Self-Adjusting Brakes Don'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

These brake assemblies meet the requirements for certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The CSA creates standards, which when complied with ensure a safe and quality product. These brake assemblies underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. These brakes have 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 these brake assemblies 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.

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (1683 Customer Reviews)

Self-adjusting driver's-side and passenger's-side electric brakes are 10" x 2-1/4". Brake pads are made of friction material for improved braking and longevity. E-coated backing plates resist rust. Fit 13" to 15" wheels.


The right brake assembly arrived with the adjuster sprocket and lever misaligned and not even touching one of the shoes, so I had to disassemble that half and put it back together correctly. The assemblies also didn’t come with nuts to bolt them to the axles, so I had to get those separately. Otherwise, they seem to be a good value, especially with the free and quick shipping.

You are correct, these brake assemblies come with the following: Left-hand [drivers-side] brake assembly, right-hand [passengers-side] brake assembly, and mounting bolts. However, the nuts and lock washers are sold separately. We recommend part # BRKH10B

the packaging was poor at best. nuts and washers were loose in the box hardly any packaging in the box and because of how it was packaged the insulation on some of the wires was worn away and wires were exposed. I wont be buying from them again unless I absolutely have to.

I understand your frustration with receiving the order in this manner. I will share this feedback with our shipping department and I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

Left hand brake assembly was correct and in working order,, right hand brake assembly was assembled incorrect,, I had to fix it before I put it on the trailer

I am sorry that this happened to you. It looks to me like the right side self-adjuster was knocked loose during shipping and handling. I am glad to see that you were able to correct the situation! Please let us know if you are needing any further assistance.

I ordered 2 set of the brake kits for a tandem axle trailer. I have not installed them yet, so can't say how they work, so giving an "average" rating. What I can say is the packaging was about 1/2 star below poor. For heavy parts, brown paper was used to wrap the brake kits. Absolutely no padding and then they were sent in an oversize box. One of the brake shoes came off of the post during shipping. I was able to get it back where it was supposed to be, with about 15 minutes of grunting clamped to my work table. I called the order in and discussed the poor shipping/packaging in previous reviews and was assured those sort of shipping problems were in the past. I guess they have not been resolved. No damage seems to have occurred to any of the brake kits, but, I will be madder than a wet hen if I find out otherwise after installing the parts on my trailer.


Old brakes and new brakes. I know, I disturbed years of spider handy work, nasty. Totally happy with my first purchase and the fact that I got the right ones. I actually had no idea they came assembled like they do. I wouldn't of sand blasted and painted the base plates. So happy with the results. Thank you etrailer!


Brakes tend to overtighten on their own. Never could get the issue resolved. End up replacing with Dexter brakes that were self adjusting. Problem solved. Works great now.


Replaced the old electric brakes on my 1984 Gore Trailer and these fit perfect. The bearings and oil seal included in Part BK2-100 we’re also a perfect match!


Received these electric brakes today and have them on trailer along with new drums I received on my last shipment from etrailer. Every thing fit great and look good, will test them tomorrow.


2014 stealth enclosed trailer. Fit good no issues as everyone has mentioned before packing could be better but mine shipped fine.


The brakes are fine. Easy to install. Disappointed in either quality control or shipping. One of the brakes had both wires cut. I had to splice a new set of wires inside the brake. Easy for me to do, it just made the install take longer. I've included pictures of the damaged wires as well as the other brake that had no damage.

Thank you for sharing! I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

I added these brakes to the second axle of my tandem-axle trailer to compensate for a very poor quality set from another supplier. The difference in performance is like night and day. There is some concern with one of the self-adjusting brakes overtightening, but etrailer customer service said it should be no problem. Time will tell.

The end result has been quite satisfactory. The overtightening of the self adjusting brake one side only was due to an out-of -round drum, which was a continuing problem. I learned the cause of the problem from another source, but experienced staff at etrailer should have been familiar with the issue. After correction, hauling my 2500 pound sports car 1500 miles was accomplished without further issue. The brakes worked well.
James W - 05/26/2022


One of the first pair tha I ordered over adjusted and dragged the drum got hot , but fortunately not enough to damage anything else. I had to pay for the return. I explained that I was committed to leaving by a specific date. When no tracking came up I called. Returns said that the were behind and it would be several days befor it would be prosessed and a replacement shipped. I call customer service and got a sorry but that’s policy. I then got an automated call asking I was satisfied with customer. Service and did I need to talk to asuppervisor.. I got results, although it still could have faster even after that, I managed to get on the road only a couple days late.the replacement was ok. After several hundred miles the brakes are still ok.


The etrailer assembly all (4) was dislodged during shipment. Maybe you could secure the brake shoes from moving? There were not any mounting nuts as advertised. Other than that issue, install was easy.

This product comes with mounting screws but the nuts and washers are sold separately in item # BRKH10B

Great...flawless. Better than directed, for the price and ease of installation.
Greg - 10/22/2022


Nicely made brake plate and shoe setup. No specs were included as to the torque spec for the installation nuts though. One of the magnet wire had been pinched during shipment but the insulation was still intact and up to resistance specs.

Brakes are working well. You cant beat them for the price.
Colin - 11/07/2022


They came in a box just smahing into each other the whole time. 1 of them got all out of wack in the box, and I had to figure you to get it back in place. They look like decent quality. And arrived quickly.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 04/22/2022


brake adjusters on both left side brakes were not in place so had to disassemble to get them in place. When you set the brakes up after installing and try to back them off some the spring will come out of shoe and you have to disassemble to get it back in. Next time I will stick with the manual adjusting brakes instead of the auto. Wish I had read reviews before I purchased.

Self adjusting brake assemblies like the part # AKEBRK-35-SA
Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs
do not require initial adjustment but you will need to apply the brakes several times while moving slowly to allow them to self adjust to the correct tension. They will feel pretty weak at first until they reach the correct adjustment. So the easy solution for you would be to take out the trailer and while travelling slowly reach down and grab the manual override lever of the controller several times and you will feel the brakes start to grab harder and harder.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 10/20/2022


The brakes were very easy to install. The packing was terrible for such a large heavy box.
Hardly any packing material between the units.
One of the springs attached to shoe came loose and I was forced to re-install. Glad I had 2 sets I was able to use one as a guide.

After 1 year no issues or problem. Brakes seem to be working great.
Daniel - 03/28/2022


The product itself seems to be great !
the shipping/packaging was poor, allowing these heavy items to beat against other, actually shifting parts on the backplate significantly to be unusable, as shipped/received. I was able to PRY the parts back into place, as they are under heavy Spring Load.
It looked like the brake pads may have been chipped on the edges, but believe they are still usable.

I like etrailer ! But disappointed in some of their packaging solutions.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

New upgrade to self adjusting brakes, new drums,


They arrived in short order & were a perfect fit. They bolted up with absolutely NO issues. After a year of using this trailer & about 7000 miles of moving livestock & large rd balesim MORE than pleased. I live in the valley with a mile long hill on either side. These brakes have been GREAT !


I read that the packaging sucked. I figured they must have fixed the problem. Not the case. Packing was horrendous. Spent a while putting parts back together. How can u run a company and package your product like a 3 year old? I’ll buy somewhere else next time

I apologize that the brakes arrived damaged. I know that our shipping department does their best to make sure the parts will arrive undamaged. Customer Service will be in touch to assist you.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 12/01/2022


Brakes may be ok quality wise but they way they were shipped is pathetic and two of the four arrived damaged. Why they would shipped this way is beyond me and I will have to call them in the morning about replacements the magnet is broken off of one and the brake shoes popped of the other. I bought 4 electric brake assemblies and they were shipped 2on too of each other in the bottom of a very large box . With nothing to keep them from slamming into each other
I will have to think long and hard if I ever buy anything from etrailer again.


Used these on a custom built offroad camping trailer. Easy install, just don't forget to order the mounting hardware. These bolted right up to the Timbren suspension (ASR3500S06) in about 5 minutes. Also used the 10 inch 5x5 drums to mate to Jeep Wrangler wheels. I would recommend this product and as a whole. Great customer service and fast shipping.


I was originally looking for just parts to rebuild the brakes on our project trailer when I ran across these. I chose the self adjusting for the ease of it and the parts have worked great. Bolted right up to our axel and have had no problems. Like everything else I own we have abused them beyond their original purpose.

This product has been impressive. We got a lot for our money. I was a little leery of buying something cheap. These were middle of the road price range. When we received them and I opened them up it was obvious these were of better quality than what I was expecting. After a year now we’ve had no problems. Great purchase
John - 01/15/2022



This was an upgrade
to my 2015 Suretrac 5x8 square tube single axle utility trailer. The trailer was not equipped with them when I purchased it. I quickly realized after two trips with a full load that they would easily improve safety.

My tow vehicle came equipped with an integrated brake controller as well as a 7 way rv plug.

I performed this installation with the trailer raised up an only a inch or two, resting on safety stands. !! Of course, a lift would make this operation go much easier. !!


THE etrailer parts were easy to assemble. All fit perfectly together. Obviously I did have to adjust the brakes a small amount to get them within the activation reach.


1) To insure correct wiring it required extra patience and planning. I found the information regarding what wire activated what to be a bit confusing online. Using an inexpensive test light proved extremely helpful. For me it helped to determine from the start each connection point and color code that were meant for each other (in my situation changes in coding took place). To make it go smoothly I drew our a schematic before getting settled underneath. Note: that I have included images of the old flat plug wiring along with the coding.

2) If I were to do this again, I WOULD HAVE spliced the wiring to both L & R brakes before hand. Lying flat on my stomach underneath the trailer and trying to both properly strip and crimp the short pieces of wire from each brake to the 12 gauge lengths of wire was a little tedious.

*Parts list from etrailer:


(1) ET7WK Trailer Wiring 7-Way Upgrade Kit

(2) AKHD-545-35-K Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 3,500-lb Axles - 10" Diameter - 5 on 4-1/2
(1) AKEBRK-35-SA Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs

(1) BRKH10B Mounting Hardware for 10" Brake Assemblies

*Additional wiring (below), ties, a few screws, electrical tape, extra crimps and stud crimps, etc. were locally sourced for connecting from the box upgrade kit to both L&R brakes.

(1) 12ft section of white 12 gauge

(1) 12ft section of black 12 gauge

*Additional grease, both tube and tub type were purchased along with large rubber gloves for greasing and hub installation.

NOTE: at this date I have NOT yet driven the trailer with the brakes. I had only tested them by hand spinning each wheel while having someone actuate the [trailer brakes only] from the vehicle.

After making your initial adjustment, what you will want to do is drive on as flat a surface as possible and when at roughly 15-20 mph hit your brakes; also do the same thing but use the manual override on your brake controller. Once this is done enough the brakes will be properly adjusted.
