Manual-Adjust Brake

With repeated use of this brake assembly, the brake shoes may move out of alignment, causing less efficient braking performance. To keep the brake shoes aligned and the brake assembly performing correctly, you should perform routine maintenance.


This brake assembly should be adjusted after installation and then as needed for the life of the brake. To adjust the brake, use a brake adjustment screw tool (sold separately) to turn the adjustment gear on the inside of the assembly. 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

This brake assembly meets the requirements for certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The CSA creates standards, which when complied with ensure a safe and quality product. This brake assembly underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. This brake has 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 this brake assembly 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 AKEBRK-6R Review

Today we're going to take a look at the 12 inch right hand electric brake assembly for 6,000 pound axles. Now, electric brakes are easier to install and they offer more user control than hydraulic brakes. Electric brakes require only an electric brake controller. We do sell those separately on our website. They do not need an actuator or hydraulic line. The brake shoes on this brake assembly, they are lined with an automotive grade friction material.

Now this friction material is fully bonded. It's not rooted to the shoes, gives you longer life, more braking torque. The lining also has tapered edges on it and they do a circular grinding to the material to prevent cracking and crumbling that can lead to mechanical lockup. This is a manual adjustment brake, and on a manual adjustment brake that does require periodic adjustments, and the nice thing is on this one, the gear down here to adjust the brakes with. It is a fine-tooth brake adjustment gear, and that will allow for a more precise setting. Also there is no break-in period needed on these.

The backing plate that the brake assembly is attached to is a e-coated backing plate, so it helps resist wear and corrosion. The other nice thing just to mention is this adjuster plug if you see down at the bottom here, there's this plug in the hole here. That adjuster plug is included. On a lot of brake assemblies they don't include that and that hole stays open, and that opening is where you'd put your tool through to adjust the brakes, and if that stays open and you put your brake trim on sometimes dirt can get in there and cause problems with your brake assembly, so you do want to always have a plug in there to keep any dirt or debris from getting in there. This one does come with the adjuster plug.

Now the mounting bolts, nuts, and lock washers to install this onto your brake frames. They are sold separately. This brake assembly is certified for QAI, which is Quality Assurance International, and CSA, which is Canadian Standards Association. The size of this assembly is a 12 inch by two inch and this is a right hand or passenger side electric trailer brake assembly. Now the size, when they say 12 by 2, what they're describing is the diameter and then the width of the pad. If we put a ruler on the diameter you can see 12 inches, and then the width of the pad is 2 inches, so that's the 12 by 2.

Now this being a right hand or passenger side that has a sticker on it that says right hand so you'll know by that, but if that sticker wasn't there a tip that'll help you determine what side this is for is just look at the shoes. If you look at the pad here and then look at this one. It's a lot longer. The pad is the shorter one right here. That will always face the front of the trailer, so if that's going to the front that means this would be the passenger side or right hand side. That's the easy way to tell what side the brake assembly goes on. This is designed for the 6,000 pound rated axles. It does use a 5 bolt brake mounting flange. If you look at the back here, the five holes. You do want to make sure when this is installed that the brake mounting flange is a five bolt pattern. This does use 12 inch drums, and these are electric brakes so it does have wires you need to connect, the two wires here to come out the back. You can see there's two black wires. You have your magnet here so you do have to supply power for that magnet to operate. The two wires, basically one will go to the brake feed to supply power to that magnet. The other goes to the ground, and you can do either one. They're both a black wire, so either wire can be used for either function. Doesn't matter which one for which. That should do it for the review of the 12 inch right hand electric brake assembly for 6,000 pound axles.

Excellent choice. I am very happy with my order. My trailer was done in no time. Brakes I ordered fit perfectly. Now it's done and I am happy and so as everyone on the road. Thanks etrailer. 338227

I ordered 4 non-self adjusting brake sets and recieved 2 self adjusting right sides and 2 non-self adjusting left sides. I needed the project to be complete and I installed them. When i tok the out of the boxs, there was some rebuilding as things were out of alignment from shipping. Initial adjustments on both sets was a little more time consuming because of the lack of large adjustments, but once set they are great. The electrical hook ups were easy. They stop my 5000+lb camp trailer just fine. Finally, hardware being purchased separately is annoying. They should be packaged together and the hardware should be free with purchase of the brake sets. 483775

Arrived just when I needed them! Fairly easy to install on our horse trailer and worked without a hassle. Even with 2nd day shipping, was a much cheaper option to local alternatives. Did not take a pic after they were installed, but they arrived looking just like the picture on the site. 297603

Now this is the way to go. Complete brake assembly. Just unbolt, snip magnet wires, bolt back on and wire magnet. No more bust knuckles trying to put on springs. Would have been 5 stars, but was looking on the back and "made in China", There is more reason to be buying and supporting china! What ever happened to Made In USA, and putting $$$$ in American pockets to support American workers? 305698

When installing this brake kit be careful with the wires. The left side is prone to pinch the wires due to where they go through the backing plate. I had my son in law helping me. He pinched one and I pinched the other between the axle plate and the back plate. Had to put heat shrink over the damaged insulation. But, the brakes work great. They are a very good deal for the money! 292791

Just like everyother time i order from here it arrived in only a few days with standard shipping. Pakaged efficiently, and even though i havent installed the parts yet i opened a few boxes to inspect and im very confident its all there and correct. As far as the parts go they are not the best ones out there but if it keeps me on the road and stopping for this price im in. 294046

One of four brake assemblies was damaged in shipment. A replacement was shipped immediately after a pleasant conversation with customer service. The replacement came quickly and returning the damaged assembly was as easy as it could be with the provided return label and the box from the replacement unit. I've installed the other three at this point, with no trouble. 458673

Very good bang for the buck, makes it not worthwhile to put parts or shoes on an old assembly. After the shoes seated in, i readjusted and they have been great. One note is that it does not include the fasteners to hold the assembly to the axle, so you will either need to reuse yours (mine were rusted to h*ll and back) or plan to make a trip to the hardware store. 487246

Received the shipment in excellent time......got the assemblies yesterday afternoon and am up and running the following afternoon. Everthing was there as stated in the website. Take off (5) nuts, clip the wiring to the magnets, remove the old assemblies and replace with the new assemblies torque per specs. I would recommend this product price and quality. 339888

  • Recommendation for Trailer Brakes On a 16 Foot Enclosed Trailer with 2 Axles And 5,000 LB GVW
  • If your trailer does not have brakes on the axles at this time then I would recommend putting brakes on at least one axle. Many car haulers and utility style trailers with 7,000 pound gross trailer and load weight ratings have brakes on only one axle. If you plan on using your trailer often and loading it near or to capacity, then brakes on both axles would make stopping with the trailer much easier and safer, and would save wear and tear on your vehicle braking system. If the trailer...

  • Trailer Brakes Lock Up When Hooked to Breakaway Battery
  • It sounds like you found out why the brakes were activated while you were towing the trailer to storage, so that solves that problem. Now we will want to figure out why the brakes are still locking up with the new breakaway switch. Even if you fried the brake magnets, the brakes should not lock up if the breakaway system is setup properly. I recommend inspecting the wiring of the breakaway system on your trailer to see why power is reaching the brake assemblies. I have attached a wiring...

  • Recommended Electric Brake Assemblies and Hub Drums for a 26ft Gooseneck Trailer
  • If your brake assemblies mount on a plate using 5 bolts, you most likely would be looking for a 12 inch diameter brake assembly like part # AKEBRK-6R and # AKEBRK-6L, but you could verify this by measuring directly across the center of your drum or the brake assembly. To recommend the correct hub drum for your application, I would need to know your current hub bolt pattern, as well as the bearings it uses. In order to determine your hub drum bolt pattern, you would need to measure...

  • Merits of Replacing Drum Brakes vs. Rebuilding Drum Brakes
  • We do offer all kinds of replacement brake parts for both electric and hydraulic drum brakes, including shoes, springs, actuating levers, etc. But many folks do determine, after reviewing all the parts needed and their total cost, that the time savings of simply replacing the entire brake assembly often makes that option preferable overall. Sometimes it does not even cost much more than replacing just the worn parts. Apart from cost and time to do the servicing there is also the benefit...

  • Torque Spec for Tightening Trailer Brake Assemblies to Trailer Spindle
  • The attachment bolts for a 5-bolt brake assembly like the part # AKEBRK-6R should be torqued to 30-50 foot/lbs. If you don't have a torque wrench handy, if you tighten the bolts until the lock washers flatten out, you'll be pretty darn close to that range.

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Brake Assemblies for a 5,400 lb Trailer
  • To pick out the correct brake assemblies for your trailer you need to know a few things. You will want to measure the inner diameter of your hub/drums and the depth of the drums to determine what brake assembly dimensions you need. For example the part # AKEBRK-6R that you referenced is a 12 inch by 2 inch thick brake assembly. You also want to determine what the bolt pattern is of your assembly mounting flange. The standard size is 4 on 4 inch or 5 like the one you referenced. You...

  • Adjusting Power and Sync Settings on Draw-Tite Activator II Trailer Brake Controller
  • The braking power you feel when using your trailer brake controller will depend on the power setting selected on the controller as well as the chosen setting on the Sync control. The sync determines the level of braking aggressiveness by changing how quickly the unit sends the chosen power level to the brakes. The other factor affecting braking force is the adjustment at each brake assembly. An electric drum brake like # AKEBRK-6R has a star wheel adjuster that can be adjusted using...

If you had bearings go out in the hub and you continued to drive on them for a while, to the point where the hub is damaged it would be time for the hub to be replaced.

For manual-adjust brakes you can use left- and right-hand parts # AKEBRK-6L and # AKEBRK-6R which fit wheels sizes from 14-1/2 to 16-1/2-inches. If you prefer the self-adjusting type you can use Dexter # 23-458 and # 23-459. Both types use the same 5-bolt mounting flange. If...

  • Timbren Axle-Less Suspension for 10,000 Pound Mobile Hydraulic Lift
  • A tow-behind hydraulic lift is going to need to be stable so I recommend using a tandem axle set up just like you mentioned. That would equate to using 2 sets of Timbren Axle-Less systems rated for 5,200 pounds for a total capacity of 10,400 pounds. We have a couple of options in this capacity: # ASR5200S01 has regular spindles; no rise or drop, and # ASR5200S04 has a 4 inch drop spindle meaning that it will lower the trailer by 4 inches. For a hub and drum assembly that will fit...

  • Trailer Brakes Getting Hot and Smoking on a 2006 Dutchmen Sportsman
  • It sounds like the brake assembly got stuck and would not revert back after releasing the truck brakes. This could happen if there is a mechanical issue such as debris or corrosion causing the mechanism to bind up, or it could be an electrical issue such as a short that caused the magnet to stay stuck to the armature surface inside the drum. You will want to pull the hub and drum assembly off and inspect the inside of the drum. If the armature surface is gouged or discolored or if the...

  • How To Find Replacement Hub and Drum For Dexter Axle
  • It sounds like you are needing to replace the hub and drum assemblies on your trailer. The B12E-22 number you mentioned in your question does indeed correspond to an electric brake assembly, specifically the etrailer.com # AKEBRK-6R for the Right Hand and # AKEBRK-6L for the Left Hand. If you are just needing the brake assemblies, this will be all that you need and will provide a perfect replacement. I was unable to find any information on your existing hub/drum using the 8D-555PA-D7...

  • Testing and Replacing Brakes on a 2012 Carriage Cameo Trailer
  • I've attached an article to help you test the magnets. You also should inspect the wiring for the brake that's giving you issues. If you need to replace the brake you don't have to do both. However, it might be easier in the long run and if the others are showing wear it's a good idea. It can save you time and money later. To determine which brakes to get you can measure the inside diameter of your drums. If they're 12 inch drums then I recommend using # AKEBRK-7-SA. These are...

  • Replacement Hub and Drum Assemblies with Inner Bearing 25580 and Outer Bearing 15123
  • If the existing inner and outer bearings on your trailer are indeed # 25580 and # 15123 respectively, then the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K referenced in your question will work perfectly. You will also just want to take note of the axle capacity on your trailer, as this assembly is designed for 5,200 to 6,000 pound axles. The taper that you mentioned on your trailer's spindle is not an issue. This hub and drum assembly features a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern and the...

  • Can TruRyde Electric Brakes Be Used on a Boat Trailer When Converting to Electric Brakes
  • Traditionally, boat trailers used hydraulic surge breaks since electricity and water don't usually mix well. But we are seeing more and more boat trailers come out of the factory with electric brakes. The trailer brake assemblies I recommend for you are the etrailer.com Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # AKEBRK-6R for the Right Hand side and # AKEBRK-6L for the Left Hand side. These will work for your boat trailer once you've converted from surge to electric brakes. The etrailer.com...

  • Why Would Fifth Wheel Trailer Brakes Lock Up Until Trailer Battery is Disconnected
  • Sounds like your trailer has a breakaway system on that had the plunger pulled and now the brakes want to lock up as long as it is connected to a battery. Check out the help articles I attached on breakaway systems. They will help you identify where yours is at and help you test it. The switch would look like the part # 2005-P. Which if your plunger was pulled and was missing this would work well as a replacement to allow you to get your trailer going again.
