Video Transcript for Performance Tool Trailer Brakes W80630 Review

Today, we're going to take a look at the Performance Tools universal offset brake adjustment spoon. This tool is for adjusting drum brakes, has the angles blades, one on each end for confined areas. This will adjust the star adjuster and the screw adjuster type brakes very quickly and easily. It's made of a drop forged steel and has a chrome plating to it to help resist corrosion. I just want to try to show you what it's used for. Here's a typical drum brake that has the star adjuster right at the bottom, so on the very back you will access to adjust that through the access hole right here. This tool is made to be able to go through that access hole and reach that adjustment gear and adjust your brakes.

Depending on how much clearance you have, you might have to use the 90 degree angle. It's part of this smaller angle one. That should do it for the review on the Performance Tools universal offset brake adjustment spoon.

I'm overhauling a 20 year old boat trailer and etrailer.com was the ONE and ONLY site on the internet that had both the necessary parts for this old trailer, but also instructional videos and hints on what to order and how to complete the job with a minimum amount of mistakes. This particular order (2 hyd. brake assemblies, hardware and brake tool) qualified for free shipping, but I didn't expect the above average delivery time also (2 days). I'm not finished with this project, but am sure I'll be doing more business with etrailer. Thanks for the great website and exceptional service. 449347

I’m very happy with everything I purchased from etrailer. Everything was correct and fit perfectly. I’m very impressed with the service and their professionalism and knowledge of what they sell. I will definitely be ordering from them again. 565390

An economy brake spoon. Since I only needed it for the initial adjustment of my self-adjusting brakes, I'll probably never use it again; however, it was easy to use and did the job I bought it for without any problems. The only reason it is not rated a five is that for professional, daily use, (admittedly, not advertised as professional) it could have been made of a higher grade steel. It suited my needs completely. 509558

So Disappointed!! This is a review of my order experience, not the product. I needed to replace the brake assemblies on my camper before we could go on vacation. I call to see how long it would take to receive and was told 2 days. I placed the order and received as told. I was about to be impressed until I opened the box. They not only sent the wrong brand, but also the wrong size. I called customer service and had to wait 45 minutes for someone answer. She agreed it was their mistake. I told her I only had two more days to get them on and still go on vacation. I asked for next day delivery. She was able to do that, but said it would ship that day and go 2nd day. The next day, the order had not shipped and the tracking number I was given doesn't even register on UPS. I don't when or if I will receive the correct product. Very disappointed that they would not step up and make it right. 403908

The only reason I do not give you 5 stars is because your web site. When internet ordering, it should instantly state when a part is out of stock. Even nicer would be expected restocking dates. The parts received were exactly what I ordered for my electric brake conversion from surge brakes at far less expense than reparing the internally rusted surge brake system. There was a plethora of information on your web site to assist me in ordering the correct parts for the conversion. Plus there were videos to see how to complete the conversion and how parts were installed and adjusted. Customer service was excellent. 659638

I was initially concerned about finding the right parts as the trailer was fairly old. etrailer had just what I needed. The website is so elegant. I was able to find the right parts quickly and with comparative options to make a final selection. The how-to videos are great. This made installation a little more comfortable. Especially when you do not perform this type of work every day. The parts were of high quality and are working as expected. I highly recommend etrailer for any of your trailer needs. 545357

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Do Self-Adjusting Trailer Brakes Adjust Going Forward or in Reverse
  • Actually, it is recommended to make the very first brake adjustment manually on self-adjusting trailer brakes such as # AKEBRK-35-SA. This is so the brakes are ready to go without having to wait for them to adjust out while you drive (forward or reverse). Basically there is a device on the adjustment wheel on these brakes that prevents the shoes from adjusting back inward. You have to sort of move that out of the way to be able to turn the adjustment star wheel easier. The video I have...

  • Brake Assemblies Compatible With Dexter 12,000 lb Axles
  • Yes, the Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # AKEBRK-12R for the right hand and # AKEBRK-12L For the left had are confirmed to fit your Dexter 12K Axles. They are comparable to the Dexter Assemblies # 23-442 and # 23-443. You may also be interested in the Brake Adjustment Spoon for Drum Brakes # W80630 to adjust your brake assemblies.

  • Electric Brake Assemblies For Dexter 6000 lb Axles With 12x2 Inch Drums
  • The brakes you are looking for are a standard size, so rather than getting the shoes and magnets for your older design, I recommend upgrading your system. I recommend the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 5.2K to 7K # AKEBRK-7-SA. These are really well made assemblies. The brake pad material is actually cut instead of scored and broken like other assemblies, so you get a better quality pad. If you want the current Dexter assembly...

  • How to Find Replacement Drum Brake Assembly for Boat Trailer
  • I can tell you exactly how to find compatible drum brake assemblies, though I took a look and could not find any type of reference to Dico 40511. To determine the brake assemblies that will fit your 2002 Escort boat trailer, you need to know your axle's weight capacity, your mounting flange bolt pattern and the inside diameter and depth of your drum. For example, Hydraulic Brake Kit # AKFBBRK-35-D are rated for 3,500 lb axles, have a 4-bolt mounting flange pattern and measure 10"...

  • Are Certain 12 Inch Brake Assemblies Interchangeable?
  • The brake assemblies you referenced are the same except the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-458-459 are self-adjusting while the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-105-106 require manual adjustment with a part such as # W80630. Please note that brake assemblies should only be chosen in part by the weight capacity of your axle. They also need to fit with your correct hub size, mounting flange bolt pattern and wheel size. Each of these assemblies work with 6,000...

  • I reached out the the manufacturer and found that they have two possible axles that meet that criteria. One is definitely more likely your application than the other, but I will give you both brake assembly options. For a 3500 lb axle, you will want the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # AKEBRK-35-SA. This will give you both the left and right assemblies. There is a sticker to help you with which assembly fits which side....

  • Replacement Electric Trailer Brakes for a 2010 Montana 3400RL Hickory
  • Before you replace anything try adjusting the brakes, if you haven't already. I've attached an article and a video on adjusting brakes. In the video skip ahead to about the 4:35 mark to see the adjusting. It can be easier using an Adjustment Spoon # W80630. If you do need replacement brakes my guess is that you'll need 12 inch assemblies, based on the size of your trailer. However, you'll want to measure to make sure. Measure the insides of your drums like is shown in the attached...

Based on the Dexter 8-247 number you gave we know you have a 3,500 lb Dexter 10" Hub and Drum Assembly such as part # 84546UC3.

  • Recommend Electric Drum Brakes For A 7,000 Lb. Axle
  • I have a few options for you to consider when replacing the electric drum brakes on 7,000 lb. axle. You can choose from a self-adjusting or manual adjusting assembly. The self-adjusting drum brakes like the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-7-SA have an integrated mechanism that will automatically move the adjuster screw outward as the shoes begin to wear. This will ensure you are receiving the maximum performance and wear life from your brakes. The second option you have is...

  • Potential Causes for Trailer Hub to Heat Up
  • So long as a hub uses the correct bearings that match the dimensions of the spindle that is on the axle there is no worry about using two different brands of products, such as a Dexter hub on a Lippert axle. That in itself is not a concern. When a hub heats up it is usually from either inadequate lubrication or a castle nut that is too tight; you confirmed that neither of these applies in your situation. If the trailer is overloaded with more weight on each hub than they are rated...

  • How to Adjust Drum Brake Pad Pressure Using Brake Spoon Tool
  • If you have not already done so you can adjust the brake pad pressure star wheel to increase the pad pressure on the hub surface. This will increase your braking force. Since it sounds like all the brakes are behaving in the same way (and have the same modest wear) this is most likely the issue. You can use the brake spoon adjustment tool # W80630 or a flat blade screwdriver to rotate the star wheel upward (as viewed from the rear of the brake, where the adjustment slot is). Please refer...

  • Yes you can adjust the drum brakes on your trailer. To see how to manually adjust trailer brake assemblies check out the video I attached, fast-forward to the 4:35 mark of the video.

  • I spoke to my contact at Reese about the problem you are having with your Reese 20K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # RP30083. They informed that in most cases when you are feeling the trailer jerking back and forth when you make a stop, it has to do with a disconnect between the brakes on the trailer and brakes on the tow vehicle. The best way to combat this issue would be to use a proportional brake controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90195 if you are...

  • Tool for Adjusting Drum Brakes on Drop Axle
  • A drop axle certainly can make it tough to reach the star wheel adjuster on a drum brake. The adjuster spoon tool we offer # W80630 has a 90-degree bend that will often let you get access to the adjuster even on a drop axle. Essentially you will need this item or something similar with a sharp bend that allows fitting it into the brake backing plate.

You can potentially remove your hub to make loosening the brake a bit easier but I recommend trying to adjust them from the access holes first.

  • Does It Make A Difference If Brake Assemblies Are Installed On The Wrong Side?
  • The sides do matter on brake assemblies, but are not side specific on hubs. The # AKEBRK-7-SA comes with both the left and right hand assemblies, and there should be stickers to decipher them. If the stickers aren't present, the shorter pad on the brake shoe of each assembly should be facing the front of the trailer. If you need to decipher left side from right side, the driver's side is the left side. The reason why the brakes are side specific is that the brake magnet is designed...

Even if your brake controller is set to the highest setting, if your brakes are not adjusted properly then they will not perform correctly.

However, we sell the Dexter brake kit # K23-463-00, so we can confirm the brakes are not self-adjusting. If you would like to install self-adjusting brakes, you'll have to adjust them once during the initial install, but after that, they will self-adjust.

The brake assemblies I recommend to match the hubs are the Electric Trailer Brake with Dust Shield - Self-Adjusting - 12-1/4" - Left Hand - 8,000 lbs # AKEBRK-8L and # AKEBRK-8R for the right hand side.
