This is a genuine KitchenAid stand mixer replacement Trim Band for the 6 Quart mixers. The trim band is for the Professional 600 series and wraps around the head of the mixer.
The trim band wraps around the head of the mixer, has "KitchenAid Professional 600" on the front, and on the left side has the speed selector label (stir, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10) and "6 QT 575 W". The right side has KitchenAid's contact information. The Trim Band does not list the model number on the trim band but should only be used with the KP26M1 and 4KP26M1 models.
The 9708371 Trim band will come with a protective blue tape on it to protect from scratches until installed on the machine, also the band is bowed in the middle section, this is by design so it will fit snugly around the head of the KitchenAid mixer.
