Video Transcript for Review of Demco Brake Actuator Parts - Replacement Break Away Cable and Lever - 5401

Ellen: Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here at and we're going to be taking a look at the replacement breakaway switch for your demco brake actuator. So a lot of times this is an easy part to kind of snap off, If you forget to unhook your breakaway switch from your truck, whenever you're done towing its pretty easy thing to break. So this is going to be a direct replacement from demco to get that replaced and get you back to functional with your brake actuator. So you can see that we'll have all our parts here, the only thing that it doesn't come with is the hardware to mount the plate in place of that two plate designs ,that's kind of what provides the tension for our pivot lever. That's going to slide in here and then go into the brake actuator to kind of flip the switch and provide us with that brake function in the event of an accidental disconnect.We also get the hardware to attach this to the lever. So we'll get our bolt and lock nut, and then of course our safety pin or our safety hook here so just attach this to your towed vehicle and it takes you down the road.

The cable measures 41 inches long, this fits several different models of the demco brake actuator, that's going to be the DA10, the DA20 and the DA91. That's pretty much all there is to it for our look at the demco actuator replacement kit. I hope this video has been helpful again, I'm Ellen here at Thanks for watching..

Excellent easy to use website with reasonable prices. I was able to find all the components to rebuild the surge brakes, controller and towing features using Will be using them for my future trailer repair needs as well. Thank you for great prompt shipping.


I have ordered trailer parts a couple of times and I have received them on the delivery date or a day early. The package is in good condition and my parts are always correct as I ordered.

They are still working good. The only problem is our guys continue to drive off with out disconnecting the brake away cable. The replacement part kit is the perfect replacement.
