From Ryobi, or you can go the cheaper way and buy a H&L repair kit from
Lowes or similar source. These kits include a sheet of H&L material, a tube
of really tuff glue and instructions. I've replaced pads on several of my
sanders this way and they're holding up as well as the originals did.

I had the same problem. I went to the repair shop in Houston and found
that they'd had a recall some time back with those pads. Not only did
the hook & loop tend to come off, the worse problem was that the pads
tended to disintegrate and sling pieces.
They replaced mine on the spot under the recall. It is a bit smaller
and of tougher material. You might give them a call and see if the
model you have is covered under the recall.
