When you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, deceleration occurs and momentum pushes your trailer toward the rear of your vehicle. With surge brake systems, the hydraulic actuator is triggered as your trailer moves forward, once your tow vehicle starts to slow down. When this happens, the actuator contracts, applying force to its master cylinder. This in turn supplies the necessary hydraulic pressure to engage your trailer's brakes.


Electric Reverse Lockout

The electric reverse lockout on this trailer brake actuator is automatically activated when you shift your tow vehicle into reverse. The solenoid wires into your trailer connector - which connects to your tow vehicle - so that it can detect when you are in reverse. When your vehicle is in reverse, the solenoid ensures that the hydraulic actuator does not activate your trailer's brakes, thus allowing you to back up your rig. To use the lockout feature, you must have a 5-pole flat, 6-way round, or 7-pole trailer connector.


eZ-Latch Coupler

The coupler portion of this trailer brake actuator features a simple-to-use latching mechanism known as the eZ-Latch. With this mechanism, hooking up is as easy as dropping the coupler over your trailer hitch ball. The latch does not need to be tugged or manually activated to allow the ball into the coupler socket, nor does it have to be secured in place. Just make sure that the coupler is properly lined up with the ball when you lower it, and the rest is automatic. Disengaging the coupler is just as effortless. Simply lift up the contoured handle and the coupler socket will automatically release its grip on the ball.


Demco eZ-Latch in Use

Sturdy, Corrosion-Resistant Construction

Made of sturdy steel, this hydraulic trailer brake actuator features a durable zinc finish that is designed to limit rust and corrosion. This finish has a 500-hour salt spray rating, making the actuator perfect for marine use. Even the master cylinder is made of a corrosion-proof composite to further ensure durability for marine applications. The eZ-Latch's sleek, ergonomically designed handle is also constructed of a durable composite material that's corrosion-proof, allowing it to withstand whatever the road and the elements dish out.

  • How to Tell if Demco 16K Hydraulic Actuator Can be Used as Replacement for Dexter UFP A-160 Actuator
    The Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator w Drop and Electric Lockout # DM8164311 is rated for disc brakes and it has the electric lockout so as far as compatibility goes those parts will match up. What you need to check on is the mounting bolt hole pattern. I've attached a photo showing the pattern for the Demco actuator for you to check out and compare with what you have. If the bolt holes match, great! If they don't you can either go with the actuator your trailer manufacturer recommends or...

  • Recommended Surge Brake Actuator W/ Drop To Replace 3 Bolt Actuator On Shorland'r Boat Trailer
    Thanks for the picture! I do have an option for you, but we do not have a surge brake actuator for disc brakes that uses 3 holes in the bottom flange like yours. Before replacing it with the Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator # DM8164311 you were looking at, you will need to verify the weight of your loaded boat trailer. This actuator is rated for 16000lbs so you will want to make sure that is close to your loaded weight as having a coupler too overrated can cause decreased braking performance...

  • How to Bleed Brakes and Install Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator with Electric Lockout DM8164311
    The solenoid on the Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator w Drop and Electric Lockout # DM8164311 will have two wires coming out of it, a ground wire and a power wire. You'll need to connect he power wire to the reverse circuit on the trailer connector. To ground the solenoid, you could either ground the wire to chassis (recomended) or connect to an existing solid ground connection. When your vehicle's in reverse, this solenoid will ensure that that hydraulic actuator does not activate your trailer...

  • Is There a Way to Manually Lock Out Demco DA91 Actuator
    You can use the manual lock out part # DM5939 to manually lock out the Demco DA91 actuator part # DM8164311 that you referenced.

  • Replacement Master Cylinder For a Demco DA16 Surge Brake Actuator
    Yes, the Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator # DM8164311 can support up to 3 axles with disc brakes. The current version does use a nylon Master Cylinder # DM5918. This master cylinder will replace your aluminum large bore master cylinder on your older DA16 actuator.

  • Will Masterlock Coupler Lock Fit Demco EZ Latch Surge Actuator
    Yes, since the Masterlock coupler latch lock part # 2847DAT has a 1/4 inch diameter and has a usable span of up to 2-3/4 inches it would fit and work well on the Demco EZ latch style of surge actuator # DM8164311. I attached a review video for this lock for you to check out as well.

  • Replacement Disc Brake Coupler for Load Rite Trailer Part 6080.44
    The Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator w Drop and Electric Lockout - Disc - Zinc - 2-5/16" Ball - 12.5K # DM8104311 will work well as a replacement for your trailer as long as the capacity of the trailer is not greater than 12,500 lbs. My research showed that part rated for 16,500 lbs, so if you need a larger capacity coupler I recommend the Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator w Drop and Electric Lockout - Disc - Zinc - 2-5/16" Ball - 16K # DM8164311 or the 20K # T4750520. These are bolt on replacement...

  • Which Demco Surge Disc Brake Actuator for Trailer that Weighs 12k
    If you are absolutely sure you'd never be over the 12k number you listed a 12.5k actuator like the Demco part # DM8104311 would work great. I really like how easy to use the EZ latch couplers are of the Demco actuators. If you wanted extra capacity just for a little peace of mind Rick going with the higher rated Demco EZ Latch actuator part # DM8164311 would be a great option too. There's really no downside to having more capacity than needed also.

  • Replacement Options for Titan Model 20 Brake Actuator for Disc Brakes
    You can replace your old Titan Model 20 with the current version of this brake actuator. If you do not need an electric lockout the correct replacement is the # T4750700. If you need an electric lockout, or would like to add it while you're redoing the trailer, then you can use the # T4750720. If you are adding electric lockout you will also need to add a 5-way to the trailer like the # HM47900 as well as the Curt Adapter # C57187 on your vehicle.

  • Replacement 5-Way Wiring and Surge Brake Actuator for Zieman Boat Trailer
    Thank you for reaching out and the photos! From what I'm seeing it looks like you need the Dexter Axle Disc Actuator 12.5K # T4749620 or 20K # T4750520 depending on the weight rating of your current actuator. These have similar coupler features, include the electric lockout, and are weld-on applications so you'll have to have your current setup cut off and this welded in it's place. We have some parts for drum brakes as well but they are a little different so if you have drum brakes on...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Hitch For Towing a 12,000LB Boat Trailer With Surge Brakes
    I recommend using a Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution hitch to connect your 2020 Ford F-150 and your triple axle boat trailer. You will most likely need a Pole Tongue Adapter # EQ95-01-5950 which will attach to a tongue 1"-5" wide and 2"-5" tall. You will need to select the correct weight distribution from the list below depending on your tongue weight when loaded. If you are unsure we do have a Tongue Weight Scale # e99044 you can use to verify the weight so you get the correct system. 800-1,200lbs...

  • Hubs and Disc Brakes For a MagicTilt Boat Trailer With 6,000LB Axles
    The Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # 8-213-51UC1-EZ is what we have for the part number PD2550-L but you will need the Grease Seal # GS-2125DL to replace the larger seal in the kit. Each pair of hubs will use these Bearing Buddy Protectors # BB2441SS instead of the PF1102 which is for a different size hub bore. The Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator # DM8164311 is the exact same as the part number PG1094. The DeeMaxx Disc Brake Kit # DE28YR will work in place of the PG2033. And these will...
