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.

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

Two of the brake assemblies were knocked out a whack when I receive them. I would have expected nuts to come with them to bolt them on. They came quickly. 496370


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

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.

Worked great to turn a old hydraulic drum brake to an electric brake system on an old boat trailer that was converted to an ATV trailer. I’ve had them on for over a year now with about 2000 miles on the conversion, everything is great. Good stopping power and they install was easy. etrailer helped me measure to get the correct drum and bearing since they were an oddball size. 725209

    The Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # AKEBRK-35 will be great replacements for your Hayes assemblies. They will not require new hubs/drums.

    It sounds like you may not have wired everything like it should be, particularly the ground wires.

Then run a power wire to your trailer brakes and connect it to the wire which was not grounded (on either of the brakes) and run another wire from the power wire on that brake to the brake on the other side of the axle....

  • Does Brake Assembly Set # AKEBRK-35 Come with Nuts and Hub/Drums
    The Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-35 comes with studs to mount the assemblies to the spindle mounting flange but does not come with drums or nuts for the assemblies to attach. For nuts to secure this to your spindle you'd want the kit part # BRKH10B. For a pre-greased and ready to install hub/drum that would fit same axle as the assemblies you'd want the part # AKHD-545-35-K and you'd be set!
