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.

The Electric Trailer Brake Kit worked as advertised. With two thousand miles on the trailer I have excellent braking control. I did readjust the brakes after a few hundred miles and this improved the smoothness and braking control while driving through Arkansas backcountry roads.

this was the easiest replacement of brakes I've ever done on a trailer and I've been a mechanic for over45 years price was very reasonable for both sides 69 dollars just unbolt the backing plates cut the wires for the electric brakes bolt on the new backing plates that are completely assembled reconnect the 2 wires put drums back on and your done.

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.


Comments
These are still great after a year of use. I have used this trailer on at least 6 trips of 200 miles or more hauling ATVs and no problems at all.

Great replacement brakes. Perfect fit. Quick shipping. HOWEVER ... would it kill you to include a couple of extra nuts for the studs? They're an uncommon size (7/16-20) and the old ones on my trailer were so rusted I had to cut one off. Luckily, I have 40 years of collected hardware and I found ONE nut that would fit. Other than that, love the brakes.

It has been a year since the brakes were replaced and they are still working well. My only beef is a general trailer brake complaint, trying to adjust the shoes with the drum on is nearly impossible with a drop axle, the adjustment hole is right behind the upright for the axle. Installation was easy, equipment has held up well and was a good value. etrailer keeps providing excellent customer support. It is nice to deal with a company that has employees with great attitudes and who are knowledgeable about the products they sell. I'll be back when one of my other trailers needs repair.

So another year is gone and the brakes are still working well. We have been using the trailer a lot this year and no issues.

Just got them installed, adjusted and took the trailer for a test spin and seem to be working fine. Wish they would charge a couple extra dollars for (8) new nuts instead of having to use the ones from the brake assemblies. After having the trailer for 11 years in WI weather, well yeah, there was "some" rust haha

After the electric brakes of my horse trailer disintegrated and locked a wheel, I decided to replace them with a new trailer brake kit. The installation was very simple, everything fell in place and the project didn't take me more than a few hours to finish. Because of the good quality and easy installation I decided to buy a second kit for the front axle. I should have done this job earlier because now the trailer responds significantly better to the brakes and I feel a lot safer when transporting our horses.

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


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.

I replaced all four brake assemblies on my 2000 cargo trailer. I've never done this before but it only took four hours including removal of the old brake assemblies and installing all four new ones. Anyone capable of using their brain should be able to do this easily!

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Brakes

  • Verifying Fitment of Spindle, Hubs, and Brakes
    Yes, they all work together. You have 10 inch electric brakes, part # AKEBRK-35, which are designed for 10 inch hubs like part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K. Those hubs use inner bearing # L68149 and outer bearing # L44649 which is exactly what fits onto the spindle # TRU74FR. Plus, the sipndle has a 4-bolt brake flange for the 10 brakes to mount on. One additional thing to keep in mind is that to install spindle it needs to be completely concentric which is normally done by experienced welders...

  • 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!
