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.

The website etrailer was easy to follow from searching all the way through ordering and confirmation I like till I got prompt notifications through email of roundabout time of delivery, delivery was fast also accurate packaging looks great and the product looks great looks exactly what I see in the picture it also looks to be made of good material being a 25 year plus mechanic I must say overall experience with was not only accurate but very prompt smooth flow throughout the whole process and received my package early thank you guys at I'll be looking forward into doing future business again James H



thank you mr. George for following up the brake assembly that I purchased look like it was good quality pretty simple straightforward to install but unfortunately it was not the type that I needed for my trailer so I had to return it Im looking at your future business again once I get some money established thank you very much and have a good day


Read reviews and everyone loved the speedy service...I was in a time crunch finding one destroyed brake lining while repacking bearings for an important trip.... 2 days was awesome for shipping


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!


Excellent item. Very pleased.

Mark J.


Very good.


Best deal ever. I thought I had to buy the parts individually. Love etrailer


3 of the 6 brakes were tore up and parts falling off of them as in springs and adjusters

Well thats not good that your order arrived in this condition. Our customer service team will be reaching out. Do you have some pictures of the damage?


Easy to install and adjust!
is a great source, with full sections and information to compare!


Every thing loos good and cam quick thank you


I changed from hydraulic surge to electric, so I needed a new couple. The install was simple, and towing is much more solid by getting rid of the sloppy slide action coupler with the surge brakes.

Dave S.


The conversion from hydraulic to electric is something I should have done when I first bought the trailer. The parts are working great! I want to say things are working better now than when the trailer was new. It pulls easier, sways less, and stops with confidence.




On time, the right part couldn’t ask for anything more


Good products at great prices. Got a used trailer and rebuilt it for $1800 which includes the cost of the trailer.


thank u etrailer for sending me 2 extra nuts & 2 extra mounting studs. the best way to remove a bad stud is to drill it out. As u know im the one who had a mounting nut go on & turn both directions after it was put on. i could not back the nut off to replace the stud. i took a drill bit a little smaller than the stud & drilled the head of the mounting stud off. i drilled pased the 4 hole plate, knocked the nut off the back side, & taped the remainder of the stud out of the hole. No damage was done to the plate. Taking a grinder to it would have been a bad deal. The only thing i wished was in my hardware would have been a simple drawing of which the right & left sides of the trailer were. i had to go back & spend most of the day & swap both sides of the trailer after i done a complete job of putting on the brake assemblies. I did averything i thought to do to get it right the first time. I got it wrong! A simple way would be just to remind everyone that the longer brake pad goes to the rear of the trailer. I now have everything back together & everything works fine. What a nightmare, but now im in good shape. I would like to have better tires thou. Stronger & taller tires. I have looked at the contender st225/75r15 with the white rims. Soon i hope to chat with you on these tires. Again thanks for sending me the extra hardware. I will most diffinitly pass your website out to ones that i know. randy , fully custom built rv out of a v noise 16 foot cargo trailer, spent one year to build....


I was very satisfied with my entire experience with etrailer. The people were very courteous and knowledgeable. I received my item sooner than expected and they were as advertised. All four electric brakes worked the first try. Have ordered four stabilizer jacks since that are to arrive today.


Perfect fit, well made!



Still working great! I’ve put lots of miles on the trailer with various heavy loads and all worked well.


I needed to retrofit my two axle trailer to get it state inspected. I bought everything I needed from etrailer. I love one stop shopping! I was very pleased with the delivery time and the high quality of parts I bought. The brakes work like a charm. The only thing that I would suggest for the company is to recommend break away automatic braking device when selling these brakes. It was required by law in Pa and I had to buy an automatic brake locally.
I would do business with these folks any day. I highly recommend.


Perfect fit just like it was supposed to! It was nice to be able to order only one instead of having to order both. Great price too.


First I will start of I am probably offer kill in my research for things I will buy. I felt very comfortable moving forward with the purchase of these products. The price was in beatable, I looked. I was weary that the wiring would be cut due to shippinglike so many others said, but glad to say I got lucky or e trailer in my opinion looked at reviews and made corrections in packaging. I have never been let down from e trailer over the past few years I have done business with them. The products installed perfectly. I took the fifth wheel trailer out for a spin after installing the new hardware and it performed flawlessly. I look forward to years of these products serving my family. Last I will mention the great features most products have with an attached video demonstrating how to install e trailers products. Thanks again e trailer!


Thought about replacing brake shoes but so happy I chose to purchase the whole package including magnets, backing plate, springs etc. Perfect fit and very happy with performance.


Purchased new backing plates assemblies and drum assemblies 2 to replace worn out parts and 2 for installation on an axle that didn't have brakes on at all. Parts fit great and have been working flawlessly for a year. Great parts, prices, and shipping time.


Brad B.


fantastic parts at rock bottom prices and free shipping!! You just can't beat etrailer for parts.

John A.




The brake assembly arrived on the exact day it was promised. The quality was equal to or better than the original equipment on my trailer and fit perfectly with my existing hub and drum. I am very happy with the product and service. I will use etrailer again if I need brake parts in the future.


Save yourself the trouble and just order these instead of trying to fight old, rusted brakes and shoes. 4 bolts and 2 wires and you are done. Mine were pretty adjusted so didn't have much else to do. E-trailer for easy and economical!


Used these to replace my surge brake system. Way more work to remove the surge system than to install these. I live in the mountains and surge brakes are a real challenge when long grades are encountered. Burned them up several times! So far, these worked so well on one axle that I decided to add them to the other axle. Have more than enough braking now and can adjust the braking performance with the controller. Way better system for mountain driving.

  • What Measurements are Needed to Pick Out Trailer Axle
    To pick out a replacement axle we need three pieces of info. We need the distance from hub face to hub face, from spring center to spring center, and we need to know the capacity of the axle. The capacity would be listed on a plate/sticker on the axle. I attached a picture that shows where you'd need to measure as well.

  • Installation of Brake Hub Drum Assemblies Over Brake Assemblies
    It is probably a misunderstanding of term dust seal. I'm assuming you are trying to put your new brake drum hub over your drum brake assemblies. If you don't have the ability to simply install them over the shoes, you will need to use the adjuster screw on the assemblies to allow the shoes to come closer together for that installation and then adjust them for a slight drag on the drum once installed. If you have the correct brake and hub assemblies, this fit should be easy. I've attached...

  • Will Having Brakes On Both Trailer Axles Cause Brakes to Lock Up if Applied When Trailer is Unloaded
    It possibly could with the trailer unloaded, but you can adjust your brake controller to prevent this from happening. Just after the brake controller has been installed, you'll want to do some dry runs towing the trailer in a large parking lot or somewhere you won't have to deal with traffic. Accelerate to 25 or so, and with the power on the controller set halfway, actuate the manual brake switch on the controller fully. If the brakes lock up, lower the power. If the braking power was...

  • Troubleshooting Weaker New Trailer Brakes Where Adjustment isn't Issue
    What assemblies did you have in the hubs originally and what did you replace them with? Were the brakes you installed self adjusting or manual adjusting? Did you happen to install any new wiring that may have been a lighter gauge than 10? In general though, as long as you are able to get adequate braking power I wouldn't worry too much about the specific gain setting. If you are getting consistent strong braking power I wouldn't sweat it too much unless for some reason you need to increase...

    When installing electric brakes onto your single axle camper you can not use 2 left brakes on one axle. You will need one Left # AKEBRK-35L and one Right # AKEBRK-35R. If one set of brake assemblies is on the wrong side of the axle, it will lead to diminished braking performance and premature brake wear.

If the assembly is 10 inches (see picture for where to measure) in diameter and has a 4 bolt pattern the part # AKEBRK-35R would work great for the right hand side and then for the left hand side you would need the part # AKEBRK-35L.

    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).
