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 Trailer Brakes AKEBRK-7L-D Review

Today we're going to take a look at the 12 inch left hand, driver's side brake assembly for 7,000 pound axle. This has a DACROMET finish, now these electric brakes are easier to install, they offer more user control than hydraulic brakes. Electric breaks will only require an electric brake controller, we do sell those separately on our website. There is no actuator or hydraulic lines necessary. Now the DACROMET coating on this which is used in marine applications a lot provides a nice superior corrosion resistance for freshwater or saltwater use. The size on this is a 12 inch by 2 inch and this is the left hand, driver side brake assembly.

The size when they're saying 12 inch by 2 inch, what they are saying is the 12 inch is the diameter from the shoe to shoe right across, so if we put a ruler on that, edge to edge, you can see it's 12 inches. The 2 inch would be the width of the pad on the shoe so right at 2 inches, so 12 inch by 2 inch. Again, this is the left hand driver side. When you do receive new brake assemblies they usually have a sticker that will show left hand or right hand side. Now if by chance there's no stickers on it the easiest way to look at a brake assembly and tell what side it goes on of the trailer, is look at the size of the pad on the shoe. If you look here you can see the pad goes all the way from here all the way up to here and here the pad goes from here to here.

This is the shorter shoe this is the longer pad. The shorter pad will always . Is the primary shoe so that will always face the front of the trailer. If this is the shorter one and that's the front of the trailer you can see that goes right on the left hand, driver's side of the trailer. Now these brake shoes are lined with an automotive grade friction material. This friction material is fully bonded to the shoe, it's not riveted, it gives you a lot longer life, more braking torque.

The lining they also do a tapered edge on the lining and then they do a circular grinding of the material also and that helps prevent cracking and crumbling that can lead to mechanical lock up. Now these are manual adjusted breaks, you can see the gear down here that you turn to adjust them, so it does require periodic manual adjustment. Nice thing on this, the gear that you use to adjust is a fine tooth gear so that allows for a more precise setting when you're adjusting your brakes. There is no break-in period of the brake assemblies. Now, when you go to adjust them, you go to the back here and you go to the bottom where the adjustment hole is. Nice feature on this assembly, you notice it has a plug in it.

The adjuster plugs are included with this assembly, some brake assemblies will just leave that hole open and you really don't want to do that because you can get dirt to go in there and cause problems. This one does come with the adjuster plug installed. You just pop that off, put your tool though there, access the gear, turn that gear in or out, whichever you need to adjust it to your application. Now if you notice this is designed to fit a 5 bold mounting flange, so you want to make sure the mounting flange on your axle is a 5 bolt. Now the mounting bolts and the lock washer are all sold separately, we do sell those on our website and they are listed on this product page as a related product. This brake assembly is certified by USSAE standards and CSA which is the Canadian standards. Dimensions again are 12 inches, by 2 inches, axle it fits on is a 7,000 pound axle and these do use the 12 inch brake drums. Now these are electric brakes so it does need power sent to the magnet and you'll notice the 2 wires that come out the back the 2 black wires. One of these will connect to the brake feed to supply power to the magnet and one to the ground, and are both black wires so either wire can be used for either function, doesn't matter which one's which. That should do it for the 12 inch left hand, electric brake assembly for the 7,000 pound axle with the DACROMET finish.

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.

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! 563161

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. 278868

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

Everything was good. I had to re drill some of the mounting flange holes on the trailer, but this is a very old trailer that had surge brakes on it, so that's not bad at all. 559019

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

  • 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...

  • 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...
