Video Transcript for Review of Blue Ox Replacement Brake Claw - BRK2512

Hi there, I'm Michael with Today we're gonna take a quick look at this Blue Ox replacement brake claw. This is going to replace the brake claw that came with your Blue Ox Patriot, or Patriot II supplemental braking system. This is gonna be a direct replacement from Blue Ox, so you can trust it is gonna be compatible with your Patriot and Patriot II braking system. This will grab onto your vehicle's brake pedal so that your braking system can effectively depress the pedal. So just like the original, to adjust it you'll pull up on that tab there and then you can press that button to release it.

And then if you want to lock it in place, twist this knob on the side here, and that will lock it. So even if the button is depressed, it won't collapse on you. To release, we'll take it back into that vertical position and then you can push that button and spring loaded functionality will allow it to retract again. You can see they also include these J-hooks here. So, if that is going to fit your application better you can switch these out for these J-hooks so that it will fit onto your both pedal properly.

This is made here in the USA, so you can trust it is made to the high quality standards that we've come to know and trust for products that are made here in the US. But more than anything else because this is a direct replacement from Blue Ox, you can trust that this is gonna work for you to make sure that your braking system will be operational again. So that completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with Thanks for watching..

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (36 Customer Reviews)

Replaces the brake clamp for your Blue Ox Patriot or Patriot II supplemental braking system.


eTrailer came through in a pinch! Great bunch of professionals.


eTrailer always seems to have what I am looking for and at a competitive price (it’s for an RV so never a cheap price-lol). Arrived when promised and followed up to make sure it arrived. 10/10.


It arrived the next day, so we are able to continue are vacation!





Needed a replacement brake claw for my Blue Ox Patriot 3 Braking System. First time buyer and thrilled with how easy ordering was, and purchase arrived quickly, just like they promised.


Rating this product as a 5 is a direct result of owning the previous iteration claw sold on the Patriot four years ago when I bought one. Reaching around the brake assist while manually trying to hold the spring loaded claw open and putting it on the brake pedal with your hand and arm cocked almost backwards...well let's just say this description doesn't begin hint at the frustration. After using my Patriot for 4 years, I can count all the times I hit it on the first shot. This design allows you to cock the device in the open position, slip the claw over the pedal then either shoot it closed with a button on top or just push the device forward engaging a second release on the front snapping it shut. My wife is looking forward to a hookup without the subsequent tirade.

Working as good as the day I bought it. This truly is an example of continuing to re-engineer your products to improve them. Well Done!


We broke one of these last year and were desperate for a replacement. E trailer sent us one overnight and we were good to go. Not only was the service good but the entire Blue Ox system. Has worked flawlessly. What a great experience it was to deal with a company that truly believes in customer service.

Its working GREAT. Not only is it reliable but its easy to hook up


I'm replacing a broken one with a new one. So; I'm not sure if this one is better yet. What I am sure of is that etrailer has been a great place to do business, for years. I keep coming back for excellent service and competitive prices. Thank You.


The Patriot Brake "Claw" upgrade makes installing the unit a breeze. No more getting on the ground to wrangle the pedal attachment on the vehicle's brake pedal. Just open it and place it over the pad and push the button. DONE!!!


We travel full time and are never in one place for very long. I needed a part for my Patriot II brake system and came through. I only had a 5 day window of time to get the part I needed and it arrived on time. Thanks and Kyle D. for the follow up and help.


Product solved the problem I had with the Blue Ox Braking system


The customer service representative helped me determine if this was the right part to replace what was broken on my Patriot 3. It indeed was and it got here quick!


The Blue Ox parts I received we perfect. George and the folks from etrailer know how to look after you right, the first time.


Exactly what I was expecting. Saw the new claw end on a newer model of the brake unit. Found it on-line at etrailer.

Although I received a message that shipping would be delayed, everything arrived much earlier than expected.

Thank you


Product was as described. Etrailer is always a great experience. The product itself is ok. I wish Blue Ox would make it out of metals instead of plastic.


Unfortunately, all i need was the upper fangs for an existing claw when I changed out the tow vehicle to a Jeep with a smaller brake peddle. I couldn't find the original smaller claws and had to order this whole unit. The fangs aren't available individually. Well, now I have a backup.


Changed out the extra larger set of jaws and the brake buddy hooked up toThe f150 brake pedal easily.


Price was great, shipping fast, everything I needed -- as usual from etrailer.


Fits as described and super fast delivery thank you.


Was not delivered as shown, for the price, it should have included the metal adjustment rod as shown on the right

This replacement Brake Claw for the Blue Ox Patriot does come with the threaded fitting that threads into the rod of the brake unit. If you are referring to the extension rod that is needed for brake pedals that are farther away from the seat, you will need part # BRK2502. Not all vehicles will need the extension piece so it doesnt come with the claw.


Great replacement for the original. Much improved design. I had to take my original to a grinder to get it it fit. Looks like realized the errors of their way and redesigned this one


Excellent service. My order was actually filled on the weekend. I got my package earlier than I had hoped.


Very helpful.


Cathy T. was very helpful during the ordering process. Received item in 2 days. Highly recommend etrailer!

  • Replacement Brake Claw for Blue Ox Patriot Braking System
    For your Blue Ox Patriot Braking System referenced in your question, I recommend replacing the claw assembly with # BRK2512. Since the round ball and pin came out of the brake claw, it's possible that some internal components have been damaged on your existing part. This will work perfectly with your system and it will install quickly and easily.

  • Is There A Replacement RF Controller for Blue Ox Patriot BRK2012?
    The only replacement part we have available for the original Blue Ox Patriot (BRK2012) is the Replacement Brake Claw # BRK2512. Unfortunately, this system was discontinued in 2017 and there are no other replacement parts available any longer. You may be able to find a replacement on the second hand market, but that will entail a lot of searching and patience. The best option we have is to upgrade to the newest iteration of Patriot, the # BLU37TR. This is quite a bit more compact than the...

  • Recommended Blue Ox Flat Towing Set-Up for 2015 Chevrolet Colorado
    Our installers really like the Blue Ox flat towing gear for its consistently good fits and reliable performance. And in general if you stick with one brand for your base plates and tow bar you can avoid the complication and expense of the adapters needed when you mix parts from different manufacturers. We offer the Blue Ox base plate kit # BX1721 for your 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. This features easily removable draw bars. With these I recommend the Alpha motor-home-mount tow bar # BX7380...
