  • 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

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.

To team e-trailer, 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

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.

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.

Great product, Fast shipping, great price. Ordered these on 6/25/18 and received on 6/27. Installed them today without a hitch. Had I gone to a parts house and just bought the pads and a kit I would have spent nearly what I paid for these completely assembled ones.

I neglected to order these when I ordered my parts last year. Finally got around to doing the brakes on my gooseneck and two old ones were junk after disassembly. So I recommend ordering these. They are cheap enough and if you have them and don't need them your not out much. I now have some extras in my trailer parts box . Martha rocks and was very helpful and friendly. So far I am impressed by Etrailer.com. But do your homework, it is up to you to order what you need and order the correct parts. If you can handle this responsibility, you will have a much better experience. All the parts I ordered last year and this year came very fast and were the correct parts. I suggest you look over the "new completed" brake sets with backing plate to make sure they are assembled correctly. A spring put in backwards may cause adjusting problems later. One of my self adjusting brakes is not adjusting and I think I may have to pull it off and examine why? I should of done this on that last brake as I did on the others. Any maybe it will come around with some more use? Seriously at this time I am very happy with my shopping here. Fast shipping and friendly staff, but again do your homework and you can avoid a lot of problems with wrong parts or delays because of this. Regards, John.

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!

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.

Replacing the brakes on a 50 year old FAN camper. After being assured that it had 10 inch brakes by another company"s "expert" because it has a 3500# axle, I finally received the correct 12 inch brakes from eTrailer. They arrived very quickly, and packaged well. The installation went almost as easy as the very helpful online video showed. Only difference was I had to slightly tighten the brakes to slide the hub over them, even though they are self-adjusting once in service. I have never owned or worked on a trailer before, and the installation was relatively easy. Thank you to George J for the followup email within 24 hours of delivery.

Ordered 2 of these to replace the broken/grease soaked brakes on the right side of my 2018 Alpine 5th wheel RV. Had to make some minor adjustments to these so all of the parts on them lined up correctly, after that they were a perfect fit. I don't believe you could ask for an easier brake repair.

Junk. Over tightens the brake. I had 3. One keep over heating or locking up the brake. One wore out the shoes in about two weeks and damaged the drum.. One had the return spring brake in the first week. Then the adjuster fell apart and rolled around the drum..

The brakes on my 2002 Komfort 24-TS trailer were completely shot. I needed to replace the drums (cheaper than having them turned). I also needed to replace the electric brake assemblies and to upgrade them from manual to automatic adjusting. I called etrailer.com a couple of times to make sure I was ordering the rights parts and the phone reps were very helpful and courteous. The parts arrived on time and in good shape. I had everything I needed to complete the job. It took me all day to do all 4 wheels but I saved myself a whopping $1,000 over having the shop do the job.

Excellent Customer Service from the start! Kate M. Helped verify I was ordering the correct assemblies. The cost was very good comparably, my neighbor did his a few months ago, etrailer was 50% of what he paid! They shipped the day of the order and got to my house about 2 days faster than I Expected! I don't believe it could have gone smoother or better. Thank You Kate M., you were awesome!

Just received my order of new backing plate assemblies and some misc small parts. Ordered on line late Sunday night, confirmed I had ordered the right parts Monday morning before shipment went out. Customer service by phone was superb and the gal I talked with was perfect. Shipment was on my porch Friday afternoon. I did open box and inspect shipment that arrived completely intact/good shape and all looked good at this point. Not sure when will get to the brakes on the trailer but will post again when the job is done. So far nothing but good to say about Etrailer.com. Regards, John.

  • Parts Needed to Convert Boat Trailer with 6 Lug Hubs to Electric Brakes
    Based on the drum size and bolt pattern of the drums that you have now the correct brake assemblies you want to convert your trailer to electric brakes would be the part # AKEBRK-7R-SA and # AKEBRK-7L-SA and then for new hubs # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K and then you'd be set. These hubs are pre-greased too which means a less messy install. To wire up the brakes you'll want to use 10 gauge wire which we sell by the foot as part number # 10-1-1.

  • Which Wire is for Power and Which is for Ground on a Brake Assembly
    If the 2 wires at the back of your brake assemblies are not connected to anything, like in the attached picture of part # AKEBRK-7R-SA, then that is definitely your problem. You will need to splice in the wire that carries the brake controller signal from your vehicle to one of the wires on each assembly. The other wires for each assembly, as you mentioned, will need to be grounded to a clean, bare-metal surface on your trailer. Luckily for brake assemblies it doesn't matter which one...

  • Difference Between etrailer and Dexter Electric Brake Assemblies
    Etrailer Electric Brake Assemblies like the 12", Self Adjusting # AKEBRK-7R-SA referenced in your question are different than Dexter Brake Assemblies such as # 23-459. The biggest difference is the brake pad material used. Etrailer brake pads use thicker material, and while most pads are "snapped" during the production process, the pads on etrailer's assemblies are cut. This ultimately results in a cleaner, crack free edge that will help extend the life of the brake pads. The matching...

  • Which Axle is Best if Only One Axle of Tandem Trailer Has Brakes
    Which axle the brakes are on can make a pretty big difference. If they are on the front axle of a leaf spring suspension axle then that tends to cause a trailer to pitch forward. There are situations when it is more appropriate to have the brakes on the front axle. Basically if they are torsion axles the brakes need to go on the front. If they are leaf spring axles then they should go on the rear. I've linked an article on adding electric brakes to a trailer that you may find helpful...

    Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find anything useful about that hub/drum online. Both grease seals have the same 3.376 inch outer diameter, but the difference is the inner diameter of the seal. The best way to find what you need is to get the diameter of the spindle where the grease seal would ride. If that diameter is about 2.125 inches, use the # GS-2125DL. If the spindle surface where the seal would ride is 2.250, use # RG06-070.

  • Recommended Brake Assemblies And Hub Assemblies For Lippert 7,000 lb Axle
    Thanks for the picture.
