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 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.

Well hello, I dont do many reviews but I will have to say that the people at etrailer are very nice and very easy to deal with and they know there business for sure , I havent installed my parts yet and they arrived dead on time and I knew every step the parts made along the way to me . So far I am very pleased and that is hard to do with me as 99 percent of the time nothing is ever the way suppliers say it going to be until now with etrailer , very nice job guys and thank you and I will be installing everything this weekend and will do another review and will have some pics along the way, And by the way thank ou for keeping the prices affordable for us out here in the field trying to keep our equipment rolling and safe , with your prices no reason to be able to do just that , again great job guys . 484854

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

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

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

I have not installed parts yet.But they arrived quickly at Havre Ht.Came back to Medicine Hat Alberta last night.Looked at them this morn,exactly what I ordered.Would like to comment on exceptional service I had with etrailer.

She is a good example of what customer service should be.I appreciated her help and concern in helping me out.I will deal with etrailer again if needed,and will tell friends about your company as well. Once again ..THANK YOU 540182

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

Brake drums were exactly what I ordered. etrailer was amazing, I ordered on a Sunday afternoon around 5:00 PM and within about 30 minutes I received a call form them with a couple of questions about my order and by around 8:00 PM I had received an email that my order was shipped. All my parts showed up by Wednesday in perfect condition. I installed them all on Friday afternoon, everything was a perfect fit. Now my 20 year old trailer is like new and ready for the trip Im about to take it on across country. 470508

Super fast shipping, ever thing received in good condition, will be a few weeks before I will be able to install anything as I am still working on the Horse trailer body doing repairs and getting it ready for painting . The box ever thing was ship in was just right to handle the weight but packing could have been done different for as there was not any thing to keep the electric brake kit from shifting in the box and where stuck together and could have been damage, they should have been wrap separate. 382754

Brake adjuster was not assembled on the Ebrake assembly. I did have to take time to assembly this is why I give the order three stars. Received the order fast. Overall the product seems to be good quality. etrailer has great customer service. 461527

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

Very happy with product bought four brake assemblies for dump trailer quick delivery parts work awesome easy on .l think anybody who uses ebrake for any trailer needs would be very happy with quality and service about the only complaint would be no new nuts for studs included in kit no real big problem .l would highly recommend to any one pricing is awesome also thank you 412398

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

I ordered this break set because it was cheaper to buy a complete break set than it was to replace the break shoes on one side which had gotten greasy due to a bad seal. The set was a direct replacement for the original breaks. I did have to knock out the 4 mounting studs. My tow dolly used bolts and nuts which mounted both the breaks and the spindles. Ken 513747

Product was priced very competitively. Arrived on time. It could have been packaged better. It only had some brown paper wrapping around each brake component. The result was that 3out of 4 units had become disassembled during shipping. There were no broken or damaged parts but I spent a good deal of time putting them back t together. 484750

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

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

by:


The quality and workmanship is very poor. I received this product with loose springs and several parts just sitting in box. This product was intended for "bolt on" . However I had to put the springs and other pieces back on the product before I could "bolt on". Very poor workmanship. 448880



- AKEBRK-35

by:


Product appears to be a good quality and easy to install. The only negative is they could have been packaged better for shipping. Parts move around in the box and there was a chip in one of the shoes...not that big of a deal but it wouldn't be hard to correct. I would buy from them again 411449

These brakes are a great combination of quality and affordability. I installed them on a trailer that is for occasional personal use, so was able to save money over something more geared to everyday commercial use. Installation was easy and they function just fine. Thanks etrailer! 499209

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

Do you have a question about this Trailer Brake?


  • Parts Needed to Add Electric Brakes to a Utility Trailer with a 3500 Lbs Axle and Brake Flanges
  • You will need several items to add electric brakes to your Carry-On Utility trailer. Starting with the trailer you will need a hub and drum that matches the bearings and seal on your trailer spindle and your wheel bolt pattern. The only way to be sure is to check the bearing part numbers and seal part number, but with a 3,500 lbs Dexter axle that has brake mounting flanges you will most likely have the # L44649 Outer and # L68149 inner bearings and # 58846 seal. If these are the correct...

  • 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. It means that the brakes' magnets are being energized by the output from the trailer brake controller in the vehicle. The issue with the brakes not applying pressure to the drums could simply be a matter of adjustment, or it could have another cause. Drum brakes like # AKEBRK-35 have an adjustment device called a star wheel that is located near the bottom of the magnet. Please refer to the picture I prepared...

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...

First measure the diameter of the mounted brake shoe or the inside diameter of the drum, then measure the width of the brake lining. If 10 inches by 2-1/4 inches is correct and you have a 4 bolt mounting pattern, the Dexter Axle Electric Brakes, item # 23-26 and # 23-27, would be the correct fit.

  • How to Measure Hub/Drum to Determine Size of Replacement Brake Assembly for Jayco Tent Trailer
  • My research into the specs for your 1996 Jayco J-1007 tent trailer suggests that unit had electric drum brakes rather than hydraulic brakes. Certainly it is possible that at some point the coupler was changed from a standard a-frame coupler to a surge coupler for hydraulic drum brakes. For a smaller cozy single-axle trailer like the J-1007 that would be a lot of work for not much payoff since electric brakes typically cost less and are easier to work on.

I did not see in part descriptions the bolt pattern of your wheels but the most common patterns are 5 on 4-1/2, 5 on 5-1/2, and 6 on 5-1/2.

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.

For a similar self-adjusting assembly that requires less maintenance, you may want to consider the # AKEBRK-35-SA that will also be perfect replacements. These require adjusting only at install and will self-adjust after that to keep your brake shoes working at their best.

  • The axle capacity sticker on your Slingshot 25RL's axles should confirm their weight rating and this is what you'll want to use to select your new electric drum brakes. The 10-inch brakes we offer are all a 2-1/4-inch width and are shown on the linked page. You also want to match the brake mounting flange bolt pattern to ensure the new brakes will bolt right up. Always be sure to choose both left- and right-hand brakes for each axle. On the linked page click on the filter for your axle...

  • Troubleshooting Electric Brakes Grabbing on 2017 Aluma Cargo Trailer
  • With brakes grabbing or locking near the end of a stop, it sounds like there are two possibilities. The first possibility is that your brake controller is adjusted too high and is sending too strong a signal for your lightweight aluminum trailer. The second and more probable possibility is that the trailer brakes need to be adjusted. The drag on your brakes is probably too high and that will cause your brake shoes to wear out prematurely because they are always in contact with the drum...

  • 10 Inch Electric Trailer Brakes with Parking Brake Feature
  • There are only a handful of brake assemblies that have the provisions to add a parking brake and # AKEBRK-35 or # AKEBRK-35-SA do not have that feature. Dexter electric brake assembly kit # K23-086-087-00 does have the ability to add a parking brake feature. I have linked a video review of this set for you. The parking brake levers are at the backs of the assemblies. You can attach cables to those and run the cables to a lever to engage/disengage the brakes manually. I have also included...

  • Why Aren't Trailer Brake Assemblies and Hub/Drums Sold Together
  • We offer the brake assemblies separate from the hub/drums. Reason being there are a few different brake assembly brands and styles as well as bolt patterns of hubs so this allows you to pick the best components for your setup. I attached a help article that will walk you through the process of adding brakes to your trailer for you to check out.

  • Parts Needed To Install Brakes On Haulmark 8 Foot V Nose Trailer
  • I did some research and it looks like most Haulmark trailers like yours have a 3,500-lb single axle. If you have different axles then let me know and I can make the correct recommendation.  Your axle must have brake mounting flanges attached behind the existing hub assembly on each side for brakes. If there are no brake mounting flanges then you will either have to replace your axle or purchase brake mounting flanges that can be welded to your axle by a qualified welder.  A common...

  • Troubleshooting Electric Brakes That Do Not Work
  • It sounds like you may not have wired everything like it should be, particularly the ground wires. Each brake assembly is going to need to have a pair of wires coming out of it, with both having ground wires that are attached to bare metal surfaces on your trailer frame. 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....

  • Parts Needed to Add Electric Drum Brakes to 3500-lb Axle on Pace Cargo Trailer
  • We can help you with the parts and information needed to add electric drum brakes to your 2007 Pace 6 x 12-foot cargo trailer that has a 3500-lb axle. A good place to start is the linked article that explains the parts needed to make this addition to your trailer. The article has a table that lists the parts and that includes links to each. If your axle already has brake flanges welded on to the spindles then this will be a big advantage. If you need to add them we offer them, but this...

  • Recommended Brake Assemblies and Hubs for 3500 lb Axle
  • The Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 5 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern # AKHD-555-35-EZ-K is my recommendation over the Dexter # 84557UC3-EZ. They are basically the same assembly made by different manufacturers and the Dexter assembly simply has the price difference you noted for their name. The products will both work well with a brake assembly like the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # AKEBRK-35 or the self-adjusting # AKEBRK-35-SA. My recommendation...

  • Troubleshooting Electric Brakes On Tandem Trailer That Are Pulsating
  • It actually sounds like something may be loose in the brake drum somewhere. If you have taken the wheel and hub off and nothing is obvious, I recommend adjusting the brakes manually as shown in the attached video. If you adjust the brakes and still have the same problem I recommend testing the brake magnets to make certain they are working correctly. I have attached a link to a helpful article that explains how to test the magnets. If everything checks out after testing and adjusting...

  • Replacement Brakes and Hubs for a Vintage Trailer with Warner Brakes
  • Unfortunately, we do not have the 14” diameter x 2” wide braking assemblies you need for your trailer. I also did some searching online and could not find any replacement parts for you either. The only option I can offer you would be to replace with a more common size. In order to do so I would need you to measure your brake mounting flange bolt pattern in addition to your inner bearing, outer bearing, and grease seal. I have attached a help article on how to measure the bearing/seals for...
