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.

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

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

by:

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

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

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!

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

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

New brakes assemblies installed, adjusted and work great. Easy install, easy everything. Wish the automatic adjusters but were on backorder but these are great so no regrets. 573182



- AKEBRK-6
by:

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

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

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

by:

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

Just look at the product that was sent to me from etrailer two left two right electric trailer brake kits 12” they are total assembled backing plates and all very good product it will take less time to put on and wire them up then if I would have got new brakes and all the parts and cleaning I would have to do would recommend this company to anyone great job to all the ladies and gentlemen at etrailers you where all very helpful thank you and I will be getting more things for my trailer soon 456072

I purchased new brakes for my boat trailer, electromagnetic drums and the price and quality were excellent. Had one small issue with the packaging and it was promptly corrected. I would highly recommend etrailer!! 406153



- AKEBRK-6
by:

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

Okay, the product shipped way before I thought it would, like within a day. When I opened the box and pulled the brakes out, the first three were great. The last one had a spring that had come off. I had a heck of a time trying to get it back on. Mostly cause I don't have brake tools anymore. Needle-nose pliers again just like when I was a kid doing brakes in the alley. Good memories! After getting the spring back on, the brakes went on with ease. Some would only give 3 to 4 stars because of the spring, but the service was great from start to finish. Thank you so much for helping me get my trailer back to camping again! Jerry B 647401

Over all I am happy with everything, the price parts fit up all very good. The only problem was some shipping damage one damaged grease seal I pick up another for $2.50 locally and two of the brakes the hardware had gotten knocked loose. Everything else worked out very well. very good product. I want to give you 4.5 out of 5 but the rating bar wont highlight for me 646411

Ordered complete brakes and bearings for 8 wheel 16 ton trailer. All mounted up very nicely and I am very pleased with the result. In addition to bearings and brakes I also replaced the lights and added a new 7 pin plug incl a new battery and emergency trailer brake and wirebox. I had never done any of these repairs before, but followed the tutorial videos on e-trailers site. Very happy with result and will recommend e-trailers to anyone that need trailer stuff. Keep up the good work. Thanks. 603976

All I can say is thank you. I have bought trailer packages before from other companies and these parts appear to be excellent quality. The shipping was quick, the follow up is there if you need it and I will be back. Only one thing is be sure to print your receipt when you get it confirmed before you close the page as there is no additional paper work with the shipment. My printer would not print the page from the order site. 599935

This is only way to go on new or replacement. Not worth time for individual components. Only minor issue was that units did not come with nuts to tighten to hub assembly. 598254

  • Wheel Bearings, Grease Seals and Electric Drum Brakes for 2002 Fleetwood Pride 5th Wheel Trailer
  • We can help you with replacement bearings, grease seals and electric drum brakes for the 6K axles on your 2002 Fleetwood Pride fifth wheel camping trailer. The best value in a pair of self-adjusting 12 x 2-inch electric drum brakes that will work great on your axles comes from Axle Teknology kit # AKEBRK-7-SA. You will need two kits to have four new brakes, two left-hand and two right-hand. These have the common 5-bolt mounting pattern. When you wire them you can use either wire for...

  • Replacement Electric Drum Brakes for Keystone Raptor 5th Wheel
  • I checked the Keystone website for details on your Raptor model 3912 but I could not find this model's axle specs. Since you want to choose brakes with the appropriate stopping power you'll just want to check your specs for the axles' rating or look for a sticker or plate on the axle beam that will tell you its weight rating. Chances are the axles are rated between 5200-lbs and 7000-lbs each. Based on your photo (thank you) and the weights of Raptor trailers you most likely have 12 x...

The self-adjusting drum brakes like the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-7-SA have an integrated mechanism that will automatically move the adjuster screw outward as the shoes begin to wear. This will ensure you are receiving the maximum performance and wear life from your brakes. The second option you have is...

  • Continuous Trailer Bearing Failures On Single Wheel
  • I am sorry to hear about all the issues you are having with your trailer. Based on what you described, I would lean towards an issue with the spindle rather than the weight capacity of the hubs. The reason being that if your hubs were truly underrated, you would most likely have issues with all of them not just the same spindle. The damage to your spindle is likely not noticeable however, it only takes a small degree off center to cause problems. If the angle at which the spindle lies in...

This hub has a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern so finding wheels to fit should be no problem. The idler hub assembly would be # 8-213-5UC1.

For a matching left- and right-hand set I suggest the Axle Tek kit # AKEBRK-7-SA which works with wheel sizes from 14-1/2-inches to 16-1/2-inches. These are self-adjusting brakes but we also have manual-adjust kit # AKEBRK-6.

  • Recommendation on Brake Assemblies to Fit a Horse Trailer with 5,500 Lbs Axles
  • I have found a set of brakes assemblies that will fit your trailer. I recommend the Electric Trailer Brake Kit Self-Adjusting Assemblies, # AKEBRK-7-SA. These brake assemblies are packaged to fit on axle rated at 5.2K to 7K. These assemblies are very similar to the set that you referenced, but these are self-adjusting brake assemblies. These brake will only need an initial adjustment during installation and after that they will self-adjust under normal use. I also recommend Bearing...

  • How to Find Replacement Electric Drum Brakes for a Trailer
  • If you need to find the size of the correct replacement braking assembly for your boat trailer you will need to remove the trailer hub and measure the inside contact patch with the shoes which you can see in the attached photo.

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies for Triple Axle Car Hauler
  • The most economical 12 by 2 inch brake assemblies for your trailer are # AKEBRK-6. These are manual adjust brakes for 5,200 pound to 7,000 pound axles.

They mount to a 5 bolt Brake Mounting Flange # 4-44-1 which should be welded by a professional trailer shop beause it requires a jig to be installed perfectly straight.

  • Electric Trailer Brakes to Replace Hayes/AL-KO Brakes on a Homemade Trailer

  • Replacement Braking Assemblies for a 2012 Jayco Jay Flight Series M-33 RLDS
  • I did some research and it appears that your 2012 Jayco Jay Flight Series M-33 RLDS has a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,300 lbs. Since you have dual dexter axles, it is likely that they either have a 5,200 lb capacity or a 3,500 lb capacity. The axle capacity will be needed to determine the correct replacement braking assemblies. If you have 3,500 lb axles then I recommend using the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-35-SA.

  • Can etrailer.com Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-6 Be Used with 17 or 18 Inch Wheels
  • The etrailer.com Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-6 referenced in your question can be used with wheel sizes of 14-1/2 inches, 15 inches, 16 inches, and 16-1/2 inches. The potential problem with using 12 inch assemblies like these with larger 17 or 18 inch wheels isn't necessarily due to the brakes themselves but the hubs they will fit, such as the etrailer.com # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K.
