it , but nothing seems to help.
    Doe anybody have any suggestions?

    The paper has to be secured under a clamp arrangement when you put it on.
    You doing that?

    Contact the manufacturer. If there is a design fault, you should get
    some kind of fix or suggestion. I have a 1/4 sheet Black and Decker
    palm sander, still going strong after 15 years of use. My Porter
    Cable random orbit sander kept blowing off its dust canister, but
    after contacting Porter Cable, they sent me a new canister (new
    corrected design) that has stayed put. I have a Ryobi belt sander
    that has given good service for over 9 years.

    Yes, it has two clips to hold it. It starts slipping sideways out of
    one of them. Nothing seems wrong with them.
