Disc Brakes

More and more people are switching their trailers over to disc brakes, and with good reason. Disc brakes deliver consistent braking - even at highway speeds - unlike drum brakes, which often show a substantial drop in braking torque at higher speeds. In addition, disc brakes offer a substantially shorter stopping distance than drum brakes. Disc brake calipers have only one moving part, rather than the many found in drum brakes. This means that there are fewer parts to maintain, fewer parts to get damaged and fewer parts to have to repair or replace, thus reducing maintenance costs.


Integral Hub-and-Rotor Assemblies

The integral hub-and-rotor is made from cast iron, matching SAE specifications. Cast iron is ideal for high-temperature operations and offers a favorable friction coefficient to ensure adequate stopping power. Kodiak's rotors are vented to effectively dissipate heat, dramatically reducing the incidence of heat-related damage. Furthermore, machined disc brakes minimize the chance of contamination between the hub and rotor, resulting in excellent performance and long life.


Calipers

Kodiak calipers are constructed of stainless steel to prevent flexing and rust. Less flex means more braking torque, resulting in smooth, even braking every time. The corrosion-resistant stainless steel piston is 30 percent larger than standard pistons, ensuring shorter stopping distance and increased torque. In addition, the unique low-drag design of Kodiak's calipers allows the piston to retract farther than in most standard models, giving you a cooler-running brake.


Mounting Brackets

Designed for axles with 5-bolt brake flange configurations, the included mounting brackets are made of heavy-duty, corrosion-resistant stainless steel that is embossed to provide additional threading for guide bolts. The added thread strength ensures a tighter, more secure connection between the caliper and bracket. Another unique feature of Kodiak's brackets is the side-support angle, which guarantees that the load is carried by the bracket, rather than the bolts.

Video Transcript for Kodiak Trailer Brakes - Disc Brakes - K2HR526DS Review

Today we're going to review part number K2HR526DS. This is the Kodiak disc brake kit with the 12" hub and rotor. Has a 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern. These parts are made in a DACROMET finish and a stainless steel finish. It is designed to fit the 5,200 pound to 6,000 pound axles. Now these brake assemblies will make it easy to upgrade from drum brakes to disc brakes for better performance. With the disc brakes you'll get more consistent stopping even at highway speeds, and it will also give you dramatically shorter stopping distances.

Also, the maintenance costs are lower than for drum brakes because you'll have fewer moving parts to maintain, repair, or replace. Now the integral hub and drum assembly here is all one piece. It does minimize the lateral run-out to prevent warping because it's all one piece. It will provide a smooth ride because it's balanced as a hub and a rotor. It will use the industry-standard bearings and seals. Those are sold separately on our website.

The bearing races actually are pre-installed. Their outer bearing race is right in here, and the inner bearing race is already installed in there. Now it does use the vented design right here on the rotor you can see. Because of that, this will help effectively dissipate the heat that builds up, and this will prevent any heat-related damage to the rotor. The wheel studs are all included; it's 1/2" wheel studs. Now the lug nuts will be sold separately.

This will resist corrosion because it has a DACROMET plating on it. Now the calipers themselves right here, they are a stainless steel caliper, and they are self-adjusting for smooth equal braking. Now the stainless steel construction does not flex like a aluminum part. Has a low drag design, which means it will retract this piston further than any other calipers for a cooler running brake. The stainless steel piston itself is 2-1/4" in diameter. That's about 30% larger than a lot of the other brands.

Because of it being larger it will give you more braking torque than the competition. If you notice, it also comes with the high-performance ceramic brake pads all included. Now the brackets right here, these are also a DACROMET-coated mounting bracket, provides strength and durability. As you can see, it has the nice side-support design. This will ensure that the load is placed on the whole bracket, not just on the mounting bolts. Has some extra embossing right up here at the top for additional thread contact. This will ensure a tight, secure mount for your caliper guide bolts when you attach your caliper to the bracket. If you notice, this is a 5-bolt brake-mounting flange configuration, so you do want to make sure that your axle will have the 5-bolt flange configuration. Now if there is not a brake flange already on your axle, we do sell the weld-on brake flanges. They are sold separately on our website. Now basically this kit will include everything shown here: two full brake assemblies, the two DACROMET-plated cast iron rotor and hub assemblies, the two stainless steel calipers, the two DACROMET-plated caliper mounting brackets, and then the four stainless steel caliper mounting bolts. Now one thing I do want to mention is you might want to make sure that when you do change over to disc brakes, disc brakes do require a higher line pressure, about 1,500 psi, than the standard drum brakes. What you'll want to do is to achieve this pressure, it will require a brake actuator that has a 1,500 psi rating. Again, the specs on this: this does fit a axle capacity of 5,200 pounds to 6,000 pounds with the number 42 spindle. The wheel size you can use on this is 15" and larger. The bolt pattern is a 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern. Again, the wheel stud size is 1/2" so it does require 1/2" lug nuts. The rotor diameter is 12", and again on the brackets, it is used on a brake flange configuration of five bolts. That should do it for the review on part number K2HR526DS. This is the Kodiak disc brake kit with the 12" hub and rotor and the 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern. .

Bolted right on. It was half day job ripping the old drums off and installing these, they work flawlessly, been dipped in the ocean a few times now and no visible signs of rust yet. Sometimes I show off the effectiveness of the disc brakes to my friends. I have a 7,700lb boat and I'll only use my brake controller instead of my brake pedal going down steep hills. the trailer brakes quickly and effectively slow the GMC Yukon and boat by themselves with no vehicle brakes. I've attached photos of the old drums I tore out and a few phases of the install as well as the entire vehicle to see what I'm talking about. These brakes make all the difference in the world, not just because my drums were shot, but these brakes STOP on a dime. Enjoy! 284059

Do you have a question about this Trailer Brake?


  • Disc Brake Kit Recommendation for Boat Trailer with 6k Axles
  • Based on what you listed as having on your trailer axle the Kodiak Disc brake kit part # K2HR526D that you listed would be the correct kit. Since you said saltwater you might be more interested in the kit that has stainless steel rotors, calipers, and mounting brackets # K2HR526DS. You'll need to swap to a disc braker compatible surge brake actuator as well though since they require higher psi ratings than drum. For that the surge brake actuator part # T4750720 would work great as it...

  • Recommended Disc Brake Coating for Twice Yearly Salt Water Exposure
  • From lowest corrosion resistance to highest, the raw steel finish would offer no corrosion resistance whatsoever. E-coat, which is a cross between a painting and a plating process would offer a fair amount of corrosion resistance. Dacromet, which is a water based coating offers pretty good corrosion resistance. Stainless would offer the best. As long as you spray everything down very well after exposure, the Dacromet coated brakes would be an excellent choice for you, offering good protection...

  • What Would Cause Trailer Brakes to Lock Up When Trailer Wiring is Connected
  • Sounds like there's a short between the 12 volt accessory circuit which is hot all the time and the brake output circuit which activates the trailer brakes when there is voltage on the circuit. Test the voltage of your 7-way on your tow vehicle with a circuit tester like part # PTW2993 on the pin in the 5:00 position. This should only have power on it when the brakes are applied. If there is voltage here the short is on the vehicle side and most likely behind the connector. If there...

  • Does the Kodiak Disc Brake Assembly # K1HR526DS Come with Stainless Steel Backing Plate Brake Pads
  • Yes, the brake pads that are included with the Kodiak Disc Brake Assembly # K1HR526DS have stainless steel backing plates. The reason the part # K2HR526DS is twice as much as the part # K1HR526DS that you referenced is because the part # K1HR526DS is for on ONE disc brake assembly and the part # K2HR526DS is for a pair of them, or enough to do one axle.

  • Can Electric Brake be Used on a Boat Trailer
  • Electricity and water don't mix well, but we are starting to see more boat trailer manufacturers go with electric drum brakes. As long as you unplug the brakes before backing into water you should be fine. You would also need to let the assemblies dry before reconnecting them. From the looks of the picture you submitted it looks like you have the standard 4 bolt brake mounting flange. Next you would need to measure your current drums to pick out the correct assemblies.

  • Could Disc Brakes be Added to McClain ATT-2040 Boat Trailer
  • I was able to determine that your McClain ATT-2040 trailer has UFP axles that do not come with brakes installed so the first thing you have to do is determine if you have brake flanges on your axles. I attached a picture of what the flanges look like for you to check out as well as a help article on how to add brakes to trailer axles as well. The guides will walk you through adding either electric over hydraulic disc brakes or hydraulic brakes.
