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 Electric Trailer Brake Kit Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the E-Trailer 10-Inch Self-Adjusting Electric Trailer Brake kit offering the left, and right hand brake assemblies designed for use on 3500 pound axles. The part number is AKEBRK-35-SA. Now, these are available in just the left or right as well. Part number for the left is AKEBRK-35L-SA, and for the right part number is AKEBRK-35R-SA. Now, the E-Trailer brake assembly is going to be the perfect solution for either added or replacing brakes on your trailer. This is an electric type assembly.

We've got a magnet here when energized it sticks to the hub. Causes this arm.To separate you can see that moves. We get a separation here, which expands our shoes onto our drone giving us this stopping force. Now, there are a couple of reasons I like the complete assembly idea rather than just buying shoes, and hardware, and stuff like that. One, changing a complete brake assembly is much quicker than trying to change the shoes, and also if you just buy a set of shoes to put on here, everything else in this system is still old.

It still has corrosion on it, it still has issues. With a complete assembly we're getting a brand new magnet that has no wear on it, our shoe keepers, our springs, our adjustment cable, the adjuster that we have down here, everything is brand new so we know it's going to work properly.Something else you'll find that's an advantage to this style of assembly with the self-adjustment in it versus the older traditional style is that these are meant to adjust themselves. As your drums wear. On our shoes here, that distance is going to get smaller, so we need these to expand out slightly to help keep good contact on that drum. Our star adjuster is going to rotate clicking into position on the tab we have here on the back allowing to again just self-adjust.

It's going to be the correct position each time. I like this type of star adjuster. It has minor increments of adjustments, so this is going to be more fine-tuned. We're not going to be stuck for an extended period of time with poor performing breaks because it can't quite get to that next adjustment point.With the finer adjustments we have here our brakes can stay more fine tuned to the size they need to. That's going to help to eliminate some of that brake fade when your shoes wear down, and you can't quite get to that next adjustment.

It's something you kind of had with the older traditional style adjusters, but now that they're making them more fine tuned we can get better performance out of the assemblies.Now, the shoes themselves are very high quality. We've got automotive grade friction material. The friction material has been bonded to the shoe itself, so we're not going to have to worry about the rivets that used to be in there. Those can kind of cause us premature life because the rivet head would be stuck up, and we'd start to get some wear. This is also going to help to reduce the risk of it cracking, or maybe crumbling, getting locked up, and causing our tire to lock, and not spin freely. Something else that I like about the assembly, all of the components are corrosion resistant, so even with the higher corrosion properties that we typically get out of friction material they're not going to have to worry about crazy amounts of rust, or anything like that forming in our assembly causing it not to work as good as it could.Now, when you get your assemblies if you do decide to get left and right, there's a pretty easy way to tell them apart. The left assembly, our magnet will be on the bottom, and our larger shoe is going to be on the back. That's our primary shoe. You see here on the front Our shoe is going to be a little bit shorter. That's our secondary shoe. That's always going to be towards the front of our trailer. These are going to be the 10-inch assembly, so we get 10 inches there, and then we've got a 2 and a quarter inch pad widths. You want to make sure that's what your trailer has for that's what's going to work with the hubs that you've purchased. If you're adding brakes, it's designed to work with your 13, 14, and 15 inch tires, and on 3500 pound axles with the 4 bolt rake flange.Now, to begin your installation we need to get our tire, and our old hub off. Now, that doesn't matter if you already have existing brakes, and you want to change those, or like use you're going to be adding new brakes to a trailer. Now, you want to use a hammer. I typically like to use a dead blow hammer. You just want to start tapping on this cap. You can see how it's going to create a little bit of a gap there. Kind of tap back towards you, and you'll be able to pop that off. Now, once that's off you want to clean your spindle here, you want to find your cotter pin. Ours has a cotter pin anyway. Yours may have a what they call more like a nut keeper, which should be something that slides over, but regardless we want to get that pulled out.Since we have our cotter pin we're just going to straighten that out. If you have your other style you'll just pop that off. I like to use side cutters because you can kind of get a hold of them, then just kind of pull it out. Now, you can try to save your cotter pin if you want, or get a replacement. You can see this is a pretty fresh cotter pin. If we straighten that out we should be able to just put it back in there. If you damage it though just get a new one to replace it.Now, we'll take our nut off. Not a lot of tension on this, you probably not going to need a wrench or anything. Just some pliers, we're going to hang on to this, and also the washer that's in behind it. The bushing that's in behind it. You can see if we wiggle this a little bit, pull that off there. A little flat side on it. That's always going to go to the flat side of your spindle. Now, we'll just gently pull outward on that, then we can take our assembly off. Now, if you have a drum assembly already, this is going to be pretty much the same process. The process on removing it. You're just going to have your brake assembly behind it. Now, if you don't have brakes, and you're going to be adding them to your trailer, you want to be sure you have your 4-bolt flange. That's going to ensure that these brakes are going to work for you.Now, we'll clean our spindle up really well. Since this did have . You can see that discoloration, that rusting in there that means moisture has been in here. We really need to check for any pinning, or any issues like that, that we might encounter on our spindle. You want it to be nice and smooth. Now, since we're going to be adding brakes to the trailer, we of course aren't going to have any assemblies to remove. But take a look here on the backside of the assembly, and it would give you an idea of what you'll need to do if you are removing brakes. You'll have four studs that stick through the backing plate. They're going to go through that mounting flange. On the back of that you should have a nut, and a lock washer. You want to remove all those, but hang on to them because you're going to reuse them.Once that's off and out of the way we can take our new assembly, slide it right into that flange, we want the magnet to be here at the bottom. Now, if you're adding new brakes if you don't already have existing brakes, we do have a brake hardware kit. The part number is BIK-00. That's going to give you your lock washer, and your nut. You're going to need one kit for each assembly, so if you're doing two like we're doing you're going to need two. If you're doing four to four, six to six. Now, we'll take that, we're going to thread it right onto those studs, we'll place your lock washer on first, and then our hex nut. You'll do that at all four locations.Now, you'll use an 11/16th socket. We need to snug down all four of our bolts, then we'll torque them. Alright. Now, let's head over to the opposite side, and we'll do the same thing there. We're ready to connect our wires. We got two green wires that are coming out of the back of the assembly. It doesn't matter which one you use for what. One needs to go to ground, and the other needs to go to the brake controller signal, which will come through your seven way. Now, since our trailer did not have a seven pull on it, it started with a four pull like a non-brake setup. We used part number ET7WK, which is going to give you a seven pull round for the front. It gives you a junction box, and the wire that you'll need to run back here, and make your connection.Once we get back here in that kit, we've got heat shrink butt connectors. You can pick these up as part number DW05745. We're just going to get those crimped on, and then with or without the brakes you'll either have your new wire that you've ran back here, or your existing brake wire that was on your trailer. Those will connect to those wires. We'll just use a heat source. It could be a heat gun, we can use a mini torch. We're using a lighter here as you can see. We're just going to apply a little bit of heat at a time to these. You'll see them start to shrink down. When it finally does shrink down fully it looks like the wire magnifies a little bit. It kind of looks like it gets a little bit bigger. You can kind of see there. Then on this far end there will be a little bit of clear gel that comes out of it.Once we have these shrunk down properly as you can see, you want to make sure there's enough slack here for movement because the suspension is going to go up and down a little bit. Then you're ready if you're just replacing an old brake assembly to get your hub back on after you repack the bearing. If you're adding brakes like what we're doing today then we'll take our new hub, and we'll put it on. Hi guys. We brought in Dave now to get kind of a second set of eyes on the assembly, and see if there's anything I missed that he might be able to pick up, and give you some more information. This is the new 10-inch, 2 and a quarter inch wide brake assembly. It looks like it's nice. Is there anything you see that kind of stands out on this that we don't see on a lot of the other type assemblies we get through here. Dave: Well, I did notice it's got the bonded pads, which will prevent rivet gouging when the pads start to get low to save your drum. Speaker 1: Mm-hmm (affirmative). Dave: I did also notice that on the adjuster here it's got this nice roller style to allow for easier free movement for better adjustment. Speaker 1: It is nice. That's something we don't often see. That just allows that a little bit freer movement so that it'll adjust more readily. There's something else that I just kind of noticed looking at that. There's a couple of plugs here on the back side. Even if you did for some reason need to manually adjust it, at least you'd be able to get to them. Some don't really offer that access point to get in there. Dave: Yeah, that's a nice feature too. Other than that it's got all the standards that you would see in a typical system. It looks like it'll hold up fine. Speaker 1: It all looks of the same quality we see on anything else. Dave: Mm-hmm (affirmative). Speaker 1: Alright. Perfect. Thanks man. Dave: Alright. No problem. Speaker 1: That's going to complete our installation of the E-Trailer Self-Adjusting 10-Inch Electric Trailer Brake Kit.

Brakes were just as described bolted on with no problem. I wish the sales person on the phone would have mentioned that they did not come with the 7/16-20 nuts to mount them. I would have ordered them with my purchase had I known. I had to go to 3 stores and bought every last nut I could find because they are hard to find. I now have a mismatch of some nylock and some jam nuts and some standard grade 5 hex nuts because that is all I could find in fine thread. I told the sales person I was adding brakes to a trailer that had none. They up sold me on the self adjusting which I think was a good purchase but the up sell on the nuts would have been better. Also there were only 9 lug nuts included in the package and I needed 10 but I was able to use an old rusted one. I will purchase from etrailer again I will just do a little research first and make sure I am ordering everything I needed. 275532

These complete replacement brakes are excellent quality, as a retired Heavy Equipment /Truck mechanic, I can rebuild anything,but it was nice to be able to bolt on parts that are of this quality and save several hours labor, while saving money over purchasing parts to rebuild my brakes. These brakes were perfect to finish off a suspension upgrade / overhaul. 253075

Bought a Hayes 3500 lbs axle that sat in the dirt for years and the pads nearly fused to the hubs. Well worth the money for piece of mind. Only suggestion is to pick up the 7/16-20 bolts with your order (eTrailer, why not just add it to the kit?) Made my trailer project much easier. Thank you much! 268841

Upgraded my old worn out brakes with these self adjusting units. They fit perfect and have been trouble free. Previous owner got carried away with the Easy Lub Hubs!! I personally don't like them, as you don't know where the grease is going. I would rather do the lubing job the old fashion way. Not only do I know it's right, but I get to inspect all the brake components while at it. 390529

I am very happy with my purchase a year later. I have no complaints at all. The product installed and is working as I would expect. The price was impressive as well when i placed my order for the brake kits. The staff was very helpful too. I saved money with etrailer, spoke with knowledgeable staff, got the correct parts the first time and with no hassles or extended waiting. I will do business with the company again in the future as needed without question. 696435

I am so glad I Purchased the entire brake assembly instead of individual parts.

I highly recommend this product 691465

etrailer found the parts I needed and shipped them super fast. The self adjusting brakes were easy to install and work great but didn't come with new wire connectors. 686509


Comments

The brake assembly does not come with new butt connectors for installation. If you are replacing the brakes on a single axle trailer, I recommend the heat shrink butt connector kit # DW05745-5
Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector - 12-10 Gauge - Nylon Insulation - Yellow - Qty 5
$5.09
that includes 5 connectors. If you are replacing the brakes on a dual axle trailer, I recommend kit # DW05745-10
Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector - 12-10 Gauge - Nylon Insulation - Yellow - Qty 10
$8.13
that includes 10 butt connectors.

I bought 4 of these to update a 70s era trailer. They bolted right on, and seemed to work well enough. I used the trailer a couple of times for very short trips, but didn’t go very far for over a year. When I did, 3 out of 4 of them were adjusting into the drums very tightly and heating up. The self adjusting mechanisms were not working properly. I removed the wheels and examined thoroughly and they were all on the correct side and installed properly. I could get the brakes to tighten up significantly by spinning the wheel forward and activating the controller. I ended up discarding the self adjusters to make them work. 542510

I bought two pair of these (left and right side) for my tandem axle camping trailer two years ago (2016). The original magnets were worn out and there were some cracks in the shoes, so this was the way to go. I've used them for two seasons now, and they have been trouble-free. I haul it about a thousand miles a year, through the Adirondack Mountains here in upstate NY, and the brakes are put to the test. Seem to be a good product, at a good price. 440624

  • 10 x 2-1/4 Inch Trailer Brakes to Replace Dexter Electric Brakes
  • The brakes you have now are 10 x 2-1/4 inch brakes with a 4-bolt pattern. For a left and right replacement I recommend our house brand # AKEBRK-35-SA. These are also self-adjusting brakes so after the initial manual adjustment they will not have to be adjusted again. I have included a link to a video review of these brakes for you.

  • How To Measure A Trailer Spindle To Find Replacement Hubs And Bearings
  • To make sure you find the right replacement hubs you can do a couple of things. First check out the bearing and see if you can find the numbers for the bearings either etched or stamped on the side of the bearing. If you can not find the numbers you will need to measure the spindle. I have attached a drawing that shows where you need to measure the spindle to find the right replacements. The drawing also shows where to measure for a seal as well. You will also need to measure the inside...

  • Replacement AxleTek Electric Brake Assembly Part B10EA-21
  • The backing plate is not available separately from the entire assembly for this part number. When the backing plate needs replacing, the other components need replaced as well. The B10EA-21 AxleTek 10" x 2 1/4" LH Self-Adjusting Electric Brake Assembly is # AKEBRK-35L-SA. If you want the set, then use # AKEBRK-35-SA. These are exact replacements and will allow zero maintenance once initially adjusted. I've attached a video to assist. To get the initial adjustment, we recommend...

  • Self-Adjusting Trailer Brake Assemblies for Timbren Axle-Less Suspension ASR2000S02
  • The recommended hub/drum for use with the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension Kit # ASR2000S02 is either the powder-coat version # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K or the galvanized version # AKHD-545-35-G-EZ-K, both of which are the 10-inch size. You are correct that these hubs require 10-inch brakes and that often a 2K axle uses smaller brakes in the 7 x 1-1/4-inch drum size. With either of these hub/drums you can use our cost-effective etrailer self-adjusting brakes, left-hand # AKEBRK-35L-SA and...

  • Is the Bolt Hole Pattern for a Brake Assembly the Same as the Wheel
  • The 2-7/8" bolt pattern for the brake assemblies # AKEBRK-35R-SA and # AKEBRK-35L-SA as well as the 2-13/16" bolt pattern for the brake assemblies # 23-454 and # 23-455 has to do with where the mounting bolts are for the assemblies to the brake flange on your spindle (see attached photo). The bolt pattern for your wheels has to do with the bolt locations on the hub and drum assembly. For example, the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-407-5UC3-EZ that is rated for 4,400 lb axles has a...

  • Which Axle Should Electric Brakes be Installed on with Tandem Axle Trailer
  • When installing electric brake assemblies on just one axle of a tandem axle trailer, you will essentially want to choose the axle that is going to be seeing more weight. Typically on utility trailers, most of the weight will be in front of the axles so the brake assemblies will be installed on the front axle. For boat trailers, where the motors are at the rear, you will usually see brakes on the rear axle. I have attached a great article that details everything you will need to install...

  • How to Determine 3,500 lb Electric Brake Assembly Fitment
  • The Electric Trailer Brake Assembly - Self-Adjusting - 10" - Right Hand - 3,500 lbs # AKEBRK-35R-SA and Left Hand # AKEBRK-35L-SA may be a fit for your 2016 Heartland Mallard M32 though you do need to ensure you have the correct weight capacity, drum size and brake mounting flange. However, since you referenced a part number for brakes that fit trailers for axles before 2009, you may be talking about a kit from Dexter for 4,400 lb axles. Since you have a 2016 trailer they would not fit,...

  • Bearing and Brake Assembly Kit Recommendation for Dexter Hub 8-250
  • From previous customers we have determined that the Dexter 8-250 hub bearings are # L68149 and # L44649 which means for a bearing kit you would need # BK2-100. That means for brake assemblies you would need the part # AKEBRK-35R-SA for the right hand side and part # AKEBRK-35L-SA for the left hand side.

  • Replacement Electric Drum Brake for 1997 Pace American Car Hauler Trailer
  • It is normal for an electric drum brake magnet to hum when it is receiving 12V power from your brake controller. However, since you hear the drum dragging on the brake shoes even before you apply the brakes this suggest a mechanical failure in that one brake. Chances are it is not the magnet causing your trouble but is more likely to be a broken spring or damaged brake shoe. I suggest you pull that hub and inspect the brake. You may want to pull the other wheel on that same side so you...

  • One Nev-R-Adjust Trailer Brake Assembly is Very Tight Even After Loosening the Brakes
  • Is it possible that the drum is slightly smaller than the one on the other side? This does not seem likely but it might be worth measuring them on the insides to see. Adjusting self adjusting brakes is actually a little more difficult than you might think. If you were able to turn the adjustment wheel to back off the shoes and you have reached as far as it will go, try giving the shoes a little inward push. It is possible that they are stiff or need lubrication (careful not to get any...

  • Brake Installation Hardware and Torque Required for 10-Inch Drum Brakes
  • Electric drum brakes such as # AKEBRK-35L-SA will use nut/lock washer hardware kit # BRKH10BS and the nuts should be tightened to 45 to 50-ft-lbs. If you need a torque wrench we offer several such as # ALL644044 as well as Torque Adapter # PTM206 which fits any 1/2-inch ratchet.

  • Are New Brake Drums Required if Replacing Electric Brake Assemblies on a Trailer
  • If you already have brake drums you will not have to replace them unless they are damaged or became overheated and have discoloration on the inside armature surface where the magnet rides, grooves in the armature surface, or severe wear where the pads ride. If the drums are in good shape there really isn't a benefit to getting new ones when you replace the brakes. Speaking of the brakes if you are looking for 10 x 2-1/4 inch assemblies I recommend our brand # AKEBRK-35L-SA for the left...

  • Self Adjusting Brake Setup Recommendation for a Lippert 3,500 lb Trailer Axle
  • You actually have a Lippert 3,500 lb axle which we definitely have hub drums available for. I searched the part numbers you gave to determine that. For a hub that will fit your spindle you would want the part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K which is a 10 inch hub drum that has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. Then for brake assemblies you would want the part # AKEBRK-35R-SA for the right hand side and part # AKEBRK-35L-SA both of these are self adjusting assemblies that would fit and work well for you.

  • Replacement Dexter Brake Assemblies for 023-027-00 and 023-026-00
  • We have direct replacements for the two brake assembly part numbers you listed. You would want part # AKEBRK-35R and # AKEBRK-35L. Or, for never adjust assemblies the part # AKEBRK-35L-SA and # AKEBRK-35R-SA would work as well. Most likely you have a Dexter 3,500 lb axle and the correct bearings would be the # BK2-100. However, since I do not know for sure what axle you have you would need to pull the hubs of your trailer to get the numbers stamped on the bearings so that we can pick...

  • Replacement Hub/Drums and Brake Assemblies for Lippert Axle
  • A replacement hub and brake assembly will work well with your existing axle if you choose a hub/drum that's compatible with the spindles on your axle, if the replacement hub drum and your existing hub use the same inner and outer wheel bearings and the same wheel bolt pattern, and if your existing axle has a brake mounting flange on it (see photo). I'll link you to our selection of hub/drums for a 3500 lb axle. Simply use the filters on the side of the page to narrow down your selections...

  • How to Determine if Trailer Brake Magnets/Brake Assemblies and Hub and Drums Need to Be Replaced
  • The way you are describing testing your brake magnets is the way we recommend testing the brake magnets, by connecting the multimeter to the blue brake wire behind the brake controller. When testing your trailer with 4, 10 inch brake drums, the maximum amperage should be between 15.0-16.3 amps at 12-13 volts. Assuming the appropriate voltage is reaching the brakes, the 0.025 amps reading is much too low for your trailer brake magnets. I have attached a help article on testing brake magnets...
