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.

Video Transcript for etrailer Trailer Brakes - Electric Drum Brakes - AKEBRK-6 Review

Today, we're going to take a look at the 12-inch electric trailer brake assembly kit. It includes the left and right hand brake assemblies, and it fits 5200 pound to 7000 pound axles. These are electric brakes, they're a lot easier to install. They offer more user control than hydraulic brakes. They require only an electric brake controller that we do sell separately on our website, so there's no actuator or hydraulic lines necessary. On the pads, they use an automotive-grade friction material, which is molded to the brake shoes, and since they're fully bonded, they're not riveted to the shoes, they give you a lot longer life, more braking torque 00:00:30. Also on these, they have a tapered edge on the pad itself, and they do a circular grinding of the pad, which gives you less chance of cracking and crumbling that could lead to a mechanical lockup. Now, these are manual adjustment brakes, so they do require periodic manual adjustment. At the very bottom here where you adjust them, they do use a fine-tooth brake adjustment here, which allows for a more precise setting, and there's no brake interior that's needed following your initial adjustment.

Now, on these, you can notice they do use a e-coded backing plate, helps resist wear and corrosion. Does come with the adjuster plugs. That's a nice cover that covers the access hole, to keep any dirt or grime out of the assemblies and off of the shoes. Now, this kit does include both the left-hand driver's side assembly and the right-hand passenger side assembly. It includes the mounting hardware, which is a 3/8 inch size mounting hardware. It's a total of 10 bolts, 10 lock washers, and 10 nuts to install it onto your brake mounting flange.

Now, these brakes do meet the QAI and CSA certification. These are electric brakes, so they do require, there's two wires on the back of them. They do need to be connected. One goes to a good clean ground, the other goes to the brake feed for power, and are both black wire, so it doesn't matter, either wire for either function, whichever one you want to hook up. A few specs on this, the application. This will fit most standard hub and drum assemblies, including Dexter Lip-pert 00:01:49 NowCoat. The size on these are 12 inch by two inch, and where that measurement comes from, the 12-inch is the diameter, measured from this end of the pad to this.

All the way across, there's your 12 inches. The two inches is the width of the pad itself, so if we put a ruler on that, there's your two inches, so 12 inches by two inches. This assembly does use a five-bolt mounting flange bolt pattern, so when this goes to install on your axle, the mounting flange on the axle does have to have a five-bolt pattern. These are designed to fit on axles that are rated 5200 pounds, 6000 pounds, and 7000 pounds, and one last thing is, these are left hand and right hand. The way to tell them apart, when you get them brand new, they'll usually have a sticker that'll say left hand and right hand, but if the sticker wasn't on there, the easiest way to tell is just look at the length of the pad on the shoe. So here, the pad goes from here to here, and this pad is all the way from here to here. This is a longer pad, this is a shorter pad.

The shorter pad is the primary pad, the primary shoe. That'll always fit toward the front of the trailer, so that'll dictate that this is a left-hand side or driver's side assembly. On this one, it's the same way. This shoe goes here to here. This one is all the way here to here. This is a shorter shoe, the primary shoe. Faces the front of the trailer, that'll mean that's the right-hand passenger side assembly. That should do it for the review on the 12-inch electric trailer brake assembly kit with left and right hand brake assemblies for 5200 pound to 7000 pound axles.

Took old brake assemblies off, and bolted new replacements on. This was very easy replacement of old electric trailer brakes. 696757


Quality, fast and affordable! Thank you 683481


Every thing fit great . Was very easy to install. Shipping time frame was quick. Didn't think to take pics , next time. Thanks 396554


This product is as good as Dexter if not better. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The brakes were shipped and arrived within 3-4 days. The only thing is they need to be wrapped or packaged a little better as there were a few small chips in the brake shoes when they arrived.. 386482


Just received these yesterday. Look great and I hope they will improve the braking of my 5th wheel rv. 643051


Great product at a excellent price. I purchased for two axles. I was disappointed that both of the left sides arrived with the brake shoes out of place. This took extra time as the springs had to be removed to reposition the shoes. 640897


Bought new left and right hand drum brake assemblies to replace the ones on my tandem axle 28ft toyhauler that were ruined due to axle grease blowing out the backside. Pleased to see they were Axletek assemblies. Install was easy, put new bearings and Dexter Wet bolt kit. 691143


I got these for a job I had,came real quick but was missing 1 spring .E trailer said they would send 1 out right away but I just used the old one it was fine .would definitely buy these again thanks Etailer 638418


Well, the bad first: my units were shipped in an oversized box with nothing separating them from one another but 2 layers of PAPER! Needless to say that when the box was so much as moved, they damaged each other. Unfortunately, my box was dropped and had a huge gash in it. This required me to repack and take back to the shipper the damaged units. The replacement units came in an exceptional shipping box and were undamaged. Obviously the first shipment was packed by an employee totally lacking in training. The good: they are excellent brake units. Fully painted and heavier than the original brakes and improved with a brass pivot mechanism that rotates and expands the brakes. My previous brakes were totally frozen at this mechanism. I would have given 5 stars if not for my shipping debacle and no consideration given to me by etrailer for ALL the hassle of having to deal with this. 515089


Waited to give a review until I towed my camper with these installed. Long story short, they are great! Should have done these years ago. Installation was a piece of cake and I could keep my brake controller at about 1/2 the power of my old brakes and get 2x the stopping power. Don't hesitate like I did just order and put them on. 388797


Very good quality brake kit, very easy install, looks just like OEM product. Very pleased. 557544


The brakes arrived on schedule and the shipping box looked good, but when I opened it I was a little taken aback because the brakes were allowed to move around and get together, which is not desirable for something as heavy as brakes and backing plates.The shoes were out of alignment and the springs and adjusters were missing on two of the assemblies. I was able to find all the parts and put them back together. The brakes were an exact replacement for the old ones and were easy to install, and I am happy again----Oscar 445138

After a year with no problems with my brakes , I am still satisfied with Etrailer products and will look to you for my parts and accessories in the future..Thanks
Oscar S - 10/29/2018



The product was exactly what I ordered, however, one set of brakes was not completed. The shoes weren't on correctly and I had to fight with this one brake for an hour just to get the springs off, set the shoes and put the springs back on again. Only for that reason did I give it four stars. 550169


Needed a set the brakes for my trailer 12 inch for a pair of 7000 pound axles. Easy to understand website, great service, arrived within two days after I ordered it using standard shipping, very fast, arrived just as advertised, very pleased!!!!!!! If you needed brake pads and a magnet and went to your local auto parts store the whole assembly is cheaper at etrailer.com, unbolt the old ones, bolt on the new ones, hook up two wires and you’re done, so easy! BW 472391


Free Shipping was fast n Free!!!! Well pleased with the product n the price was very competitive....selling the trailer but didn’t want to sell it with brakes not working so etrailer helped me put new brakes all the way around the trailer n didn’t break the bank. I have numerous trailers n will definitely buy from them again!!!!!! 522989


I had to replace 6 brakes on my 3 axle trailer and it was the easiest thing I have ever done. Took me 1 hour and 15 mins on each side, just remove the hub, take 5 bolts off and just hook the wires up. Everything is already ready to go, just had to adjust the pads, but super easy. I also priced it out if I was going to do everything separate and it was so much cheaper to go this route. I would highly recommend this product to anyone ready to replace their trailer brakes. 440892


I needed to replace wheel studs on ALKO hub. The etrailer prices for a complete new hub, nuts, bearings and free shipping promotion made it an easy choice to buy (2) new hubs and (2) electric brake assemblies rather that trying to repair my brakes and resurface my drums. Madison P. helped me to remember the backing plate mounting screws so I wasn't dealing with rusty, stripped fasteners. This will be a nice easy project using all new components rather than trying to find compatible components for ALKO axle. The order was shipped the same day even though I ordered late in the afternoon. The graphical tracking was fun to watch as the shipment progressed. I'll be curious to watch the how-to videos. I'm sure they give many people the knowledge to complete the installation with confidence. I'll look forward to my next purchase from etrailer.com 575225


These were exact fit, easy to replace and would definitely recommend. Definitely invest in the brake spoon tool ( bought one with my order) for adjusting these after the wheel is back on. Definitely worth it and etrailer nailed it again. In the photo, the axle on the right is the new brake assembly and the one on the left..... well that is the reason I bought four new brake assemblies!!!!! Thanks. 528246

Still working well. Have not had any issues to date .... knock on wood
Adam - 06/29/2019



Perfect match to my old brakes. Bolted right and wiring was easy. Great product, highly recommend!! 572007


While repacking my bearings on my 5th wheel RV the adjuster and part of a broken spring fell out onto the ground. Unsure of what part I needed customer service was able to help me determine which size axle was on my RV and which brake part would be required for the repair. They verified the part was in stock and emailed me the part numbers with a link for my review. I received the parts in two days and was able to install them easily, 426948


Great product!! Have purchased several sets of these over the years to replace the OE units as they wore out or got grease soaked. Quality parts, long shoe and magnet life and easy installation. Bought these for spares in case any of the grease seals leaked and trashed the shoes again. Have recommended to others and they are happy with their purchase also! 368341


Great quality parts and fitment quick shipping A+ 757214


They worked great! We have no complaints. Price was good, customer service was great, and product worked as it should. Thank you! 756455


Fast shipping and quick install worked perfectly 756220


The parts were all the right ones and most were Dexter oem parts. The only problem I had was putting the bolts in the frame end of the spring perch. It was easier to take the spring loose from the axle, put the bolt in ,then bolt it back to the axle. I intend to buy all of my future trailer parts from etrailer. 749786
