Disc Brakes

An increasing number of trailer owners are switching over to disc brakes, and with good reason. Disc brake calipers have only one moving part, as opposed to the many moving parts you find with drum brakes. This means that with disc brakes there are fewer parts to maintain, fewer parts to get damaged and fewer parts to repair or replace, thus reducing the cost of maintenance.


Performance increases as well. 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 much shorter stopping distance than drum brakes.


Trailer Brake Actuator

Titan's complete disc brake kit makes the conversion easy. Designed for tandem-axle trailers, this kit includes not only the disc brake assemblies themselves - along with all the necessary lines, fittings and mounting hardware - it also contains a swing-away actuator. The swing-away design creates a convenient, space-saving, foldaway tongue, letting you easily store your trailer even in the smallest garage. This hydraulic brake actuator has a higher psi rating for disc brake applications and includes an electric reverse lockout so that you can back up without activating your trailer's brakes.


The electric lockout is automatically activated when you shift your tow vehicle into reverse. The included 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.


Hydraulic Line Kit

Note: If you intend to run brake lines along the axles of your trailer to install disc brakes - as is often done for boat trailers - you will need 2 additional hoses (T4890700 - sold separately) and 2 extra hose clips (T0776400 - sold separately) with brackets (T0776300 - sold separately) to complete the installation.

Ask the Experts about this Titan Trailer Brakes

Do you have a question about this Trailer Brake?


  • Is the Titan Disc Brake Kit # T4843400 Good For a Salt Water Boat Trailer
  • In the Titan disc brake kit, # T4843400, the hubs and calipers are silver cad plated, the actuator is zinc-coated, and the lines are all steel. This is not an ideal set up for a salt water application. The best option would be to go with stainless steel parts. You could start with Kodiak disc brakes, # K2R35S. For 2 axles you would need 2 sets. They fit 14 inch and larger wheels and will fit a hub with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. The rotors are the over the hub style. The actuator...

  • Converting EZ Loader Tandem Trailer to Disc Brakes with Titan Disc/Actuator Kit, Part # T4843400
  • You can convert your EZ Loader tandem boat trailer to disc brakes using the Titan Disc Brake and Swing Away Actuator Kit, part # T4843400, so long as it is compatible with your current trailer components. This kit is intended for tandem trailers with 3500-lb axles and wheels of 14 or 15 inches with a 5-on-4-1/2 bolt pattern and a 4-bolt brake flange. It uses inner bearing number L68149, outer bearing number L44649, and grease seal number RG06-050. You will need to check your current...

  • Comparing Titan Trailer Disc Brake Kits T4843200 and T4843400
  • There are several differences between Titan disk brake kit # T4843200 and # T4843400. The couplers are different. On T4843400, the coupler is a swing-away style. This requires that you cut the trailer tongue, bolt on the actuator, and when needed when storing, you can fold the actuator back. It also has a higher capacity actuator but both kits are rated for 3,500 pound axles. Other than that the parts are the same. Both kits use bearing # L68149 and # L44649. You will want to choose...

  • Does the Titan Disc Brake Kit and Swing-Away Actuator # T4843400 Come with Electric Reverse Lockout
  • Actually the Titan Disc Brake Kit and Swing-Away Actuator # T4843400 comes with an electric reverse lockout solenoid already so you would not need to add one to it. If you check out the picture I attached you can see the wires of the lock out solenoid that one wire would would need to get run to your reverse light circuit and the other ground.

  • What Position Should the Brake Calipers be Mounted when Installing Disc Brakes on a Boat Trailer
  • When installing the Titan Disc Brake Kit, # T4843400, you will want to install the caliper mounting brackets so that the brake calipers will be on the trailing side of the axle. I posted a photo showing the proper orientation of the calipers for you. We also have a disc brake installation video that you may find very helpful when installing this kit on your trailer, see link. The parts used in the video are different, but the installation procedure will be very much the same.

  • Information Necessary to Choose Disc Brake System for Boat Trailer
  • In order to make a recommendation for you, I'll need some more information from you. I'll need to know: -Dual or Tandem Axle? -Capacity of Axle -Number of Lugs and Bolt Circle of Existing Hubs -Wheel Diameter -Inner and Outer Wheel Bearing Reference Numbers From Existing Hubs -Were you Wanting an Electric Over Hydraulic Actuated System or a Surge Coupler Actuated System? -What Braking System Does Boat Use Currently? With this information, I'd be happy to make a recommendation.

  • Bearing Protector Grease Cap Installation on a Boat Trailer with EZ-Lube Spindles and Disc Brakes
  • When installing a disc brake kit, like the Titan Disc Brake Kit, # T4843400, on your boat trailer I recommend staying with the original EZ-Lube grease caps, like part # RG04-040. Bearing protectors are not recommended for use with EZ-Lube spindles because the grease zerk in the end of the spindle will interfere with the inside of the bearing protector when pressed into the hub. Grease zerks are pressed into the end of EZ-Lube spindles and are usually very hard to remove. If you were...

  • Will a Titan Disc Brake Kit Fit a Tandem Axle EZ Loader Boat Trailer Model TEZR 17-20/22
  • There are a couple of things to look at on your trailer to determine if disc brake kit # T4843400 will fit it. The most important thing to check are the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the sides of the hub bearings. This kit uses inner bearing L68149 and outer bearing L44649. If your trailer has different bearing numbers let me know what they are. The other thing to look at is the trailer tongue. The coupler included with this kit fits a 3 inch wide tongue. It can fit a...

  • Swing Away Disk Brake Kit Recommendation for a Trailer with a 3 inch by 5 inch Frame
  • I checked with Titan and the Swing Away Disk Brake Coupler Kit part # T4843400 that you referenced will fit 3 by 5 inch trailer frames so I would recommend it for you. Since your trailer is aluminum you will need to contact the manufacturer of the trailer to see if a swing away coupler can be used on it.

  • What are the Dimensions of the Caliper Mounting Brackets in Titan Trailer Disc Brake Kit, # T4843400
  • I went out to the warehouse and found a kit that uses the same caliper mounting bracket as Titan Disc Brake Kit, # T4843400. The center hole has a 3 inch diameter but it is open at the end. The bolt hole pattern has the 1/2 inch holes 3 inches apart on center. The 3/8 inch mounting holes are 5-3/4 inches apart on center. Overall it is 7-3/4 inches by 6-1/2 inches at its tallest and widest points.

I have attached a link that will take you to our available selection of disc brakes with a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern.

  • Boat Trailer Brake Setup for Spring Axles and Torsion Axles

  • Disc Trailer Brakes for Tandem 7,000 Pound Axles
  • We do not have a kit for 7,000 pound axles but we have disc brakes for 7,000 pound axles. I have included a link to them for you. You would then need an actuator and brake lines. The actuator used in the kit you referenced is an Aero 7500, # T4839100. It fits on 3 x 5 inch channel tongues. You can use a spacer, # T4842100, if you have a 3 x 4 inch tongue. For lines and fittings, use # 9505 or # T4830000. I have included a link to some instructions for you as well.

  • Recommended Disc Brake Kit With Surge Actuating Coupler for Tandem 3,500 lbs Axles
  • The Titan Disc Brake Kit T4843600 was discontinued. It has been replaced with the Titan Disc Brake Kit and Leverlock Actuator w/ Electric Lockout - Tandem, 3,500-lb Axle # T4843200. We also have the swing-away coupler kit # T4843400. Both of these options are very similar to the kit you mentioned and have a superior corrosion resistance on the rotors and calipers by constructing them of dacromet with the actuator having a zinc plating for similar corrosion resistance.

  • Brake Fluid Recommendation for Titan Trailer Brake Actuators
  • Titan brake actuators like the part # T4843400 that you referenced need DOT III fluid in them at all times.

  • What Size Trailer Tongue Fits the Aero 7500 Coupler in Titan Disc Brake Kit, # T4843400
  • I spoke with my contact at Titan and the Aero 7500 Coupler included with the Titan Disc Brake Kit, # T4843400, is designed to fit on a 3 x 5 inch tongue. But, it will also fit on a 3 x 3 inch tongue or a 3 x 4 inch tongue if you were to use Titan Adapter Kit for Swing-Away Brake Actuators, # T4842100. This is a 1 inch spacer so for a 3 x 3 inch tongue you would need a total of 2 and for a 3 x 4 inch tongue you would need just 1.

  • What Part of the Titan Disk Brake Kit # T4843400 Applies the Trailer Brakes
  • The Titan Disc Brake Kit # T4843400 has a surge brake actuator that comes with it. Basically the actuator is made of two pieces and when the tow vehicle applies the brakes the weight of the trailer pushes the inner sleeve piece further into the outer sleeve which compresses a master cylinder that then creates hydraulic pressure to activate the brake assemblies that come with this kit. So the harder you brake the more pressure gets created and the harder the brakes apply. Then when you...
