  • 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

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.

One of the left backing plates and one of the right backing plates got messed up in shipping, I think I can repair them but I may be reaching out if I am unable to fix them. the arms that old the magnet fell off and the shoes are not centered on plate


The brake assemblies look to be good quality. I ordered them to add brakes to an idler axle on a tandem axle trailer. The axle had a brake mounting flange, so install was simple. I also used the 10" 5 on 5 drum/hub assembly with pre-greased bearings. I did have one assembly arrive in a damaged condition, but etrailer quickly took care of shipping a replacement and providing a call tag to return the damaged item.


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.

The kit continues to perform perfectly
Robert - 05/03/2022


Assembly was a cake walk to install bad thing doesn't come with nuts had hard time finding new 7/16×20 next ups sucks got a day later


Brake assemblies came in one large box and not individually boxed so brake assemblies were in pieces. We then had to put together before installing. Brake assemblies have always been good but packaging could be much better.

Thank you for reaching out about the packaging. Ideally we do want every order to arrive undamaged. I know that you have been able to install the assemblies however I will still have our Customer Service team reach out to you.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 12/16/2022


I wish I could give you a 5 star rating but I never recieved this order. I have since ordered a single brake assembly and the bolts that attach it to the backingplate were missing.


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.

Wow. Its been a year and the brakes are still perfect. Yet, my original suggestion has gone unnoticed, as though no one at the company even reads them. So, I still think etrailer can do better for its customers at minimal cost.
Alan - 08/21/2022


Item was exactly like description said,item worked great and receivedit ahead of schedule


The website, videos and prices are good. The product is made in China :(
The packaging was not so good. 4 brake kit assemblies in one large box with a little bit of paper thrown in. All 4 kits had come apart and I had to put them back together.


This was my first experience with etrailer. I have no complaints regarding the telephone guidance I received or the products themselves. Everything went smoothly without any surprises. I will not hesitate to use etrailer again.


The trailer brake kit is great,but it does not come with 7/16 x 20 nuts...which is a huge inconvenience...not easy to find in town...please include this in future orders to get 5 stars.


I purchased these along with a matching set of drum and hub assemblies and I received them very fast. The quality was excellent and they fit perfectly. Installation was simple and straightforward. etrailer has always been my favorite choice for trailer parts and they have always responded quickly to any questions I have had.


Good product but took months to receive.
had to replace one of the hub/drum assembly. I had to shim the bearing to get the proper depth on the bearings. The diameter was correct but the thickness was not correct. About .025” shim thickness.
The delay in shipping was due to mfg back order.


Shipping took longer than told, brake assembly springs not intact when received. Poor inner packaging caused material to come apart


The brakes were marked opposite of what I thought. I searched on line and found a etrailer response that agreed with my thinking. Haven’t completed the installation yet.


When I purchased this brake conversion package, I counted on the sales person to ascertain that I had everything needed. I was so disappointed and actually angry when I discovered that the studs on the back side of these brakes did not come with nuts and lock washers and in fact are an odd-ball size & pitch that is quite difficult to find at hardware stores. (7/16"-20) I have a very well stocked shop, containing most common hardware items, but not a single 7/16" bolt or nut...they simply aren't used in the USA to any degree. Hours wasted trying to locate nuts to to fit these studs left me no option but give a 2 star rating.

Oh wow, I have not heard of anyone not finding the seven sixteenth by 20 thread size at a local home improvement store. We do also carry them on site as part # BRKH10B
Mounting Hardware for 10" Brake Assemblies
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 01/04/2023


Direct fit onto my trailer. No problem installing and at a reasonable price. I was looking for one of the brake springs and this complete setup was cheap enough to be an even better deal.


Parts arrived on time but when I opened the box the parts were all scattered in the box and two of the trailer brakes had come apart. After going through the box thoroughly there were some parts missing.

very disappointed with the way the parts were packaged


This is my 2nd trailer where I did the brakes and the wheel bearing, always fast and with all the right parts, good service....My last one was on my RV that has 3 sets of brakes and the same amount of bearings,,,,,

Everything working well on both Trailers
Richard A - 04/02/2022


I wasn't real happy with how my package arrived. The trailer brake kits arrive in a large box with no packing material, resulting in the trailer brake kits arriving in pieces. I will have to reassemble them and hope they work.


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.


Bought four backing plates and they came 3 days late and 2 out of the 4 backing plates had been damaged. I had to take the springs off and put it all back together


Very pleased with replacement parts. Easy for one stop shopping.


Matched the OE great. I wish you would include new 7/16 20 nuts for mounting the backing plate to the axle as my originals were trash once removed and I had to make a trip to the hardware store burning much needed daylight for the repairs.


All together they were good, some of the hardware fell off in shipping I assume, although not sure how a spring falls off. Not impressed that they didn't come with new nuts to attach to axle, had to go buy them separately.

  • How Many Electric Trailer Brake Kits Are Needed for a Tandem Axle Trailer

These assemblies are self-adjustable which only needed an initial set-up during installation. After, that the brakes will self-adjust as you use them.

    An easy way to figure out what the culprit here is to connect another braked trailer to the truck; if you're getting the same errors on the factory brake controller regardless of the trailer then the issue is on the vehicle. If the issue is only with one trailer then you'll know to focus on that. If the issue is on the trailer, it's possible that the magnets on that one side have either gone bad or there is a wiring issue; you'll want to inspect the wiring and the ground on the side that...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes that Hum But Do Not Lock Up
    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. Most likely your brakes aren't adjusted properly and that's why they aren't grabbing like they should. When a drum brake is adjusted correctly there will be slight drag on the drum when you rotate it by hand. You should be able to hear and feel this drag. Try adjusting your brakes so that...
