Perfect for Boat Trailers

Kodiak disc brakes installed on a trailer

If you tow a boat trailer, live in a coastal area, or experience a lot of snow, slush, and salt on the roads, you know how corrosive salt and water can be. Because disc brakes last longer than drum brakes, you should consider how things like rust might impact your trailer over time.


The Dacromet coating on these brakes offers great corrosion protection, even with frequent use in freshwater and saltwater. It can withstand 300 to 400 hours of continual exposure to salt spray before corrosion begins, which is comparable to galvanized steel. And the KodaGuard coating on the calipers offers even better corrosion resistance, as it can withstand 500 to 600 hours of salt spray before rust forms. So - unless you're driving your trailer through water for 2 weeks straight with no chance for the brakes to dry - it'll be a while before any rust starts to form.


Get a Safer, More Comfortable Ride

Say goodbye to the days of your truck being pushed and pulled by your trailer. Disc brakes provide a safer, more comfortable ride than drum brakes. They offer shorter stopping distances and deliver consistent braking - even at highway speeds. So, you won't have to worry about things crashing around in your trailer or camper next time you reach unexpected traffic on the highway or debate if you can actually stop before that yellow light turns red.


Save Time and Money

More and more people are switching their trailers over to disc brakes. Not only do disc brakes provide more controlled braking than drum brakes, but they also save you money by having fewer parts to maintain.


diagram comparing the number of parts in drum brakes and disc brakes

Unlike drum brakes, which have springs, magnets, and shoes that may need to be continually adjusted or replaced, disc brakes are virtually maintenance-free. There are no springs, cables, or other little components that you'll need to worry about failing.


view of brake pads inside disc brake caliper

The brake pads will naturally wear down, so eventually you'll have to replace them. But these pads are also way easier to replace than drum brake shoes. The caliper - where the pads are housed - is located on the outside of the brake assembly. This means you just have to remove that one part to replace the brake pads rather than having to remove the entire assembly like you would with drum brakes.


close up view of vented rotor

This particular kit can save you time and money over other disc brakes on the market as well. A slip-on rotor may be easier to install initially, but water can find its way between the rotor and your existing hub, causing uneven rotor wear or runout. With a 1-piece hub-and-rotor assembly, water and debris can't get in to cause any corrosion or contamination.


In addition, vented rotors, like these, disperse heat faster than non-vented rotors. When brakes retain heat, they are more likely to experience brake fade, or loss of braking power. So even if you take your boat or camper out every weekend, these trailer brakes will continue to offer excellent performance throughout their long life.


mounting bracket supporting disc brake

Kodiak disc brakes have a unique caliper mounting bracket as well. The side-support design puts all of the weight on the mounting bracket instead of on the bolts. This reduces premature wear and extends the life of the bolts, further ensuring optimal performance.


Determining the Bolt Pattern

If you want to remount your existing wheels after installing these brakes, you'll need a kit that offers the same bolt pattern. To determine the bolt pattern, count the number of bolt holes (or lug nuts) on your trailer's wheel. This will give you the first number in the pattern. To find the second number, just measure the distance between a bolt hole and the bolt hole across from it.


diagram showing how to measure even bolt pattern

For example on wheels with an even number of bolt holes: 6 on 5-1/2" means 6 bolt holes with 5-1/2" from the center of 1 hole to the center of the hole across from it.


diagram showing how to measure odd bolt pattern

And with an odd number of bolt holes: 5 on 4-1/2" means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" from the center of 1 hole to the farthest edge of one of the 2 farthest bolt holes.

Finally completed the installation after dealing with a useless set of mounting hardware - see separate review. Recommending getting your own mounting hardware based on the dimensions of what you have to work with for axle mounting brackets.
Otherwise, the installation went together fine. Recommended watching the videos available on the website.
The hardware looks top quality. Awaiting road test.

These brakes have turned out well for me, as expected. They are so much more reliable and maintenance free than my old drum brakes. Make the changeover - pretty sure youll be glad you did.

I was hoping I would get completed order but I was very disappointed that the grease seals lug nuts cape arrived today but no brakes. I was giving only one tracking number and was expecting full order.

I am so glad you let us know about this. Our team is on it and the parts should be on their way soon if they arent already!



by:

Brakes bolted right up on my 2001 DHM boat trailer, replacing the UFP brakes which were badly worn. The Kodiak brakes are great quality and ETrailer customer service was phenomenal. The original bearing buddies were badly worn so I installed the caps which came with the kit, but I will be ordering new bearing buddy caps soon.

Product was as advertised. Not impressed with koda gaurd chipping on calipers. Coating seems thin and not very durable

Great value and all-in-one solution for boat trailer brakes.



by:

Haven't installed yet. looks as expected. Shipping was great, even though I ordered an out of stock item the communication was fantastic and arrived when they said it would. The box it came in had nice handle cuts in it for handling, It was actually still square when I received it. Nice quality work by all.

Parts showed up just as represented on the site. Everything fit up and works great.

wit out operating the trailer and it will not be used until the lake has lost it's ice in late April I will not know until then. Right now the snow in the driveway keeps me from even installing the brakes.

  • Replacement Disc Brakes for 2013 EZ Loader Adjustable Boat Trailer
    After speaking with EZ Loader what you have on your trailer is a 3,700 lb axle. From what they said the axle was upgraded even though your overall trailer capacity is 3,100 lbs. Although this uses the same # L44649 outer and # L68149 inner bearings, the grease seal listed for the # DE89YR won't match up since it has a larger inner diameter. You will need to use the # 168255TB to get it to work. The bearings on the Kodiak # KOD49FR you were looking at would also fit your spindle. However,...

  • How to Determine Correct Replacement Disc Brakes When Switching From Drum
    To go from hydraulic drum brakes to disc brakes you need to know your axle capacity as well as the bearing numbers. You will need to take apart your current hub assembly and look at the bearings themselves; wipe away the grease and you should be able to see the part number stamped directly on them. If you are unable to find them, you need to use a digital caliper measure your spindle to the thousandths of an inch where the bearings ride. For example, if you have a 3,500 lb axle with inner...

  • Recommended Replacement 10" Disc Brake Kit for a Coyote Trailer for Saltwater Application
    Thanks for reaching out, Sam! The Kodiak Disc Brakes # KOD59FR with the Dacromet/KodaGuard are definitely a solid choice, but the hub-rotors and brackets only have a 300- to 400-hour salt spray rating and the calipers have a 500- to 600-hour salt spray rating. At the very least I recommend using the DeeMaxx Disc Brake Kit # DE66YR because everything has the Maxx Coating that has over 1,000 hours salt spray rating.
