Self-adjusting driver's-side electric brake measures 12-1/4" x 5". Brake pads are made of durable friction material for improved braking and longevity. E-coated backing plate resists rust. Dust shield protects from debris.


Features:

  • Electric brakes are easier to install and offer more user control than hydraulic brakes
    • Requires only an electric brake controller (sold separately) - no actuator or hydraulic lines necessary
  • Automotive-grade friction material is molded to brake shoes
    • Pads are fully bonded - not riveted - to shoes for long life and more braking torque
    • Less chance of cracking and crumbling that can lead to mechanical lockup, thanks to tapered edge and circular grinding
  • Self-adjusting brake does not require periodic manual adjustment like standard brakes
    • Fine-tooth brake adjustment gear allows for a more precise setting
  • Dust shield protects from debris while you're towing
  • E-coated backing plate resists wear and corrosion
  • Adjuster plugs (included) cover access holes to keep dirt and grime out of the assembly and off of the shoes
  • Mounting bolts and hardware (BRKH122510) sold separately
  • QAI and CSA certified


Specs:

  • Application: most standard hub-and-drum assemblies, including Dexter and Lippert (LCI)
  • Configuration: left hand (driver's side)
  • Dimensions: 12-1/4" diameter x 5" wide
  • Mounting flange bolt pattern: 7 bolt
  • Wheel size: 15" or larger
  • Axle rating: 12,000 lbs
  • Limited 1-year warranty


Self-Adjusting Brake Doesn't Require Routine Adjustment

Standard electric brake assemblies require manual adjustment of the brake shoes over time to provide longer-lasting and more efficient braking performance. With self-adjusting brakes, the brake shoes are always properly aligned, so there's no need to manually adjust the brakes after the initial adjustment. As a result, you get optimum performance without having to take the time to continually perform this type of maintenance.


Thoroughly Tested for Safety

This brake assembly meets the requirements for certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The CSA creates standards, which when complied with ensure a safe and quality product. This brake assembly underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. This brake has also been tested by QAI for braking performance in a complete automotive setup and under real-world conditions to provide the most realistic scenario for the everyday driver.


Automotive-Grade Friction Material

Each shoe on this brake assembly is lined with automotive-grade friction material for improved stopping performance and longevity. The friction material is fully bonded onto the surface of the brake shoe. This lining is custom-molded for a perfect fit. The edges are tapered to ensure long-lasting performance. This taper, along with the circular grinding that the lining undergoes, helps to prevent cracking and crumbling. This durability helps to prevent mechanical lockup, which can occur when brake shoes are excessively worn or broken.


The friction material is also SAE-N certified, which means that it is an environmentally safe product that complies with California and Washington regulations regarding the composition of brake pads. As a result, this material not only provides high-performance braking that can endure the test of time, but it is also environmentally friendly and safe for use throughout the United States and Canada.

Review from a similar SelfAdjust 12-1/4 Inch 12K in Accessories and Parts


Out of the four kits ordered, I received one brake kit where the corner of the brake shoe was broke off (1inch triangle) and the metal part was bent. I had to have the trailer moving so I just broke the corner off the shoe off and assembled it.

Review from a similar SelfAdjust 12-1/4 Inch 12K in Accessories and Parts


Brakes worked well for the first ten months are so. The only complaint I have with this system are the magnets. Within the last month are so I’ve have to replace two of the magnets due to the wires on them breaking. I just think for the price of this system there should be better wires used.

Review from a similar SelfAdjust 12-1/4 Inch 12K in Accessories and Parts


These brake assemblies where exactly what I was looking for. Because these are an odd size, my local supplier did not have them in stock and would have taken a week to get them and the price would have been double what I paid on etrailer
Thanks again Julie N. for you help processing my order. I got them in 3 days.
