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 Kit Review

Hey guys, it's Jake here with e-trailer. Today we're going to be taking a look at and show you how to install the e-trailer electric brake set up.This is going to be a drum set up. If you need just the one side, you can pick up a single, but they do come in a pair also. Now, what's really nice about this brake setup is it's going to have a Dacromet coating on it, which is going to help resist further against that rust and corrosion. So, you're going to be able to use it in many different applications, even marine applications. It's going to stand up to that constant exposure to water.Now, these brakes are going to be manually adjusted, so you're going to be able to adjust them to whatever you might be hauling.

You're just going to pop out this plastic cap here, and make your adjustments on the inside.These brakes are going to apply to most standard hub and drum assemblies. The dimensions of them are going to be 12 inches in diameter and two inches wide. The mounting flange bolt pattern is going to be a five volt. The wheel size that these brakes are going to fit on is going to be 14 and a half, 15, 16, and 16 and a half, and be able to work with axle ratings of 5,200, 6,000, and 7,000 pounds.Now, although these brakes are going to be just like your standard drum brakes, they are going to have that extra coating, so if you find yourself going into wetter conditions, such as marine applications, these might be a better option for you. Now that we've gone over some of those features, let's go ahead and show you how we got them installed.We went ahead and ripped off the old brakes and hubs, so we can get our new ones in place.

Match up the bolt pattern. Slide it into place, making sure you're not smashing down your wiring in the back. Just a little tip: You'll see here it says, "right hand side," but in case these stickers are missing, your magnet will always be on the bottom and your bracket will always be facing to the front of the trailer. We can go ahead and get our nuts in place.You want to reuse the nuts that came off your old brakes because you'll reuse them here. Now we'll take a 9/16 socket and tighten them all down.

You want to make sure you go in a star pattern so that it tightens it evenly.We can go ahead and get our wires matched up on the back. They're not going to matter which one you wire to which, so we'll go ahead and take our butt connector and our other wire through from our trailer. inaudible 00:02:44 down, give it a little tug, and we'll do the same for this other wire. I would recommend using heat shrink butt connectors, because these wires will be outside and exposed to the elements, and this'll make sure it stays nice and clean.We're going to be putting new hubs on with our new brake system. We don't want the scoring that the magnet can cause to mess with our new system.

We'll go ahead and slide it in place.And then you want to pack grease into your bearing, and you slide it in. Then, you can slide on your washer. Then, you want to thread on your nuts. Then you want to take a pliersTighten it down, then loosen it up. Tighten it back up. Loosen it up again, and then just turn it until it wants to stop. And then you want to back it up just a hair.And then, what you want to do is test it out. Make sure it spins. And then you want to rock your hands back and forth on the hub to make sure it's got no play in it. Now this setup we have here has a little cage that goes over the end and clips onto the nut. Yours may have a cotter pin.So what you want to do is you'll take your cap, you can tap it on with your hand, and take a block of wood so you don't damage your cap, and tap it on the rest of the way.Here we go. Now we can go ahead and take our wheel, set it in place. Now, we can thread on her nut. Now we can go ahead and torque down our nuts. That'll do it for a look at the e-trailer electric trailer brake kit.

Purchased 4 sets of the brake assemblies to replace my worn out brakes on 7k Dexter axles. Perfect fit. The eTrailer price for the corrosion resistant units was better than I saw for the standard set anywhere else. I would definitely buy again 360502

the corrosion resistant backing plates are just what I was looking for and look to be of excellent quality. If these were available in self-adjust, that would be even better. I would have ordered some extra bolts, but that product is hard to locate while making a purchase. Perhaps a link on the backing plate details to the hardware such as the axle nuts etc. They are there, I saw them while clicking around but could not find them easily. Excellent customer service! 563162

Review from a similar etrailer Dacromet 12 Inch in Accessories and Parts


The backing plate bolted up easily. The wires were long enough to re-connect to existing wires. I have not pulled brake drum off this year yet, to see how it lasted a year, and 10K miles. 436573

Review from a similar etrailer Dacromet 12 Inch in Accessories and Parts


They seem like decent brakes They should have definitely been greased and lubricated where they needed to be. I was also expecting a little bit better packaging. When I received the brakes one of them fell apart during shipment and I had to put them back together. The cardboard paper didn't work so well. Other than that no big disappointment. 627916

Review from a similar etrailer Dacromet 12 Inch in Accessories and Parts


Parts arrived n a timely fashion and look to be correct for my application, (I have not installed them yet. The packaging was completely torn up and looks to have been taped back up by UPS. There was nothing inside the package with the backing plates to keep them from sliding around inside the box. there were slight scratches in the finish but nothing that would affect their performance. I am only giving a 4 star rating due to the poor quality of packaging. If the product had been fragile I question as to whether it would have arrived undamaged... 449521

Review from a similar etrailer Dacromet 12 Inch in Accessories and Parts


Replaced all the brakes on my horse trailer. product works fine with no problems. My only complaint is that when assembled no lubricant was applied to the points on the backing plate where the brake shoes rest. This required removing the brake shoes and remounting them before installing them. 476419

  • New 7K Trailer Axle to Replace a Lippert 6K Trailer Axle
    We have 7K options but they not a traditional straight axle. They are more like torsion axles that have their own built-in suspension and do not require an axle beam between the 2 sides. This design would then provide independent suspension! The most basic option is # TASR7KS01. It has brake mounting flanges but no hubs or drums. This allows you to select the hubs/drums and brakes you want. They do have the grease fitting for EZ lube hubs but you don't have to use EZ lube hubs. You can...

  • Replacement 12 x 2 Inch Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies
    The video for electric brake assembly # AKEBRK-7R-D is working for me so it could be the browser you are using. This sis a 12x2 inch brake assembly that uses the 5-bolt mounting pattern. It is designed for 7,000 pound trailer axles. The etrailer brakes do fit in place of comparable Dexter brake assemblies. For the matching left side assembly use # AKEBRK-7L-D.

    Electric trailer brakes for a 5,200 pound axle are going to be 12 x 2 inch. If you need to replace the drums we have several options, see link. But if your hub and drum assemblies are fine then you won't have to replace them. For 12x2 inch brakes that fit the 5,200 pound axle drums we have # AKEBRK-7L-SA and # AKEBRK-7R-SA for self-adjusting brakes. Or for manual adjust we have # AKEBRK-6L and # AKEBRK-6R. If you want some corrosion resistance for marine environments I recommend the...

  • Adding Electric Drums Brakes and New Hubs to Tandem Axle Trailer
    To match new hub/drums to your existing spindle/axle you need to match up the bearing set used. You can pull one of your existing hubs to check its bearings. New hubs must use the same inner and outer bearings as your current hubs. I have linked our main page for hubs and you can click on the particular wheel bolt pattern you want. You also need to match the hubs to the axle's weight rating, which usually appears on a sticker on the axle itself. If you cannot find hubs that use the same...
