Driver's-side electric brake is 12" x 2". Durable friction material provides improved braking and longevity. Dacromet-coated backing plate is supremely corrosion resistant. Fits 14-1/2", 15", 16", and 16-1/2" wheels.


Features:

  • Electric brakes are easier to install and offer more user control than hydraulic brakes
    • Requires only an electric brake controller (sold separately) - no actuator or hydraulic lines necessary
  • Automotive-grade friction material is molded to brake shoes
    • Pads are fully bonded - not riveted - to shoes for long life and more braking torque
    • Less chance of cracking and crumbling that can lead to mechanical lockup, thanks to tapered edge and circular grinding
  • Periodic manual adjustment required
    • Fine-tooth brake adjustment gear allows for a more precise setting
  • Dacromet coating on backing plate offers superior corrosion resistance
  • Adjuster plugs (included) cover access holes to keep dirt and grime out of the assembly and off of the shoes
  • Mounting bolts and hardware (BRKH12S) sold separately
  • QAI and CSA certified


Specs:

  • Application: most standard hub-and-drum assemblies, including Dexter, Lippert (LCI), and AL-KO
  • Configuration: left hand (driver's side)
  • Dimensions: 12" diameter x 2" wide
  • Mounting flange bolt pattern: 5 bolt
  • Wheel size: 14-1/2", 15", 16" and 16-1/2"

  • Limited 1-year warranty


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.

Bolted right up to my Dexter axle, no issues at all with installation. Paint coating appears very nice. This is a very economical way to replace your brakes and magnets.

Good parts, great service

Excellent service

Worked perfect for our 28ft v nose race trailer.

Great service and quick shipping.
Good
fit and stopping just fine now!
I replaced the original brakes, grease seals and bearings on a 2013 3 axle toy hauler because they looked rough and I was preparing for a 4-5 month vacation on the road.
Etrailer is my go-to favorite place.

1 year later and all is good with the brakes, bearings and grease seals I replaced.



by:

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



by:

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!

Great product, great price, and was shipped in a timely manner. Etrailer is the best online shopping for your trailer and towing needs. I have been very pleased with their products and customer service.



by:

Lightning fast shipping! Emily was very knowledgeable about the trailer brake products I was buying and saved me about $100.00 in the process. etrailer definitely has my business from now on.



by:

Odelia did a GREAT job with helping me as I have never done a electronic break system before... I had NO clue what I was getting myself into. 3 hours after I received the parts the owner picked it up and he had breaks. Mind you I have about 10 to 14 hours into the job. I needed to do it correctly and made sure everything was spotless clean. Every nut was torqued and everything was adjusted to perfection. I run a shop that has 30 to 60 people and I wish Odelia was part of our staff. Odelia was very easy to talk to and very knowledgeable about the product. Please tell Odelia I appreciate on how much she helped a new customer as she was outstanding!!! Parts had GREAT packaging no damage.

Fit perfect

Thanks to Ashley D who got me a product in stocked that worked perfectly. Ashley was so very helpful on the phone with my questions. Your video on how to install and adjust was great for a non mechanic



by:

Fits as described



by:

Quality seems to be good. We'll see how long the coating holds up - it looks like some parts are just painted with silver versus plated.



by:

Brakes were easy to install, though I had never done so before, and appear to be good quality.

Works great

Super fast delivery. Although I have not yet installed them, the look to be well made.

  • Are There Replacement Brakes Compatible with a Mobile Home Axle
    The Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # AKEBRK-7R-D could potentially work on a mobile home axle, but it would depend on your axle. Not all mobile home axles are going to be the same and most will not be compatible with the # AKEBRK-7R-D. Mobile homes are typically designed for very limited use before components degrade with failure potential, this makes finding replacement parts very difficult. Often times mobile home axles have the brake backing plate welded directly to the axle tubing...

  • 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.

  • Left & Right 12" Electric Trailer Brake Assembly - Dacromet For 5,200 lb to 7,000 lb Axles
    The two parts individually are the Electric Trailer Brake Assembly - Dacromet - 12" - 5,200 lbs to 7,000 lbs - Right Hand # AKEBRK-7R-D & Left Hand # AKEBRK-7L-D. They come as a pair with the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Dacromet - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies # AKEBRK-7-D. The only other thing you'll need with these is the Mounting Bolts and Hardware for 12" Brake Assemblies # BRKH12.

  • Replacement Electric Brakes for 5,200 Pound Axle on a 2007 Coachman Adrenaline Trailer
    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 Dacromet...

  • 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...

  • Replacement Electric Brake Assembly To Replace The etrailer 12" x 2" Brake Assembly
    Yes, you can use the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly with Parking Brake # 23-112 to replace your current Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # AKEBRK-7L-D as long as your axle is a 6,000-lb axle. The Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # 23-112 also has a manual parking brake lever included. If you need new mounting hardware, you can use the Mounting Bolts and Hardware for 12" Brake Assemblies # BRKH12.

  • 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...
