FM12EL Upper Tape Plate
Fits Better Pack models BP333, BP500, BP555S and L series, BP554, and BP556. Upper tape plate holds the tape in place between the feed wheel and the cutting blade.
Make sure the plate does not get bent. A bent plate will pinch the tape and cause the tape to jam. If the tape plate is missing the tape will buck up between the feed wheel and the blade.
Avoid substituting this FM12EL plate in the BP555eS & BP555eSA. The 555e series does have a lower tape plate with similar stubs that this upper tape plate can mount into, but this pinches the tape and causes jamming. For the BP555eS & BP555eSA, use part E555-018-00.
