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

Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. 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 etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

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.




by:

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


Comments
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
Brake Rod Extension for Blue Ox Patriot Braking Systems
$26.50
. Not all vehicles will need the extension piece so it doesnt come with the claw.

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

Great service




by:

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.




by:

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.


Comments
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!

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




by:

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.


Comments

Easy to use




by:

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




by:

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!!!




by:

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




by:

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




by:

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!




by:

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.




by:

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




by:

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




by:

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




by:

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




by:

Best customer service I have ever had




by:

Exact replacement. Thanks




by:

Great idea. Not always easy to latch o pen


Comments
According to Blue Ox, the trick is to turn the knob only when the tabs are fully pressed in.
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 06/18/2019


by:

Fits just fine in place of the old claw and I think it will help with the struggle to get it over the brake pedal on our Jeep.




by:

Great product, great price.
