The unique free-backing design, patented by DICO, lets your trailer move in reverse without actuating the brakes. When you begin backing up, the brake shoes are firm against the drum, as in a braking situation. As you continue in reverse, however, the shoes turn with the drum until the lining pressure is released and you are able to back up freely.

These brakes are designed to eliminate friction between the shoes and drum when you are driving in reverse. A trailer breakaway kit will not be effective should your trailer disconnect from your tow vehicle when backing up.

Video Transcript for Titan Trailer Brakes T4423500 Review

Today we are going to review part number T4423500. This is the ten-inch Titan Alpha right free backing hydraulic trailer brake assembly for the left hand side. This is drum brake assembly, which will provide superior protection from corrosion and it will let you reverse without actuating because of the free backing. This is designed for use with hydraulic brake actuators that do not include reverse lockouts. This will fit most 13-inch, 14-inch and 15-inch wheels. This assembly does have alpha right plating, which deliver superior corrosion protection.

The backing plate in the shoe levers are sealed with a permanently bonded electric coated primer and theres a second coat of rugged acrylic thats applied to the backing plate, which makes it nearly rust proof. The wheel, I hear are treated with a hot black oxide. The internal components are zinc plated and it uses stainless steel springs. I mentioned this is a free backing design and what that does, that will allow you to reverse the trailer without the brakes being activated and the easy way to tell if its a free backing design is usually the smaller shoe will have a D design to it and this is the left hand brake assembly which is the driver side assembly and the way you can tell that is the smaller shoe will always be towards the front of the trailer. And the larger shoe will be towards the rear of the trailer.

The way to measure this its a ten inch by 2-1/4 inch brake assembly. The diameter of the brakes would be ten inches and the width of the shoe will be 2-1/4. This does, the center hole diameter is three inches. This does use the four-hole mounting flange bolt pattern and the distance between the holes 2-7/8 inches in both ways. This brake assembly when mated with the right hand side will give you a capacity up to 3,750 pounds for the pair.

This does come with a one-year warranty a two-year corrosion warranty. And briefly again just to mention about the free backing system, what that does is that it will let your trailer move in reverse without actuating the brakes. What happens is when you begin backing up, the brake shoes are firmly against the drum as in any braking situation. As you continue in reverse however, the shoes will turn with the drum until the lining pressure is released and you are be able to back freely and that should do it for part number T4423500.

I purchased a StarCraft Islander and couple years ago and the hydraulic surge brakes on the trailer never worked. Needing to get the brakes working I inspected what I had and what the problems were. The springs were rusted, with some broken, the wheel cylinders were seized and the pads looked to be in rough shape. I ordered the left and right Titan Galphorite Free-Backing Hydraulic Trailer Brake Assembly from etrailer and just a few short days later they were on my door step. Installation was a breeze and afterwards I have great working trailer brakes again. Etrailer is the only way to go. Shipping is fast and their prices are very good. 270385

Brake installation and bleeding process was easy. I had never performed a brake install before. Happy with the coating on all the parts as this is a boat trailer. Free wheel backing seems to be working well. Old brake solenoid had evidently seized up so this was a good fix but also an upgrade with coating and free wheel backing. 229950

by:

Backing plates and bearings were perfect match. For the price, it is well worth purchasing the assembly as all you have to do it bolt it on.... Not sure why there was a bolt and locking nut (loose) through the front brake pad flange onto the post flange, maybe for shipping, but it is not necessary and a pain in the butt to remove with the springs installed. If it is there for shipping purposes, then maybe use a zip tie or something easier to remove. 194590

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Replacement Brake Assembly Recommendation for a Dico 15638 Assembly
  • Your Dico brake assemblies are 10 inch by 2-1/4 inch so the part # T4423400 and # T4423500 would both work as replacements. There is quite a bit of overlap between Titan and Dico parts.

  • Recommendation for Corrosion Resistant 10 x 2-1/4 Hydraulic Trailer Brake Assemblies
  • The hydraulic drum brakes that are good for marine applications are going to be the galvanized models like # 40716 as an example. Others, like the Galphorite coated assemblies, like # T4423400, also offer excellent corrosion resistance. Any assembly that does not have a special coating and/or is not galvanized then that would indicated it is powder coated steel, like # 23-312, and is not ideal for marine applications. If you are looking for 10 x 2-1/4 assemblies for marine applications,...

  • Available 6K Weld-On A-Frame Drum Brake Actuators
  • Thank you for the photo of your trailer tongue and actuator coupler. The one weld-on 6K drum brake actuator we offer is the Titan Multi-fit A-Frame Actuator # T2492800. This accepts 1-7/8-inch, 2-inch and 50mm hitch balls and includes a breakaway kit. It will fit 50-degree a-frame trailers. Note that this coupler does not include a reverse lockout so it best paired with free-backing brakes like # T4423400 and # T4423500. All 6K drum brake actuators for 2-inch balls are shown on the...

  • Replacement Brake Assembly Recommendation for 1997 MasterCraft 20 ft Boat
  • Since your trailer has 10 inch by 2-1/4 inch brake assemblies currently all of the assemblies you mentioned are going to work. I would go with the sefl-adjusting part numbers # DMSB24428M and # DMSB24429M though since you mentioned you were interested in that option. The matching Titan assemblies are part # T4423500 for the left hand side and part # T4423400 for the right hand side. Based on the seal dimensions you listed the part # 168233 is the correct replacement. We don't...

  • Do Hydraulic Free Backing Trailer Brakes Resist Being Reversed
  • Sounds like you are fine. Free backing plates will resist backing up for a second but then they release and allow the wheels to turn. If you are trying to turn things by hand with the trailer in the air that's why things seem more difficult. 5 clicks back from lock up by hand should be about right. It should feel like there's a noticeable drag as you turn them by hand but they should still be able to spin.

  • How Does the Titan 5 on 4-1/2 Inch Complete Hub and Drum Assembly Install on a Trailer
  • You would not bolt this Titan 5 on 4-1/2 Complete Hub-and-Drum Assembly # T1544600042 to a four bolt mounting flange. You would bolt brake assemblies like the Titan Galphorite Free-Backing Hydraulic Trailer Brake Assembly Right Hand # T4423400 and the left hand version # T4423500 to a four bolt mounting flange. The # T1544600042 that you referenced will ride on to the spindle of your trailer and will spin with the wheel assembly. It will be held to the brake assemblies that will remain...

  • Left and Right Hand Side Dexter 3,500 lb Galphorite Hydraulic Titan Brake Assembly Recommendation
  • For the matching set you would want the part # T4423500 for the left hand side and part # T4423400 for the right hand side. The part number # T4445300 is being phased out, but the two I mentioned are the replacements for it. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Replacing Hydraulic Brakes With Electric Drum Brakes On Trailer
  • I have attached a link to a helpful article that explains what is needed to add electric drum brakes to a trailer. Your Dico brake assemblies are 10 inch by 2-1/4 inch so the part # T4423400 and # T4423500 would both work as replacements. The best way to make sure you get the right components is to pull the hub and get the bearings numbers from the side of the bearings as shown in the attached photo. If you cannot find the numbers on the bearings, I recommend using a digital caliper...

  • Can Tandem Axle Trailer Have Electric And Hydraulic Brakes With Weight Distribution
  • The first thing I recommend is to address the issues you are having with the electric brakes you have on your trailer currently. If you install hydraulic brakes on one axle, the problem may still be present with the electric brakes and could cause further issues if not corrected. If you wish to send more information about the problems you are having with your system we may be able to resolve the issues you are having. Adding a hydraulic coupler could affect where the weight distribution...

  • Can Free-Backing Trailer Brakes be Used on a Trailer with a Reverse Lock Out
  • Free backing brake assemblies can be used on a trailer that has a reverse lockout. If it's a manual lockout they would allow you to back your trailer up at any given moment without having to get out and activate the lockout. As long as your hub/drums are 10 by 2-1/4 the part # T4423400 for the right hand side and part # T4423500 for the left hand side would be a great choice.

  • Titan Brake Assembly Free Back or Universal Difference and Installation, Hardware and Flanges
  • The difference between the Titan Galphorite Uni-Servo Hydraulic Trailer Brake Assembly part # T4445300, and the Titan Galphorite Free-Backing Hydraulic Trailer Brake Assembly part # T4423500, is that that part # T4423500 is a Free-Backing brake assembly. It will not apply brake pressure when the trailer is in reverse. So which brake assembly to choose is your choice on whether you want to have brakes on the trailer while in reverse, the part # T4445400, will allow you to have brakes in...

  • Can Titan Free-Baking Trailer Drum Brakes Be Used with Brake Actuating Couplers with Reverse Lockout
  • You can use Titan Galphorite Free-Backing Hydraulic Trailer Brake Assembly, # T4423400, with a brake actuating coupler with reverse lockout provided the actuator is designed for use with drum brakes. You will be able to back up whether the reverse lockout is engaged or not because hydraulic pressure is contained by the wheel cylinder nullifying the lockout. Basically, what will happen is when you start backing up, the brakes will grab a little and then with continued backward motion...

This is the right hand side assembly. The left hand side is # T4423500. I have included a link to the installation details for you to view.
