Self-adjusting driver-side electric brake is 12" x 2". Brake pads are made of durable friction material for improved braking and longevity. E-coated backing plate resists rust. Fits 14-1/2", 15", 16", 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
  • Self-adjusting brake does not require periodic manual adjustment like standard brakes
    • 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
  • Mounting bolts and hardware (BRKH12S) sold separately
  • QAI and CSA certified

  • Mounting flange bolt pattern: 5 bolt
  • Wheel size: 14-1/2", 15", 16", and 16-1/2"

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.

I purchased the brake assemblies last spring but did not get around to installing on our 5th wheel trailer this past fall. Packaging was sufficient & all parts were there & in place on the backing plates.The install went well, brakes are working good.I looked up online a brake in procedure for the shoe assemblies & followed it which helped out after the install.Overall I'm pleased with the price of the product,the service from etrailer aswell.

These brake assemblies are cost-effective and work great, and they're easy to install. I replaced all four on my old car trailer and I'm very happy with them. I did an [online] video of my installation.Packing for shipment seemed a little bit marginal, but obviously sufficient as they made the trip undamaged. Note that this purchase was made in June of 2016 (it's now February 2021) so the packing protocol may be different. I'd buy again in a minute.

Great customer service over the phone with Noah! My 4400 lb. axle parts were not listed when searching by my trailer but this backing plate was an exact match. Quality product, a very inexpensive way to fix a greasy mess and fast shipping. These guys have customer service figured out! Thanks!

It's taken 3 years and replacing all 4 brake assemblies to finally solve the brake problems I've had on my 5 wheel. These brake assemblies are good quality and unlike the original brake assemblies they replaced on my Heartland Torque 5th wheel are well assembled.

I'm probably not the best mechanic that there is but these brake assemblies were very easy to install,it probably took me about an hour per wheel to install,great service from a person named Michelle that helped me to get them shipped quickly,thanks, I would definitely recommend this company for all of your trailer parts....

To team etrailer, So far,so good. The complete units were easy to install, although some of the brake assembly units were out of place and had to be reset from shipping and ruff handling. Here are some pictures of the 44 ft pace rig. We have already recommend you to many of our peers. We travel to about 20 events per year and in all kind of traffic conditions, we will let you know how they slow down the unit. Thanks Al and Matt Team Hotblade jet dragster

The brakes arrived quickly, and they were the ones I needed for my camper. The only thing that was less than perfect was that the adjuster on one had fallen out and come apart. I re-assembled it and re-installed it. I suspect this happened in transit, the box did have some damage to it.

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.

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.

I don't usually do product reviews but wanted to post this one. This was my first purchase from etrailer. I purchased all four brake assemblies for our 5th wheel which I felt was the easiest and best way to go and had my drums machined. It was a very easy transaction, the parts came quickly and fit as they should. Very pleased with the product although I have not put the trailer on the road yet. BUT- The packaging was very poor. The assemblies were in a carton twice as big as it needed to be without adequate packing and the items rattled around to the point that two shoes were knocked out of place on the backing plates. I was able to correct it and no damage done, this time. Please improve your packaging. I would definitely buy from etrailer again.

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!

  • Replacement Brakes and Hub/Drum Assembly for 12" AxleTek Brakes
    The correct replacement brakes for your application are the Left Assembly # AKEBRK-7L-SA and the Right Hand Assembly # AKEBRK-7R-SA. For a hub/drum assembly you should be able to use part # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K which is the matching piece to the brakes listed above, but you'll want to confirm first that you have the inner bearing # 25580, outer bearing # 15123, and that your grease seal has a 2.25" inner diameter.

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies for a 7k Trailer Axle with Worn Brake Magnet
    Judging by the picture of your assembly and the magnet now would be a great time to replace your assemblies. Also based on the capacity of the axle and the bolt pattern I can see in the picture you would want the part # AKEBRK-7L-SA for the left hand side and part # AKEBRK-7R-SA for the right hand side. These are both self-adjusting assemblies. The magnet on your assembly has definitely seen better days, but a trailer brake magnet won't firmly grab something metal unless there is current...

  • 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...
