Manual-Adjust Brake

With repeated use of this brake assembly, the brake shoes may move out of alignment, causing less efficient braking performance. To keep the brake shoes aligned and the brake assembly performing correctly, you should perform routine maintenance.


This brake assembly should be adjusted after installation and then as needed for the life of the brake. To adjust the brake, use a brake adjustment screw tool (sold separately) to turn the adjustment gear on the inside of the assembly. Continue to turn the gear until the drum surrounding the brake catches on the brake pads enough so that the hub can no longer be turned easily by hand. Then reverse the gear by about 10 clicks. A properly adjusted brake should drag slightly on the brake drum.


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 Assembly Installation

Today we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the etrailer electric 10-inch trailer brake assembly. This is designed for use on 3500 pound axles. Left-hand part number is AKEBRK-35L. For the right side it's going to be part number AKEBRK-35R. All right, now here's what our brakes are going to look like installed. This is a really nice option for completely replacing everything in your braking system here.

You can see rather than just doing our shoes, we're getting completely new hardware throughout. We're going to get new wires that come in, so this is really going to reduce the chance of failure or us having to come back in a little bit down the road and start replacing these things piece by piece. Now, this uses automotive grade pads, so there's nothing cheap about this setup. It's 2 1/4 inches wide, 10 inches in diameter. Now there's a circular scuff pattern designed into the shoes themselves. It's pretty microscopic, tough to see, but this is going to help to reduce vibration and also noise.

Another thing that helps out with this, we're going to have a chamfered edge here. The edge is slightly turned down just a little bit. Again, that makes the contact between the shoe and the drum very nice, without the vibration or the chatter that we can sometimes get. This is an electric brake assembly, so what that means is we don't have any hydraulic lines. We don't have any fluid.

We're not going to have to worry about bleeding anything. We've got a magnet right here, and when this magnet gets 12 volt power, it sticks to the hub that's going to be spinning. Now, as that spins, it pulls that lever, and you can see right up here at the top the expansion that we get. That's what gives us our braking force. It's a really nice, simple setup. This uses a 4 bolt pattern.

We've got 4 bolts here. They're going to go right into the flange. You want to reuse the hardware that is holding on your existing brakes, and this is going to work out really good for 13, 14, 15 inch tires. They're designed to fit a 3500 pound axle, so you want to make sure you're getting the right brakes for the right job. The backing plate, the arm, our pads here, these have an e-code on them, so while we know that the braking material itself is a pretty corrosive material, this is going to help keep these things lasting for a long time, so our components won't fatigue. You can see all the yellow looking items here. Again, that's a corrosion preventative that's been on there, and again with the nickel. Everything's designed to last a good long time for you. Now, our pads are completely bonded to the shoe itself, so we won't have to worry about the rivet heads that can typically stick up through the pads and make contact with our drum causing damage. Now, our brakes are also equipped with the inspection cover here, the adjustment cover, just a plug. We're going to pop that out. You can see our wheel spins pretty freely. We can hear a little bit of contact but it's going just a little bit too much. We want to make sure that our shoes are just on our drum there, so what we'll do is just kind of bring our adjuster in here and we can adjust those out just a little bit. You can see as we adjust that, that wheel's going to slow down. All right. That feels pretty good. At this point, since we have these adjusted, we won't have to make any more break in processes. We won't have to go through anything like that. Every now and then, we'll need to come under here and adjust these just a little bit, just to keep them in good contact, to keep our braking performance optimized. Now of course we'll start with our tire removed. We're also going to remove the cap that's here on the end. That's the full metal cap that goes all the way around. If it's an E-Z Lube hub, it's going to have a black cap on the end. If not, it's just going to be a dome. What you want to do is just tap on the side of it and we'll slowly rotate that hub, and you'll see a crack starting to appear. We just keep working it a little bit back and forth, and it'll just pop off for us. Now it's time to get some of that grease out of the way. Actually in behind here there is a nut and also that cotter pin that we'll be taking out. You can see the top of it right there. Needle-nose pliers are going to be the right tool for the job here. What we want to do is just rotate that cotter pin, the bottom portion of it out. You can see if you push on those a little bit, the head of that cotter pin will come out and we'll just grab it and try to pull it on out of there. Now it's time for our channel locks here, and taking that nut off the end. We'll want to hang on to our nut. We're going to be reusing that. Then once that's off, if we give it a little wiggle, you'll see our old washer's right here, and just behind that we're going to have our old bearing. Pull those out, set them aside, and we're also going to remove our hub. Now what we'll do is take a look at the wiring here behind our brake assembly. We can see this one runs up to the front of the trailer, so that sends our signal back, goes into a split here. One set of this wire runs into this side brake hardware. The other one runs through the axle to the other side. We can leave these connected. It's a factory connection. It's been working up until now. What I'll do is just snip off the wires coming from the front. Then I need to isolate the 2 wires that are going through my axle, which are the 2 in the back, and just trim those here, pull that out, and now we can splice these together with our new brake whenever we get it installed. Now, you can see we've got 1, 2, 3 and 4 nuts that we're going to be taking out. This one you're going to need a wrench for. Behind each of them there are going to be lock washers, or at least should be lock washers, so be sure to either replace them or get new ones to go in their place. Here's where that wrench is going to come in handy just to get that last one. It's simply just going to come off. You can see this is in pretty bad shape. See all the cracking that's in that shoe. The next thing you'll have there is going to be separation, so you really don't want to see any of that stuff. Now we'll bring our new assembly right up into place, slide it right into our holes, and it's time to put our hardware back on there. All right, now let's get our wires stripped back. What we want to do is twist 2 of them together there. You're going to slide on one of part number DW05744, so our heat shrink butt connector. We'll be using 2 of these at each location. I'm going to make sure that's crimped on well, can't pull my wires. Now the good news is we're just operating a magnet, so we just need to pass power through it. You can't wire them backwards. Now I can go into the other side and get that crimped down, and then we'll use a heat source to go ahead and shrink down those connectors. That'll offer us a very water-tight connection. We won't have to worry about any corrosion at these connectors. Now to get my wires secured up out of the way I'm going to bend a hook and a zip tie. There's a nice little hole right here we can go in, get that to come back out. That'll just give us a clip right here in the back side. We're going to leave enough room because we are going to have a little bit of movement up and down, so we want to make sure we've got room, and then this will just prevent any excess movement of the wires so we don't have to worry about any rubbing or anything like that. Then we snip that off and we're ready to put the hub back on. Slide that on. We want to wiggle it and we'll feel that seal give us some resistance, then we'll just pop it on from there. Now we'll grab our outer bearing. That's going to slide in. You can see that seats right inside of its race. Then we're going to put our original flat washer back on. Now we'll thread on our castle nut. Now, we want to tighten it down all the way to start to be nice and secure. Our drum there should be, as you can see, a little bit tougher to move. Once we get it there we just want to back it off just a touch. We don't want to be able to move it in and out at all, but we want it to be able to spin pretty freely. Cotter pin to go in, and we'll use our needle-nose and get the 2 tabs pulled opposite of each other here. Now we can take our dust cap. As you can see we're using the new one here and we get it knocked on there just like that. Now with that all replaced, our bearing kit's installed. We've got a nice rebuilt hub here that should give us years of good service as long as we keep up with lubricating it, and we're ready to head around, take care of the other 3 positions. Now with our brakes adjusted properly, that's going to complete our installation of the etrailer 10-inch electric trailer brake assembly for 3500 pound axles, part number AKEBRK-35L for the left and AKEBRK-35R for the right.

The magnetic pick up and brake pads were all worn so it was time to replace them. The backing plate fit and in stalled easily . The shoes had to adjusted with the drum was installed. The butt splice I order didn’t work because the one had six wires on one side and they all would not fit in so be prepared for that . 484232

Very nice setup for the cost, no doubt. My only complaint is that I was doing a 4 wheel brake conversion, as in adding brakes to one axle, and the nuts and washers that hold the backing plates on, were not included. This created a major headache, since I was doing the job by myself. Had to disconnect trailer from truck, lock up the shop, and drive around looking for 8 7/16" fine thread nuts, which wasn't as easy as it sounds....For the negligible price of them, they should be included for not only the people doing a brake addition, but for anyone doing a brake replacement as well. That aside, install was smooth as silk...and trailer stops much quicker and easier with 4 wheel brakes...especially with a heavyweight old Chevelle on it...I believe I will swap out the original backing plates from the original braking axle, just for piece of mind. Thanks for the quick shipping! 265421

  • Looks like you have a 3,500 lb Dexter axle without brake flanges. The correct brake flanges for that style of axle is the part # 4-35. Welding a mounting flange, possible item # 4-35, is a very precise installation. The flanges need to be installed square and concentric to the hub and drum assembly and each other.

  • 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...

  • Replacement Brake Assembly Recommendation for a 2006 Fleetwood Mallard Trailer
  • Sounds like you have standard 10 inch brake assemblies on your trailer. The part # AKEBRK-35L would work for the left hand side and part # AKEBRK-35R would work for the right hand side. These are both the same size as what you have and have the same 4 bolt mounting flange.

  • Can Electric Trailer Brakes be Used on Boat Trailers
  • For a very long time it was recommended to not use electric brake assemblies on boat trailers, but recently boat trailer manufacturers have been equipping their trailer with electric brakes. Plus we see people do it all the time without issue so we know it's okay now to use electric brakes on boat trailers. We still recommend disconnecting the brakes before backing the trailer into the water. If you needed a 10 inch brake assembly for a 3,500 lb axle the part # AKEBRK-35R would work...

  • Electric Drum Brake Recommendations for a 3,500 Pound Trailer Axle
  • The most cost effective solution to add brakes would be to use your existing hubs and drums and use new electric drum brake assemblies. We have several options in the electric drum brake for 3,500 pound axles category. First, we have basic etrailer.com 10 inch drum brakes, # AKEBRK-35L (left hand) and # AKEBRK-35R (right hand). We also carry the etrailer.com Self Adjusting Electric Brake Assembly, # AKEBRK-35L-SA (left hand) and # AKEBRK-35R-SA (right hand). The advantage of these 10...

  • How to Choose the Correct Brake Assembly for Trailer Axles
  • You will need to do some measuring to determine if the 10 Inch Electric Brake Assembly LH, item # AKEBRK-35L, is the correct assembly for your trailer. Measure the diameter of the mounted brake shoe, the width of the lining and the distance between the mounting holes on center. It may also help if you can determine the manufacturer of your brake. Once you have these measurements you can choose the correct assembly for your axles. It is recommended to change both of the brake assemblies...

  • Bearings and Brake Assembly Recommendation for 1999 Coleman Utah Popup
  • Since we know your brake assemblies are 10 inch by 2-1/4 inches wide we basically know you have 3,500 lb axles. The easiest solution for needing new shoes is to replace the assemblies as it will cost the same, be much less hassle determining correct parts, easier install, and you get all new components. So for that you'd want the part # AKEBRK-35R for the right hand side and part # AKEBRK-35L for the left hand side. Then for a bearing kit you'd want the part # BK2-100 and you'd be set.

  • Replacement Axle for 2,000 Pound Dexter Axle on a Pop-Up Camper
  • We have straight axles that are close to the measurements you have provided, see link, but the spring seats would have to be moved and none of them have brake mounting flanges. I propose a different approach by using a Timbren axle-less system # ASR2KHDS01. This system will provide the "axle" as well as the suspension in one unit plus the suspension part will not wear out nearly as quickly as traditional leaf springs because the rubber won't corrode. They are also set up for electric...

  • Timbren Axle-Less Suspension for Use with 30 Inch Tires and 6 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern Hubs
  • You can use 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern hub and drum assemblies on the Timbren Axle-Less system # ASR2KHDS03. For a hub and drum assembly that will work I recommend # AKHD-655-35-EZ-K. You can then add electric brake assembly # AKEBRK-35L for the left side and # AKEBRK-35R for the right side. Replacement parts are readily available for the hub and drum assemblies and the brakes. The Timbren system shouldn't ever need any part replaced but if it does we can take care of you there, too. Each...

  • Needing Brakes, Hubs, Bearings and Seals for a set of AL-KO Axles with 10 X 2-1/4 Inch Brakes
  • The brake assemblies that I recommend to replace your AL-KO brakes are # AKEBRK-35R and # AKEBRK-35L. Theses are the brake assemblies for both the left and right sides of the axle. I like these brake assemblies over the others we carry for two reasons, the shoe pads are machined rather than clipped and the magnets on theses brakes are thicker. The machined shoe pad will wear better and are sturdier than the clipped end shoe pad. The thicker magnet will wear better and in turn last longer...

  • Trailer Brakes Do Not Lock Up and Show Low Voltage, What is the Right Voltage
  • I contacted our representative at Redline about the issue you are having with your trailer brakes and your 1996 Toyota 4Runner. He informed me that there should be 12 volts of power at the trailer brakes if the brake controller is putting out 12 volts. Start with your brake controller. Review the set-up instructions that came with your controller to make sure it adjusted correctly. Then, use a multimeter like part # BTMT15 to check the voltage on the blue output wire of the controller....

  • Are Trailer Brake Magnets Polarity Sensitive
  • Trailer electric brake magnets are non-polarized. When installing an electric brake assembly, like the Electric Trailer Brake Assembly, Left Hand # AKEBRK-35L, either wire can be used for the brake signal and the ground wire, it will not matter which wire is used for which. I've attached a review video of this brake assembly. At the end of the review video, it is mentioned that either of the green wires can be used for either function. For the corresponding Right Hand Electric Trailer...

  • Replacement Electric Trailer Brakes for 1998 Coleman Fleetwood Sunridge Pop-Up Camper
  • We can help you with new electric drum brakes for your Coleman pop-up! You will just want to confirm a few details in order to select suitable replacement brake assemblies. First, check the axle's weight rating. This should be on a plate or sticker on the axle itself. Note you need to select a matching set of left- and right-hand brakes. You also need to make sure you choose the same size brake as what is now on the trailer, both in diameter and width, and the same mounting bolt pattern....

  • Troubleshooting Dexter 10 inch Brakes not Holding the Truck and Trailer and Magnets Touching Drum
  • It sounds as if you may have to adjust the trailer brakes or have a wiring issue. When the 10 inch brakes, part # AKEBRK-35L and # AKEBRK-35R, are installed on the trailer the brake magnet should release as long as there is no power to the magnets. The spring should not interfere with the release of the magnet as long as the brake assembly is assembled correctly, you should verify that the brake assemblies are assembled correctly. There is no adjustment of the brake arm that holds the...

  • 3,500 lb Trailer Axle Recommendation that's 95 inches Long and 5 on 5.5 inch Bolt Pattern Hubs
  • We have the parts you'll need! The axle you mentioned part # 7359765 is the correct starting point as it's a 3,500 lb axle that is 95 inches from hub face to hub face and has 80 inches between the spring seats. Then for hub/drums that have a 5 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern you'd want the # AKHD-555-35-K which fits this hub and then for brake assemblies you'd want the # AKEBRK-35R for the right hand side and the part # AKEBRK-35L for the left hand side. With all of these components you'd be set!

  • Right-hand Electric Drum Brake assembly For Trail-Lite Bantam Travel Trailer
  • The right-hand electric drum brakes we offer for 3500-lb axles are the 10 x 2-1/4-inch size. These are offered in manual-and self-adjust types that can be seen on the linked page. For example, for a self-adjusting right brake you can use Dexter # AKEBRK-35R-SA or part # AKEBRK-35R for a manual adjust brake. These fit a 4-bolt brake flange with holes spaced 2-7/8-inches on center. Your axle should have a sticker indicating its weight rating. You'll want to ensure you know the capacity...

  • One Electric Trailer Brake Assembly Does Not Release After Applying Brakes
  • You may be right. I would remove the assembly and check that all the components are in working order. See if you can get it to do the same thing while off the trailer by manipulating the various moving parts. Some of the parts may need to be properly lubricated but do not get any grease on the pads. You could also have a magnet or wiring issue that is causing the magnet to stick. You can test the magnet by itself to see if it is faulty. I have included a link to an FAQ article that explains...

  • Where are the Ground Wires Located on Electric Trailer Brakes
  • Electric brakes have 2 wires located at the back. One is for power and the other is for ground (it doesn't matter which is used for which function). The ground wires should be connected to the trailer frame. The only other place that would carry a ground is the main ground wire that is connected to the pin in the 5 o'clock position on the 7-Way of your trailer (see attached picture). I have attached a video of the trailer brake assemblies # AKEBRK-35L and # AKEBRK-35R being installed...

  • Replacement Drum Brakes and Hubs for 3500-lb AL-KO Axles
  • You can use larger brakes and hubs by matching up the brake mounting pattern to your flanges and by selecting new hubs that use the same bearing set as your current hubs. Matching the bearings will ensure the new hubs fit properly on your spindles. The linked photo shows the usual location of bearing numbers. If you wanted to use 4-bolt AxleTek # AKEBRK-35L and # AKEBRK-35R electric drum brakes and if your hubs use inner/outer bearings # L68149 and # L44649 you could use hub/drum # AKHD-545-35-K....

  • Electric Trailer Brakes Won't Release After I Hit Brakes
  • On a 5-way connection, the blue wire is normally for the brake controller as you stated. However the color of the wire in this case probably won't help us as it is evident this connection has already been tampered with. I have attached a trailer wiring diagram for you. The focus should be on the function of the wire and not on the color of the wire, so we can pair the correct functions at the trailer and vehicle connection points. To test the trailer wires, you can get a 12 volt batter...

  • Recommendation for Trailer Brakes On a 16 Foot Enclosed Trailer with 2 Axles And 5,000 LB GVW
  • If your trailer does not have brakes on the axles at this time then I would recommend putting brakes on at least one axle. Many car haulers and utility style trailers with 7,000 pound gross trailer and load weight ratings have brakes on only one axle. If you plan on using your trailer often and loading it near or to capacity, then brakes on both axles would make stopping with the trailer much easier and safer, and would save wear and tear on your vehicle braking system. If the trailer...
