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.

Video Transcript for etrailer Trailer Brakes AKEBRK-12R Review

Today we're going to take a look at the 12 and a 1/4 inch by 5-inch Self-Adjusting Electric Brake Assembly with the dust shield for 12,000 pound axle. This one is a right-hand passenger side assembly. Now the electric brakes, they're easier to install. They offer more user control than hydraulic brakes. Basically, they just require an electric brake controller. We do sell those separately on our website so there's no actuator hydraulic lines necessary with electric brakes.

This size on this is 12 and a 1/4 by 5. It's a passenger side brake assembly so right hand side but on the dimension, when they say 12 and a 1/4 by 5, what they're measuring 12 and a 1/4 would be from this pad to this pad so the diameter. The 5-inch would be the width of the brake pad itself. If we take a ruler and we go edge to edge, you can 12 and a 1/4 for the diameter, and let's turn it. If we measure the pad itself, you can right at 5 inches, so 12 and a 1/4 by 5.

This is a right hand passenger side assembly. Now when you get a new brake assembly, there's usually a sticker on here that will tell you if it's right hand or left hand but by chance if you don't have a sticker on there, and you want to find out what side it goes on, the best way to do that is just look at the size of the pad. If you look at here, you can see where the pad goes from here all the way up here and then on this one it goes from here to here so this is a shorter pad. This is a longer pad so basically the shorter pad which is the primary shoe, that would always face the front of the trailer so that's why you'll see this is the passenger side or right hand side assembly. That's the easiest way to tell what side it goes on. These brake shoes are lined with an automotive grade friction material. This friction material is fully bonded.

It's not riveted to the shoes. It gives you longer life, more braking torque. The other nice thing is on the pads and the linings themselves, a lot of brake pads will just cut off right there, and have a sharp edge to it. What they do is actually tamper it here and down here and then they do a circular grinding of the pad to prevent cracking and crumbling that can lead to mechanical lockup. These are self-adjustable brakes. You can see the cable that runs downs here and goes to a little lever that'll operate the star wheel to adjust it as you go so they do not require periodic manual adjusting, like standard brakes.

Once you've installed and you just do an initial adjustment and then it will self-adjust from there. The other nice thing is the gear they use on this. It's a fine tuned brake adjustment gear so it does allow more precise setting. There is no brake inaudible 00:02:28 following that initial adjustment. The backing plate right here, it's a cast 00:02:32 backing plate and then they have a metal dust shield, let me spin it around here. You can see here's the metal dust shield. This will help protect the brakes from any debris while towing. If you will also notice at the very bottom, there's two adjuster plugs. These plastic plugs that pop in here and those plugs are . if you . When you go to adjust yours, you just pop one of those out and you can put your tool through there and it'll go through to adjust the star wheel if needed. Once you're done adjusting, you put those plugs back in and you really want to do that because it'll keep dirt from getting into your brake assembly and it's a nice feature on this but some brake assemblies will not put adjuster plugs. They'll just leave those holes open. As you can see, it's designed to fit a 7-bolt brake mounting flange. The mounting bolts, the nuts, the lack 00:03:17 washers, they're all sold separately on our website. This brake assembly is certified by USSAE standards and CSA which is the Canadian standards. Again, the dimensions on it is 12 and a 1/4 by 5 inches. Fits a 12,000 pound axle. They are self-adjusting brakes and they are designed to work with 12 and a 1/4 inch brake drums. This are electric brakes so you have to supply power to this magnet for them to work correctly and if you look at the back, you'll see the two wires coming out here, it's two yellow wires. What you need to do is connect those one to the brake feed, one to a ground, and you can connect either wire . can be used for either function so it doesn't matter which ones which. Once that's all connected, then you have power supplied to your brakes. That should do it for the review on the 12 and a 1/4 inch by 5 inch Self-Adjusting Electric Brake Assembly with the dust shield for 12,000 pound axle and this is a right-hand passenger side assembly.

  • Comparison of Dexter Axle and Axle Technology 12,000 Pound Brake Assemblies
  • Dexter Axle has the brand recognition so that will definitely weigh more in their favor. Axle Technology isn't as well known even though their parts are very common on trailers but they're mostly used buy trailer manufacturers. So their parts often come on trailers but aren't as commonly used when someone is buying replacement parts. The Axle Technology brakes, like # AKEBRK-12R for the right and # AKEBRK-12L for the left, are good quality brakes and some of our installers here even...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer with One Hub That Locks Up Even with Low Power on Brake Controller
  • On a trailer as large and heavy as a tandem-axle 40-footer you really do want all four hubs delivering braking force. Wheel bearing grease, or oil from an oil-bath type hub, can certainly damage drum brakes. Usually such leakage will cause reduction in braking power because the grease/oil reduces the pad-to-drum friction that provides the braking force. Grease- or oil-contaminated brake assemblies do need to be replaced; it is not really possible to clean them out properly if they actually...

  • Can Electric Drum Brakes Be Used on a Boat Trailer
  • You ask a very good question. In recent years we've seen more and more boat trailer manufacturers installing electric drum brakes on their trailers as OEM equipment. In the past boat trailers almost always had hydraulic drum or disc brakes as standard equipment since this avoided the natural concerns about combining electricity and water. The main reasons for this shift towards electric drum brakes are their lower cost and easier installation as compared to hydraulics, and that insulating...

  • What Are the Dimensions of the 7 Bolt Brake Mounting Flange
  • The 7 bolt brake mounting flange that the Electric Trailer Brake with Dust Shield part # AKEBRK-12R for right hand and part # AKEBRK-12L for left hand uses is an industry standard pattern so if you have a 9,000 lb to 15,000 lb axle then it will use this same 7 bolt brake mounting flange pattern so you don't really need to measure this. I have however attached a photo of theses measurements for you. I am not sure what depth dimension that you are looking for but if you can clarify this...
