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.

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.

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 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

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

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. 719938

Do you have a question about this Trailer Brake?


  • 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
  • The Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # AKEBRK-35 will bolt onto the standard brake flange like # 4-35 that is 2-7/8 inches on center and 4 inches diagonal on center. 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.

  • Replacement for AL-KO 1530116 and 1530117 Brakes
  • I do have an option for you but we don't carry any braking assemblies that are 10" diameter x 1-3/4" wide. 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. These will be a direct replacement, no drilling or cutting required....

  • Replacement Drum Assemblies for AL-KO 8490 Hubs
  • According to my research, AL-KO 8490 references an AL-KO hub for 3,500 lb axles with a 10 x 2-1/4" drum and a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. 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...

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...

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies for Hayes Old Style 10 x 2-1/4 Electric Trailer Brakes
  • 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. 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.

To replace the drum brakes on your 3,500 lb Dexter axle you will have a few options. The two options entail the use of self-adjusting or manual brakes.

  • Brake Mounting Flange Recommendation for Dexter 3,500 lb Axle
  • Looks like you have a 3,500 lb Dexter axle without brake flanges. The correct brake flanges for that style of axle is the part # 4-35. Welding a mounting flange, possible item # 4-35, is a very precise installation. The flanges need to be installed square and concentric to the hub and drum assembly and each other.

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 recommended hub/drum size for a 13" diameter wheel is one that is for 10" diameter brakes. The wheel will still fit on the hub/drum assuming the bolt pattern matches there is just less surface area on the hub for the wheel. However, you are only 1" off of the recommended specification so you would more than likely be fine with either 7" or 10" braking assemblies but there would obviously be an increase in stopping power with the larger assembly.

  • How to Determine the Correct Electric Trailer Brake Shoes for a 2002 Jayco Kiwi 23B Hybrid Camper
  • I did some research online and it looks like your 2002 Jayco Kiwi 23B hybrid camper will have 2 torsion axles with 4 bolt brake mounting flanges and 10 by 2-1/4 inch brake assemblies. You should remove one of the wheels and a hub and check to be sure before ordering parts. You will also need to determine the manufacturer of the brake assemblies on your axles before ordering replacement parts to determine the correct parts that will fit the brake assemblies. I added a photo showing how...

  • 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.

  • Replacement Leaf Springs, Electric Brakes and Wheel Bolts for Boat Trailer
  • Since your trailer axle rating is 3420-lbs you will want to use new double-eye leaf springs rated for a 3500-lb axle. You can use 25-1/8-inch 4-leaf spring # SP-212275. Do note that a well-worn spring's length dimension can grow as it flattens from years of use. Removing the springs to measure them as you did is the right way to go. Usually trailer axles will be mounted on top of the springs but it is possible for the axles to be mounted under the leaf springs when raising the trailer...

  • 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...

  • 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. The brake you referenced, # AKEBRK-35,...

  • 10 Inch Brakes Will not fit in hub of 1962 Shasta Camper
  • Your new electric trailer brakes # AKEBRK-35 should not fit in the way you are describing; it sit inside the groove. On a vintage trailer such as yours there can be fit issues so I recommend replacing your hubs. In order to choose the correct replacement hub and drum assembly, you will need to know both the inner and outer bearing numbers. These numbers can be found on stamped on the bearings themselves. You will also need to know your wheel's bolt pattern; I've added a link to a help article...

  • 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....

  • Troubleshooting Electric Brakes that Wont Fully Disengage and Heat Up Drum Assemblies
  • There are a couple of things that may cause what you are stating. If you have checked the power draw with a multimeter like # BTMT15 and see the brake power isn't fully disengaging, then I recommend cleaning the ground connection to the magnet and cleaning the connection between the trailer and the vehicle with sand paper or steel wool. Those pins can have corrosion that causes power to jump pins and may give you that constant draw. Once clean use dielectric grease # 11755 to keep moisture...

  • 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.
