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.

Maybe it's my stupidity, but when I saw brake "kit" it I thought it would have been the whole assembly. However I received the brake pads assembly but not the brake drums. So I'm going to order the drums now. Maybe an either pads, drums, or both option. Still is a really good price for everything and shipping was fast. 394488

Great fast service and delivery. Install was a breeze with everything already installed on the back plate. The self adjusting brakes adjusted really nice. Applied brakes 8 to 10 times with the manual brake control on the controller while driving 20mph and that was it. Sorry forgot to take pictures. 691959

The etrailer brake assemblies seem to be identical to original ones from Dexter, but at a significant savings, so I'm generally satisfied. However, during shipment, they apparently banged together and I had to readjust the shoes and mechanism to get them into position. Also, one of the covers for the adjustment slots in the backing plate had been broken and fallen out. Fortunately, I had some extra covers from a previous set of brakes, so I did not have to wait to have etrailer send me a new one. Also, these brake assemblies do not come with nuts, and I don't recall seeing that in the description. This makes no sense. Naturally, the nuts from the original brakes were corroded beyond usability, so I had to run to town to buy some nuts before I could mount these. Very annoying! Please include the nuts in the package and charge an extra couple of bucks. Anyone who buys the assembly are going to need nuts to mount it. 451448

These "3500#" brake assemblies fit my "4400#" AL-KO axles. Apparently AL-KO uses the square flange on both their 3500# and 4400# axles. Ten-inch is ten-inch, I guess. These are also cheaper than the listed 4400# brake assemblies, win-win. The parts quality appears excellent, and the etrailer packaging is superb. I did need to back off three of the four adjustments to 9 15/16 inch prior to assembling the drum. Tip, its much easier to do so before you install the assembly onto the axle since you can get a tape measure across the shoes when the brake is sitting on the bench. I also test fit the drum before installing the bearings, just to assure myself it would clear the shoes. I'm anxious to get on the road with these self-adjusting electric brakes. I've never used them before. 410237

Excellent Brakes - Much easier and less than just replacing the brake pads. Make sure you order the Mounting Hardware for 10" Brake Assemblies - (Part #BRKH10B) if your brakes are very old and rusty. EZ Lube Axles are the best!! 541167

They fit, they work, they self-adjust. I'd suggest that anyone who is going to use these buy a brake adjustment tool, as a screwdriver is a hit/miss proposition. An alternative is to manually adjust before the hub is installed. After the hub spins freely with some drag, then pack the bearings and install the wheel. Final adjustment is made with the screwdriver (difficult) or brake adjustment tool (a bit easier). 566058

I am giving this review only three stars because of how these were packaged. The price is fair for them but I think this is a case of getting what you pay for. You would expect each brake unit to come in it's own box or at least somewhat protected from the other brake unit in the box, but that was not the case. Instead they were placed in one large box with paper wadded between them along with 3 other smaller items I had purchased just thrown into the box which allowed everything in the box to basically rattle around during shipment. This careless packaging I assume is a way to cut costs and resulted in one of the brake units being what I thought at first to be very damaged from what I can assume was the from the box they were both poorly packaged into being dropped or something during the shipping process. After 10 minutes of wrestling with the screwed up brake unit I was able to get all the parts back in line like they should be. As far as the review of the actual parts themselves I can not comment as of yet as I have not installed them yet and that is partly because I am reluctant to based on the fact that I now question the integrity of the brake unit that came all bent out of shape. 543301

Need to include set up instructions. On the web site it says to manually adjust the brakes you can not do this due to a bracket blocking the star wheel. The person on the phone that took my order said to do 10 to 15 stops at 20mph in a open parking lot. I found in the q and a it stated to drive and brake and they will adjust. I have gain on my truck where do I start. They do not come with mounting nuts or lock washers 7/16x20. Regards, Bob K 406700

I would give this product a much better review but I ordered two sets for my double axle trailer and one of the four brake assemblies were wrong. I was in a time crunch and needed the right part ASAP and customer service said I had to pay for expedited shipping even though it was their fault for the wrong item. Therefore, I had to pay a much higher price at a local dealership for the right part. After looking at other customer reviews this is not the first and only incident on receiving wrong parts. etrailer.com was willing to exchange the part for the right one but not fast enough for my needs, so they were willing to fix their mistake but not make the situation right. 413467

I ordered the set of two brake back plate assemblies, and two sets of wheel bearings for my Casita travel trailer. Initially I intended to simply replace the brake shoes. But when I searched on line for the shoes, I found they would cost me nearly as much as the entire backing plate (shoes and all). Of course, replacing the entire plate is much easier. Removing the old ones was the only challenge. Installing the new was easy. I'll test them out tomorrow. For now, I can say that the product looks fine, and it was packaged and shipped very well. Furthermore, the instructional videos on the web site are great, and the products are organized well for finding what I want. I congratulate eTrailer for their organization, and customer contact. Thanks. 485354

Fast delivery - Ordered on 9/29/17 - Received on 10/4/17 Nice to have a drum kit already assembled. Cost is very reasonable too. Easy to mount and install. Haven't yet been out on the road with them to see how the operational functionality is so I can't comment on that aspect. Only draw back I see is the two wires could stand to be 6"-8" longer. At the current length, you can't easily, if at all ground one wire to the frame without first extending the wire. 440378

These brakes work awesome. I converted my surge brakes over on my 25 ft checkmate boat trailer. It stops like a dream. I put brakes on both axles and made sure all my connections are water proof. I also unhook them each time i dunk it. Not sure if it helps. Hauled my boat all the state of michigan last summer with no problems. When I was running surge brakes I was constantly working on them. I would change the complete backer each time and with the 2 year mark something would go wrong. These so far so good. The self adjusting feature works well too. I did the initial adjustment as required and they just keep getting better the more I haul it. 496620

The brakes came in and looked great. It was like plug a play. I took them out of the package bolted the up to the axle put my hubs on and I was ready to go. The only poor review was that they did not come with nuts so I had to go to 2 different hard ware store to find enough 7/16 20 nuts. That is why I only gave this a 4 instead of a 5. 571129

I bought this kit last year to replaced the existing brakes on our 2010 Jayco 23B. We went on eight different camping trips this year and they work great! We noticed a huge improvement when applying the brakes to slow down or stopping the camper altogether. I highly recommend this kit because they were easy to install and the noticed stopping power.Please feel free to ask me any questions regarding this kit. 565940

When I called to order, the salesman was extremely helpful. I got the right parts ordered and delivered. However, one of the outer bearings was delivered bent. I called to have the bearings replaced and to ask about other aspects of the install. I was never able to connect to my original salesman (4 attempts) and my request to have their expert installers call me to answer questions was ignored. I never heard back from them. Furthermore, the replacement bearings would take 4-5 business days to deliver. So, I asked about 2nd day delivery. I was quoted $32 for second day air for the bearings! I protested and they split the cost ($16). Everyone I spoke with was extremely nice and professional. But, I suspect that communications within the company need to be improved. They ship out of the St. Louis area so consider the shipping time to your locale. Everything I ordered had a China stamp. But, everything fit without much fuss; we'll see how it goes once I start moving stock with this thing. I'll order from them again. But, I won't start a rebuild until I've closely inspected what they send me. 494258

I’ve only put about 100 miles or so on the trailer since installing the hubs/brakes. Everything has worked fine. I saw another review that mentioned short wires from the electric brakes. I absolutely agree that they should be a foot or more longer. I had to solder shrink tube extra wire to make connections.

Ordered both the self adjusting brake kit and new drums for both axles on my Jayco fifth wheel trailer to replace some seriously overheated brakes from the previous owner. I ordered them on Monday and they very quickly arrived on the following Thursday. Not bad considering they were shipped all the way from MO to CA in 4 days instead of the 6-8 I expected. The brakes and backing plates were well packaged and appear to be good quality for a reasonable price. I installed all 4 in less than 4 hours and everything went according to plan. Adam at Etrailer sales helped me verify the correct product as well as being very courteous and knowledgeable. I will definitely recommend and use Etrailer again. 478745

  • Choosing the Correct 10 x 2-1/4 Inch Electric Brakes
    The brakes need to fit the axle. Or more specifically the hubs and the brake mounting flanges on the axle. One thing that may be confusing you is that brake assemblies for 4,400 pound axles and those for 3,500 pound axles are both 10 x 2-1/4 inches. The difference will be the brake mounting flange bolt hole pattern. If your axle is a indeed a 3,500 pound axle # AKEBRK-35-SA will work for you.

  • Why is 10 or 12 Gauge Wire Recommended for Electric Brake Assemblies
    The reason that 10 Gauge # 10-1-1 or 12 Gauge # 12-1-1 wire is recommended for 10" brake assemblies, like part # AKEBRK-35-SA, is because they pull more power than the lights on your trailer. I believe the green wire you are referring to carries the right turn/stop lighting functions as you can see from the attached photo of a trailer side 4-Way. The 14 and 16 gauge wires are too small for the amount of power needing to get to the brake assemblies and they could potentially get too hot,...

    The first thing to check when adding electric brakes to the 5x8 enclosed trailer is to check for brake flanges on the spindle. I have attached a photo of what that looks like. If you do not have brake flanges you will need to have a professional weld on flanges like part # 4-35 which is designed for a 2-3/8" round axle. Then you will need 10" brake assemblies for the 3500 lb axle, for that I recommend part # AKEBRK-35-SA. You will also need a hub-and-drum assembly but I would need to...

  • Recommended Trailer Brake Assemblies for 1998 Fleetwood Mallard 24J Travel Trailer
    Absolutely. Your 1998 Fleetwood Mallard 24J will use 10 inch brake assemblies which are designed to work with 10 inch hubs so the measurements aren't literal. I recommend using the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # AKEBRK-35-SA. These assemblies will self-adjust so you don't need to worry about the manual maintenance to keep them operating to their best. I've attached a couple videos to assist. If you need new mounting...

  • How to Determine Correct Electric Trailer Brake Size
    We don't have any way of knowing the brakes you need for your Shorelander boat trailer but can tell you how to determine the right ones. To determine the brake assemblies that will fit your trailer, you need to know your axle's weight capacity, your mounting flange bolt pattern and the inside diameter and depth of your drum. For example, the Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-35-SA are for 3,500 lb axles, measure 10" diameter x 2-1/4" wide (so that is the drum size they fit in) and...

  • Parts Needed to Add Brakes to a Tandem 3,500 lb Axle Trailer to Tow with a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    It sounds like you currently have a wheel hub that has a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern (taken from the far end of one bolt to the center of one directly across from it) and that you already have a brake mounting flange on two 3,500 lb axles. If this is the case then I recommend using the electric brake kit # AKEBRK-35-SA along with the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # AKHD-545-35-K. Electric brakes are the easiest to install and maintain so these will work out great for you. Just make sure...

  • Recommended Self-Adjusting Braking Assemblies and Hubs/Drums for 3,500 Lb Axle
    The correct braking assemblies are the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-35-SA which are self-adjusting. The correct hub/drum is the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K for EZ-Lube or part # AKHD-545-35-K for standard. In regards to models with the parking brake feature, these are not available in self adjusting but we do carry them as the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit w/ Parking Brakes part # K23-086-087-00. If you are instead referring to a breakaway, I...

  • Torque Specs for etrailer Electric Trailer Brake Kit AKEBRK-35-SA
    The brake mounting hardware for the # AKEBRK-35-SA, which can be obtained with part # BIK-00, should be torqued between 45-70lbs during installation; if you don't have a torque wrench you'll want to tighten the bolts until the lock washer is flat against the backing plate. In order to do the initial, manual adjustment on the # AKEBRK-35-SA you will use the star style adjustment wheel at the bottom of the assembly; this process is briefly shown around the 2:00 mark in the installation...

  • Are Replacement Magnets Available for AL-KO 10" x 1-3/4" Brakes
    I spoke with my contact at Dexter Axle (who took over the AL-KO braking systems) and she said that you will need to upgrade your brakes and hub/drum assemblies as the magnets are no longer available for your application. For this you can use the Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-35-SA which uses the 10" x 2-1/4" self-adjusting brakes, and the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K which is compatible with these brakes and uses the EZ Lube grease cap.

  • Replacement Brake Kit Recommendation for 2000 Rockwood Premier 2317G Pop Up
    From my research the Rockwood likely has a 3,500 pound axle and therefore uses 10 inch brakes. The 10 inch brake assemblies I recommend for you (And almost always recommend) are # AKEBRK-35-SA. These are self-adjusting so after the original set up they won't need to be adjusted again. Both the left and right hand side are included, and labeled to make installation easier. Also the mounting bolts are included but you'll need the nuts and lock washers, part # BRKH10B. Our most popular...
