  • Periodic manual adjustment required
    • Fine-tooth brake adjustment gear allows for a more precise setting
  • 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

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.

Excellent choice. I am very happy with my order. My trailer was done in no time. Brakes I ordered fit perfectly. Now it's done and I am happy and so as everyone on the road. Thanks etrailer.




by:

Bolted up fine and worked well during one season so far.




by:

Arrived just when I needed them! Fairly easy to install on our horse trailer and worked without a hassle. Even with 2nd day shipping, was a much cheaper option to local alternatives. Did not take a pic after they were installed, but they arrived looking just like the picture on the site.




by:

They are still stopping my trailer. Good product. Would buy again.




by:

well packaged -when the weather warms I will get these installed . they appear to be a as good as the left side that I installed in December. Staff was very helpful in the ordering process.




by:

I ordered 4 non-self adjusting brake sets and recieved 2 self adjusting right sides and 2 non-self adjusting left sides. I needed the project to be complete and I installed them. When i tok the out of the boxs, there was some rebuilding as things were out of alignment from shipping. Initial adjustments on both sets was a little more time consuming because of the lack of large adjustments, but once set they are great. The electrical hook ups were easy. They stop my 5000+lb camp trailer just fine. Finally, hardware being purchased separately is annoying. They should be packaged together and the hardware should be free with purchase of the brake sets.




by:

These brakes are excellent. I have had zero issues with them since the day they were installed.

NOTE: On average I haul around 8K lbs and also not often so take my review with a grain of salt. Sometimes the load is heavy (a front end loader) and other times it's not (trash run). Either scenario, no issues. A quick gain adjustment and brake check and I'm gone. I checked the bearing play after a week or so and around the 8 month mark. Both times were A+. I think I'm 17 months into ownership. They're still working flawlessly.

When new, these drums had little OOR (out-of-round) which surprised me. Most drums have some sort of noticeable OOR. These no so much. My trailer stops quietly and effortlessly now. No pulsation, skipping, tugging, etc.

Would I buy these again? ABSOLUTELY!!

Still going strong




by:

Installed all 4 brakes on 5th wheel trailer with slight adjustments worked great on 400 mile trip through the mountain's. Had to turn down brake controller voltage after the first 200 miles because brakes were working better than manufacturer brakes.




by:

Brake assembly was just what I ordered. Quality is good and installed with no problems. Etrailer shipped right away received within a few days. Great product, great service.


Comments
Still on my 5th wheel and holding up as expected. Great price on these.

by:

One of four brake assemblies was damaged in shipment. A replacement was shipped immediately after a pleasant conversation with customer service. The replacement came quickly and returning the damaged assembly was as easy as it could be with the provided return label and the box from the replacement unit. I've installed the other three at this point, with no trouble.




by:

When installing this brake kit be careful with the wires. The left side is prone to pinch the wires due to where they go through the backing plate. I had my son in law helping me. He pinched one and I pinched the other between the axle plate and the back plate. Had to put heat shrink over the damaged insulation. But, the brakes work great.

They are a very good deal for the money!




by:

Simple to install. Exact replacement for my '95 Sundowner Horse Trailer which is 5k lbs empty.
Still plenty of pad left after a year.
Powerful. Now my Truck stops better with the trailer attached!




by:

Excellent---- Web site is easy to navigate & has informative pages.
Prices continue to beat my local trailer sales.
Even though etrailer is on east coast & i'm located in mid west, I get deliveries in 2-3 days.
Parts are packaged well & have always shown up in excellent condition.


Comments
Everything is still going well with the parts. Thanks so much

by:

Ordered trailer brake assemblies for carhauler. Received what I ordered in a timely fashion & they bolted right up, have held up well!




by:

These were a perfect replacement on our dump trailer at a much more reasonable price. I didn't see any difference in quality between these and assemblies at double the cost. Next time I need trailer parts I will probably shop around, (that's just what I do) then go to etrailer.com to buy.




by:

Brakes came in quick. 3 days I believe. Work great. They were replacements for my 25 ft gooseneck that I haul hay with. Only thing that would make them better is if they came with no butt connectors for the wiring.




by:

Top shelf products, excellent selection, awesome prices. Converting a tandem trailer to electric brakes, these guys had it all from bolt on coupler to the new drums! Love these guys!




by:

Makes rebuilding your trailer easy. Get some shrink wrap crimp connectors for the magnet wire and its a wrap. Magnets are not specific to + - so hook to either wire and all is well.




by:

All parts were a perfect fit, 2 hours per wheel change out including repack bearings, brakes were simple to adjust, took the 32ft 5th wheel on road test, after getting brake controller dialed in the brakes worked extremely well, was very satisfied precise bolt holes matching up to 5200lb axle




by:

Brake assembly is a perfect fit and reasonably priced. Provides a good way to change out the brake assembly. It would be good to include a set of wire splice connectors to complete the kit.




by:

Thanks for keeping in touch, your brake assembly is A great. you can not be the price with free shipping, easy to install, we go there a set per year, we put a lot of miles on this one trailer, I would recommend your brakes to any of my friends.
Again Thanks Gene




by:

Trailer brakes and drums arrived is perfect condition. Put them on the same afternoon they arrived. The fit is great and installation was easy. Great product for the do-it-yourself-er.




by:

Now this is the way to go. Complete brake assembly. Just unbolt, snip magnet wires, bolt back on and wire magnet. No more bust knuckles trying to put on springs. Would have been 5 stars, but was looking on the back and "made in China", There is more reason to be buying and supporting china! What ever happened to Made In USA, and putting $$$$ in American pockets to support American workers?

  • Are 12" Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies Available Individually And Not As A Set?
    The Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-6 does include both the left and right assemblies but each side can also be purchased individually. The Left Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # AKEBRK-6L. The Right Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # AKEBRK-6R.

  • Left And Right Brake Assemblies For A 2011 Keystone Alpine 3500RE
    The Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # AKEBRK-6L & # AKEBRK-6R are great options for your 2011 Keystone Alpine Fifth Wheel. These brake assemblies will work with 14-1/2", 15", 16", and 16-1/2" diameter wheels, 5,200lbs, 6,000lbs, 7,000lbs axles, and measures 12" diameter, 2" wide. These brakes should work great for your 5th wheel as long as the brake assemblies on your current brakes are 12" in diameter and use a 5 bolt mounting pattern then these will work.

  • Will 12 Inch etrailer.com Brake Assemblies fit a Gulfstream Kingsport Trailer
    As long as the brake assemblies on your current trailer are 12 inches in diameter and use a 5 bolt pattern for mounting to the spindle the part # AKEBRK-6R is going to fit. Most likely that is what you have since trailer brake assemblies are typically all made to same industry standard specs and dimension in the weight range you have. I attached a review video for these assemblies for you to check out as well.

  • Is it a Good Idea to Replace Hub/Drum When Replacing Brake Assembly on Trailer
    If there is visible signs of wear then it is a good idea to replace the hub/drum with the brake assemblies. If the armature surface where the brake magnet is damaged, or if the area where the bearings ride is showing wear or is damaged it would be time to replace the hubs. If you had bearings go out in the hub and you continued to drive on them for a while, to the point where the hub is damaged it would be time for the hub to be replaced. To pick out replacement hubs you will need to...

  • Torque Spec for Tightening Trailer Brake Assemblies to Trailer Spindle
    The attachment bolts for a 5-bolt brake assembly like the part # AKEBRK-6R should be torqued to 30-50 foot/lbs. If you don't have a torque wrench handy, if you tighten the bolts until the lock washers flatten out, you'll be pretty darn close to that range.

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Brake Assemblies for a 5,400 lb Trailer
    To pick out the correct brake assemblies for your trailer you need to know a few things. You will want to measure the inner diameter of your hub/drums and the depth of the drums to determine what brake assembly dimensions you need. For example the part # AKEBRK-6R that you referenced is a 12 inch by 2 inch thick brake assembly. You also want to determine what the bolt pattern is of your assembly mounting flange. The standard size is 4 on 4 inch or 5 like the one you referenced. You also...

  • Trailer Brakes Getting Hot and Smoking on a 2006 Dutchmen Sportsman
    It sounds like the brake assembly got stuck and would not revert back after releasing the truck brakes. This could happen if there is a mechanical issue such as debris or corrosion causing the mechanism to bind up, or it could be an electrical issue such as a short that caused the magnet to stay stuck to the armature surface inside the drum. You will want to pull the hub and drum assembly off and inspect the inside of the drum. If the armature surface is gouged or discolored or if the...

  • Can I Install Brake Assemblies Upside Down
    We do not have any replacement 12" braking assemblies like part # AKEBRK-6R that have the back plate reversed or upside down. They are designed to have the brake magnet below the axle not above it so I cannot recommend installing them upside down or somehow reversing the backing plate. Axles have a bow in them that is designed to straighten out under weight. If the bow is orientated downwards then it could be negatively affecting the weight capacity of the trailer. I recommend to have...

  • Can TruRyde Electric Brakes Be Used on a Boat Trailer When Converting to Electric Brakes
    Traditionally, boat trailers used hydraulic surge breaks since electricity and water don't usually mix well. But we are seeing more and more boat trailers come out of the factory with electric brakes. The trailer brake assemblies I recommend for you are the etrailer.com Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # AKEBRK-6R for the Right Hand side and # AKEBRK-6L for the Left Hand side.

For instance the Electric Trailer Brake Assembly part # AKEBRK-6R you looked at goes on the passenger's side and puts the longer shoe in the rear. Part # AKEBRK-6L would be for the driver's side and will also put the long shoe in the rear.

  • 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...

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies For Axle Tek B12E-02 12-GG Right Hand Brake Assembly
    The Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # AKEBRK-6R will replace your individual right hand brake assembly. Assembly # AKEBRK-6L would be the matching left side. You can always upgrade to self-adjusting brakes with the Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-7-SA. These will give you better braking as they adjust as the shoes wear. The kit includes assemblies for one axle so you will have new brakes on both sides.

  • Merits of Replacing Drum Brakes vs. Rebuilding Drum Brakes
    We do offer all kinds of replacement brake parts for both electric and hydraulic drum brakes, including shoes, springs, actuating levers, etc. But many folks do determine, after reviewing all the parts needed and their total cost, that the time savings of simply replacing the entire brake assembly often makes that option preferable overall. Sometimes it does not even cost much more than replacing just the worn parts. Apart from cost and time to do the servicing there is also the benefit...

    I'm glad to hear they have done well for you over the last few years. You are correct, the Replacement Shoe and Lining Kit # AKBRKR-S-12 is the correct replacement part for your # AKEBRK-6R and # AKEBRK-6L brake assemblies. You will need to order two of these, one for each side. This part works for both the left and right side brake assemblies. I have attached a review video for your reference.

  • Recommended Replacement Electric Brake Assemblies for 12x2 Trailer Hub/Drums
    The # AKEBRK-6L and # AKEBRK-6R are compatible with standard 12x2 brake drums found on 5.2 to 7K trailer axles. The shape of the magnet won't have any bearing on the compatibility of the brake assembly with your current brake drums. These would be a good replacement, but to be honest I'd personally choose self adjusting brake assemblies like # AKEBRK-7-SA. If you don't care to reuse your existing brake assembly mounting hardware, we offer replacement hardware as part # BRKH12 which includes...

  • Why Would Fifth Wheel Trailer Brakes Lock Up Until Trailer Battery is Disconnected
    Sounds like your trailer has a breakaway system on that had the plunger pulled and now the brakes want to lock up as long as it is connected to a battery. Check out the help articles I attached on breakaway systems. They will help you identify where yours is at and help you test it. The switch would look like the part # 2005-P. Which if your plunger was pulled and was missing this would work well as a replacement to allow you to get your trailer going again.

  • Adjusting Power and Sync Settings on Draw-Tite Activator II Trailer Brake Controller
    The braking power you feel when using your trailer brake controller will depend on the power setting selected on the controller as well as the chosen setting on the Sync control. The sync determines the level of braking aggressiveness by changing how quickly the unit sends the chosen power level to the brakes. The other factor affecting braking force is the adjustment at each brake assembly. An electric drum brake like # AKEBRK-6R has a star wheel adjuster that can be adjusted using drum...
