Self-Adjusting Brake Doesn't Require Routine Adjustment

Standard electric brake assemblies require manual adjustment of the brake shoes over time to provide longer-lasting and more efficient braking performance. With self-adjusting brakes, the brake shoes are always properly aligned, so there's no need to manually adjust the brakes after the initial adjustment. As a result, you get optimum performance without having to take the time to continually perform this type of maintenance.


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-SA Review

Today we are going to take a look at the 12 inch left-hand self-adjusting electric brake assembly for a 7000 pound axle. Now these are electric brakes. They are a lot easier to install and offer more user control than hydraulic brakes. Now the electric brakes require only an electric brake controller, which we do sell separately on our website. There is no actuator or hydraulic lines necessary. Now the brake shoes on these assemblies are lined with an automotive grade friction material. This friction material is fully bonded.

It is not riveted to the shoes. It gives a longer life and more braking torque. The linings on these have a nice tapered edge to them, along with a circular grinding on the material, and they do this to prevent cracking and crumbling that can lead to mechanical lock-up of the brakes. Now this example is a self-adjusting brake, and you can tell that by this steel cable right here. It goes around a pulley and connects to this lever that controls the star wheel adjuster right down here. Now a self-adjusting brake does not require periodic manual adjustment like standard brakes.

The gear on this is a fine-tooth brake adjustment gear. It allows for a more precise setting, and there is no break-in period needed following your initial adjustment, so when you install these self-adjusting brakes, once you install them, you'll do the initial brake, and then it will self-adjust them as you go. Now the backing plate on this is an E-coated finish, and it will help resist wear and corrosion. One thing I wanted to show you also on the back here at the very bottom, there are always holes in a brake assembly that you can get a tool into to adjust the brakes, and there are plugs that should be in those holes. Some of them don't have plugs in them. Now these will come with the plugs, and the plugs are important because you don't want dirt getting in there.

Once you put a drum on this brake assembly, you don't want dirt getting in there and causing any damage, so these do come with the adjuster plugs already installed. Now the mounting bolts, the nuts, and the lock washers that install this to your brake mounting flange, they are sold separately on our website. They are not included. Now this brake assembly is certified for QAI, which is Quality Assurance International, and CSA, which is Canadian Standards Association. The size on this is a 12 inch by 2 inch driver side electric trailer brake assembly. The driver's side is the left-hand side of the trailer. Now when they say 12 inch by 2 inch, what they are saying is 12 inch diameter and then 2 inch width of the pad.

Just to give you an idea, if we put a ruler on this, edge to edge is 12 inches and the width of the lining itself is 2 inches, so 12 inches by 2 inches. Now to determine what side this goes on, they do come with stickers that say left-hand side or driver's side, but the easy way to tell if that sticker came off is just look at the lining on the shoe. If you see, the lining here is a lot longer and over here the lining is a lot shorter. The shorter shoe will always go towards the front of the trailer, so if you turn it this way, there is the front of the trailer and that means it's the driver's side or left-hand side. Now this is for an axle rating of 7000 pounds. Again, these are self-adjusting. They do fit on a five bolt brake mounting flange, and if I turn it, in the back here you can see there are the five holes. You want to make sure the brake mounting flange on your axle has the five holes that this will bolt up to. This is designed to use 12 inch drums, and these are electric brakes. It uses the electric magnet here, so you have to supply power to that magnet, and that's why these two wires are shown here in the back. They're both black wires. One will connect to the brake feed to supply power to the brake and the other to ground. Either wire can be used for either function. It doesn't matter which one is for which. That should do it for the review on the 12 inch left-hand self-adjusting brake assembly for a 7000 pound axle.

Ordered 2L and 2R replacement brake sets along with but/washer/bolt replacements. Received 1L & 1R and all nut/washer/bolts-20. Enough to do all 4 replacement brakes. Called and found out that only 1 of each wash typed in. I did get free shipping and they did correct the order, again with free shipping. The first set had been bounced around because the shoes werebout of alignment. I had watched a youtube.com video to see how they went on, so i knew what to do to fix the problem. My ego did not allow me to call and complain. I figured that if you can replace the brakes, you should know how the should look and howbto make them fit. So etrailer.com I suggest that they need to improve the packaging. The next guy may not be able to figure out what to do.... Nor should he. I have the first set on and this weekend the second set will be fitted. Plan a head on the project. Do 1 at a time and photo how you remove so you can get them back on easier. This is a messy job. Use a paint tarp to keep grease off your driveway. Have several cans of brake cleaner - really cuts thenold grease. As long as you have the hubs off, re pack your bearings. I was not prepared. I will have to do a better repacking before rolling out next spring. Don't forget to get bearing seals because you WILL destroy the old ones getting them off. Happy camping! 289809

Good product, works great when you get it installed and adjusted. Had a tough time adjusting the drag of the brake shoes the first time. The adjuster was very difficult to hold off the automatic lever and adjust at the same time. I also had to adjust a few weeks ago and I should not have had to do that! Time will tell 636586

The best customer service I've ever experienced. Everyone I dealt with went above and beyond to help save our weekend plans. I was getting our Toy Hauler ready and noticed grease on my brake drum.

The brake assemblies and drum/Hubs were a perfect fit thanks to etrailer customer service taking the time on the phone to make sure I measured and ordered the correct parts. I made two mistakes during installation. Put a left brake assy on right side and had to take everything off again. Although they were packed tight, because of rough shipping one brake shoes self adjustment cable (the last one I installed) was disconnected and had to be re-connected, and since I did not inspect all the parts before beginning (second mistake) I had to look on etrailer's web site to see how it was assembled. It took time out of the job and grease on my laptop. If you don't make mistakes, it is EASY. Thanks etrailer. 499763

Excellent product. I last moved my camper 5 months ago and that was 7 months after I installed the brakes. They were working perfectly at that time. I did mess up and pinch the electric brake wire between the axle and the brake creating a short. The wire is black, so is the brake and everything else down there, and I was working in a low light condition so I didn't see it. I was able to repair it. Watch out for that. 433037

  • Replacement Brakes Needed for AxleTek Trailer Axle B12E-02 12-GG
  • We do carry the exact brakes that you need for your B12E-02 AxleTek 12-GG Axle. For the Left Assembly you will want part # AKEBRK-7L-SA and for the Right Hand assembly you will want part # AKEBRK-7R-SA. These brake assemblies are made by AxleTek and measure 12 x 2 inches. These assemblies come in a quantity of 1 so you will want to order 2 of each. I have attached a video of these brake assemblies being installed that you can use as a reference.

  • Replacement Self Adjusting Brake Assemblies for Lippert 7k Axles
  • Self adjusting brake assemblies have no downside. They are the preferred brake assembly style as they require no adjustments. The part # AKEBRK-7L-SA is the correct left hand side assembly for your trailer with 7k Lippert axles. For the right hand side you'd then want the part # AKEBRK-7R-SA. For grease seals you then would want the part # RG06-070. For bolts you'd need the part # 38N and for a washer part # 38LW.

  • Replacement 12x2 Inch Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies for 7,000 Pound Axles
  • Yes, there are other options for 12x2 electric brake assemblies for 7,000 pound axles. If you want self adjusting brakes you can use # AKEBRK-7L-SA for the left and # AKEBRK-7R-SA for the right. If you want manual adjust brakes use # AKEBRK-6L for the left and # AKEBRK-6R for the right. If you are looking for something more corrosion resistant you can use the dacromet versions # AKEBRK-7L-D for the left and # AKEBRK-7R-D for the right.

  • I checked with Lippert and their 6k axle uses the bearing numbers # 15123 and # 25580. Because we know that we know that the hub drum part # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K which includes bearings. For assemblies you would want the part # AKEBRK-7L-SA for the left hand side and part # AKEBRK-7R-SA for the right hand side.

  • What would I Need to Upgrade from 3,500 lbs Tandem Axles to 5,000 lbs Tandem Axles

The axle-less system mounts to your trailer frame and takes the place of your old axle and springs.# ASR5200S01 is a straight spindle design.

  • Wheel/Tire, Hub and Drum, and Brake Assembly Recommendation for Timbren Axle Less Kit TASR5200S03
  • For a brake drum to fit the Timbren kit part # TASR5200S03 that you referenced you would want the part # 8-201-5UC3-EZ. Then for a matching assemblies you would need # AKEBRK-7R-SA and # AKEBRK-7L-SA for either side. The part # AC225R6SM would be a great fitting wheel and tire combo that has a 2,540-lb max load at 65 psi for each wheel/tire.

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies for 5k Axles that Need New Brake Shoes
  • Picking out replacement brake shoes is somewhat difficult without knowing the brand and/or part number of the brake assemblies. Typically it just becomes easier to replace the assemblies as that is very easy to do. All you have to do is find the correct side and capacity assemblies and then you would be able to bolt them right on. Since your assemblies are 5k I can't recommend the part # AKBRKR-S-12. Based on your 5k axle rating you would have a 12 inch assembly that uses a 5 bolt mounting...

  • Replacement Hub/Drum and Self-Adjusting Brake Assembly Recommendation for a Lippert 5,200 lb Axle
  • For a hub/drum that will fit your Lippert 5,200 lb axles you would want the hub part # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K that have the same 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern you said you have. For a self-adjusting brake assembly for the right hand side you would want the part # AKEBRK-7R-SA and for the left hand side you would want the part # AKEBRK-7L-SA. That would be all that you would need. I attached review videos for the hub and brake assemblies for you to check out as well.

  • Do Nev-R-Adjust Brakes and Self-Adjusting Brakes Work the Same Way
  • Nev-R-Adjust is Dexter's specific trade name for self-adjusting brakes like # 23-458 and # AKEBRK-7L-SA. Self-adjust and Nev-R-Adjust are the same type of brakes. After their initial adjustment both will automatically maintain correct braking pressure. With self-adjusting brakes, the brake shoes are always properly aligned, so there's no need to manually adjust the brakes after the initial adjustment. As a result, you get optimum performance without having to take the time to continually...

  • Recommended Brake Assemblies And Hub Assemblies For Lippert 7,000 lb Axle
  • Thanks for the picture. For your 7,000 lb Lippert axle, I recommend the Electric Trailer Brake Assembly - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Right Hand - 5,200 lbs to 7,000 lbs, # AKEBRK-7R-SA, and for the left side the matching # AKEBRK-7L-SA. These brakes need to be adjusted when installed originally and then the self-adjusting system will take over and ensure you have proper braking within the assembly. For your hubs, I recommend the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 7,000-lb Axles - 12" Diameter...

  • Dexter 5,200 lb Trailer Hub and Drum Recommendation with 2.25 Grease Seal
  • The hub and drum assembly you will need is the # 8-201-9UC3-EZ which is designed for Dexter EZ Lube 5,200 lb axles like yours with 6 bolt patterns. Since you need the larger seal you would just need to swap out the seals of the hubs with the part # RG06-070. For a right hand brake assembly you would need the part # AKEBRK-7R-SA and then for the left hand side part # AKEBRK-7L-SA.

  • Recommended Replacement Brakes for a Jayco Eagle Superlite 31.5 RLDS 5th Wheel Trailer
  • I recommend going with our Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-7-SA. This kit includes both the Left and Right hand assemblies, which come with identifying stickers, and are rated for 5.2K - 7K axles. I have attached a picture to demonstrate that they have a 3-1/4" pilot hole diameter, 4 of the 5 bolt measurements are 2-1/8" center on center, and the last measurement is 3" center on center. These are self-adjusting brakes that will work great for your application. After the initial install...

  • How Much Travel Distance Is Recommended for Fender Clearance with Timbren Axle-less Suspension?
  • You can absolutely use Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System on a custom trailer application, however the instructions state that the axle-less systems are not recommended for triple applications. With whatever system you end up using, you will want to leave a minimum of 4-7/8 inches of clearance above the tires for the suspension travel. If you end up using these axles, I recommend the Trailer Hub/Drum Assembly - 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 12" - 8 on 6-1/2 - Galvanized,...

  • Comparing etrailer/AxleTek and Dexter Electric Brake Assemblies
  • The biggest difference between Dexter brake assembly # 23-459 and etrailer/AxleTek assembly # AKEBRK-7L-SA is the pad material. The Dexter assemblies use pads that are snapped off of a long strand of the material. The ones on the etrailer assemblies are cut. The benefit of cutting the pads to length is that they have clean edges and that means you won't see those fine line cracks in the material or pad corners breaking off so the pads last longer. The pads are also a little thicker...
