etrailer by AxleTek Trailer Brakes - AKEBRK-35

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


Features:

  • Electric brakes are easier to install and offer more user control than hydraulic brakes
    • Require only an electric brake controller (sold separately) - no actuator or hydraulic lines necessary
  • Automotive-grade friction material is molded to brake shoes
    • Pads are fully bonded - not riveted - to shoes for long life and more braking torque
    • Less chance of cracking and crumbling that can lead to mechanical lockup, thanks to tapered edge and circular grinding
  • Periodic manual adjustment required
    • Fine-tooth brake adjustment gears allow for a more precise setting
  • E-coated backing plates resist wear and corrosion
  • Adjuster plugs (included) cover access holes to keep dirt and grime out of the assemblies and off of the shoes
  • Left-hand (driver's-side) brake assembly, right-hand (passenger's-side) brake assembly, and mounting bolts included
    • Nuts and lock washers (BRKH10B) sold separately
  • QAI and CSA certified


Specs:

  • Application: most standard hub-and-drum assemblies, including Dexter, Lippert (LCI), and AL-KO
  • Dimensions: 10" diameter x 2-1/4" wide
  • Mounting flange bolt pattern: 4 bolt
  • Wheel size: 13", 14", and 15"
  • Axle rating: 3,500 lbs
  • Limited 1-year warranty


Manual-Adjust Brakes

With repeated use of these brake assemblies, the brake shoes may move out of alignment, causing less efficient braking performance. To keep the brake shoes aligned and the brake assemblies performing correctly, you should perform routine maintenance.


These brake assemblies should be adjusted after installation and then as needed for the life of the brakes. To adjust the brakes, use a brake adjustment screw tool (sold separately) to turn the adjustment gear on the inside of the assemblies. Continue to turn the gear until the drum surrounding the brake catches on the brake pads enough so that the hub can no longer be turned easily by hand. Then reverse the gear by about 10 clicks. A properly adjusted brake should drag slightly on the brake drum.


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.

Comments

Occasionally during shipping/handling, the brake shoe actuating arm that the magnet is attached to can get moved out of position. Usually, it can be pretty easily moved back into place, it you havent been able to do this, please let us know. The mounting hardware nuts and lock washers are sold separately as part # BRKH10B

I bought a used 16 ft flat bed trailer and the trailer brakes never worked right. I took them apart several times and checked all connections. Found no real problems. Finally ordered a pair of new brake kits for under $$ and now they work like a charm. I should have done this right away 360714

I don't have any problem with the brakes they seem to be of good quality. the problem is with the packaging and shipping. when I opened the box the brake shoes, springs and adjusters were all loose and scattered inside the box. luckily all the parts to reassemble the brakes were there. Not what I expected. I think you should find a better way to package heavy parts 552280

Normally I buy Dexter parts for my trailer which have always been of high quality. This product was disappointing to say the least. The mounting studs on the backing plate were not seated and the bearings appear to be of poor quality. Really wish I had invested more and stuck with Dexter. 372417

I've only just received these today, so it is a bit difficult to give a detailed review based on installation or operation. I can say that they look exactly as expected and on a visual exam match my existing brake hubs. The one thing I noticed right off was the lack of nuts for the back of the hubs. Given that the current hubs are so rusted that the nuts will be cut off, I'm a little disappointed that i'll have to hunt up 16 nuts for the 4 hubs I purchased. I went back to the description and now see that it is clearly stated nuts and washers are not included. On that basis, it is my oversight, so 5 stars so far. I'll come back and update after installing and checking the operation. 503399



- AKEBRK-35
by:

This is an excellent product. It was a perfect fit and was identical to the original equipment brake assemblies. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the kit did not supply the 4 nuts needed to mount each brake assembly. We had to cut the old brake assemblies off because they were rusted so bad. It was at that point that I noticed that although each brake assembly had the 4 studs needed for mounting, there were no nuts. Because the nuts were fine thread, I didn't have replacements in stock here on the farm and had to drive a 14 mile round trip to the hardware store to buy 16 nuts, since I replaced all 4 brakes on the trailer. About and beyond that, I had no complaints about the product at all. 463300

Great fit easy to replace and excellent communications with e-trailer following placing my order. Big thumbs up. Saved nearly $200 over local parts shop for parts alone. 560354



- AKEBRK-35
by:

Good product, best gang for buck! Shipped fast. Bolted on good . Pretty easy to wire up. Remember to use something to seal connections so they do not corrode and cause other issues down the road. I then set the brake tension, but had to drive a couple of miles before the breaks really started working great. They must need to wear into the drums to seat correctly or something. Also these do not come with the nuts needed to bolt them on. So hopefully the old ones come off good so you can reuse them. Otherwise you will be visiting the hardware. 432682



- AKEBRK-35

For about the same price as actuators, shoes and a hardware kit, you can get the whole thing already assembled with all brand new parts. This was perfect for our older Scotty trailer. I would have liked to see the kit come with nuts and washers though - I had to make a special trip to the hardware store to get the 7/16 washers and the 7/16-20 nuts. My old hardware was metric so it would not work. 356667

Products were shipped in a timely way, arrived in perfect condition; thanks to etrailer staff I was able to have some guidance on which products I needed for my application and I received all the correct parts. Installation was also made much easier thanks to videos and literature from etrailer. It's now been a year since I've installed these brake assemblies; as far as functionality is concerned, they seem to be braking effectively. The only issue I have is that they squeal like no tomorrow, mostly during low-speed braking. From what I've read this is often caused by dust gathering along the shoes, and could also be caused by glazing of the surface of the shoes from excessive heat. To be honest I'm a bit surprised though that they are squealing as much as they are, considering I've only put 1,000-1,500km on them. I will have to pull the drums off and have a look to see if I can blow out the dust and/or scuff up the shoes a bit to remove any glazing. Disappointed though because my old shoes which I replaced never squealed. Time will tell how they hold up in the long run, but for now it's 3/5 621597


Comments

Other than the brake dust you mentioned, poor contact between the brake magnet and the armature surface of the brake drum can cause squealing. When brake assemblies are replaced, the armature surface of the drum should be closely examined for grooves, pitting or discoloration. Any of these can prevent good contact between the magnet and the drum. Even if the drums and assemblies are replaced at the same time, its recommended that the trailer brakes be burnished-in. This can be done during a test drive by applying the brakes 20 to 30 times to decrease the speed by 20 mph. For example, once reaching 40 mph use the manual override to slow down to 20 mph. Once at 20 mph, release the manual override and travel about a mile to allow ample time for brakes to cool and repeat the process again. You will need to repeat this process 20 to 30 times. This allows the brake shoes and magnets to slightly wear-in to the drum surface.

  • 10 x 2-1/4 Inch Trailer Brakes to Replace Dexter Electric Brakes
  • The brakes you have now are 10 x 2-1/4 inch brakes with a 4-bolt pattern. For a left and right replacement I recommend our house brand # AKEBRK-35-SA. These are also self-adjusting brakes so after the initial manual adjustment they will not have to be adjusted again. I have included a link to a video review of these brakes for you. The Dexter version for the set is # 23-468-469. For manually adjusted brakes the etrailer set is # AKEBRK-35 and the Dexter set is # 23-26-27. One of...

  • 4 Hole Brake Mounting Flange Dimensions for 10 Inch Brake Assembly

I've attached a photo to assist. The bolts will be 7/16"-20 and the Mounting Hardware for 10" Brake Assemblies # BRKH10B will give you the necessary lock washers and nuts compatible. The holes range from 15/32 to 1/2 inch.

For a drum assembly that will work with these hubs I recommend taking a look at the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-35-SA for self-adjust or part # AKEBRK-35 for manual adjust. If you would also like to replace the hub then as long as your existing AL-KO hub uses an L68149 inner bearing and an L44649 outer bearing, the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly...

These are an oddball size and would be best replaced with something more modern so you can access replacement parts if needed. There would also be an upgrade in regards to braking power. For this, I recommend using the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-35-SA for self-adjust or part # AKEBRK-35 for manual adjust.

  • Troubleshooting Electric Trailer Brakes That Hum But Do Not Engage Drums
  • The humming sound you hear from your trailer's electric drum brakes is a good sign.
