Self-Adjusting Brakes Don't Require Routine Adjustment

Standard electric brake assemblies require manual adjustment of the brake shoes over time to provide longer-lasting and more efficient braking performance. With self-adjusting brakes, the brake shoes are always properly aligned, so there's no need to manually adjust the brakes after the initial adjustment. As a result, you get optimum performance without having to take the time to continually perform this type of maintenance.


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 Electric Trailer Brake Kit Self-Adjusting Left and Right Hand Assemblies Installation

Today on our trailer we will be installing the eTrailer Axle Technology Electric Trailer Brake Assembly, self-adjusting for the right hand side, for 5,200 pound to 7,000 pound axles. It is part number AKEBRK-7R-SA. It's also available as an assembly for the left hand side, part number AKEBRK-7L-SA. The left and right brakes are also sold as a pair with part number AKEBRK-7-SA. Here's a look at our new brake assembly. What we're looking at here is the left hand side brake assembly, but the right hand side installs in exactly the same manner. As you can see, it's an entire new assembly, new backing plate, new shoes, all new springs, a new self-adjuster, and a brand new magnet.

This is a quick and easy installation versus us repairing your worn out magnet or your warn out shoes. Just a matter of unbolting the old one, putting the new one on, and connecting your new wires. It saves you a lot of time, a lot of effort, and money in the long run. The nice thing about this brake assembly that we have here today is the fact that it is self-adjusting. Once you do your initial adjustment once you install it, you don't have to worry about adjusting it ever again.

It will take care of that for you. First thing we need to do is take off our tire and wheel assembly. We'll take off our entire wheel and set it aside. Now we need to take off our grease cap on our hub assembly. Use a screwdriver. We'll just tap it in there to get behind it.

We'll take off our keeper here on our nut. Just pry it off. Then we can remove our nut. With our nut removed, we can now remove our hub assembly. Once our hub assembly is off, we can take off our outer bearing and our spacer washer here and set those aside.

We will be replacing our hubs and our bearings so we don't need to worry about saving any of the bearings or removing the seal. We'll just set this aside and have it out of our way. Now we'll cut our wires that goes to our brake assemblies, unwrap this so we can see what we're working with here. Little snip back here to get rid of the butt connector. We'll have the new one. You can see this isn't a heat shrink butt connector; it's just a standard butt connector. We replace them with heat shrink butt connectors so it will be more weatherproof. Now before we get dirty, we're going to need to clean off this grease. We'll just take a shop towel here and wipe it off our spindle. This way is a good time to inspect your spindle too and make sure there's no deep gouging, cracks, or burns on it. Ours is looking pretty clean so far. Now that our spindle's cleaned off, we can remove our brake assembly here. I just want to point out that our brake assembly is covered in brake dust so you want to make sure you're wearing gloves when you're doing this just because a brake dust can be harmful to your health. There's five nuts that hold our brake assembly onto our axle. With all five of our nuts now removed, we can take our brake assembly, pull it off. We can discard it. Now we can slide our new assembly on. We'll make sure we have our wires up and out of the way behind it so they don't get pinched behind our backing plate here. We'll just slide it onto our axle, line up our studs, push it on. You want to make sure your magnet is facing down towards the bottom. If we did it like this, you see it's no longer on the bottom. We did it like this, it's off to the sides. You want to have it as close to the bottom as possible. Right there is perfect for our application. We'll take our nuts and we'll reinstall them. Now when we tighten these down, we'll want to make sure we go in a star pattern just like you would when you're tightening down the lug nuts on a wheel. You would do diagonally across, back, down, and then back up. You never want to do two that are next to each other at the same time. Now we're going to torque these down. Again, just like we did with snugging them down, we'll go in an alternating pattern. Now that our new brake assembly has been torqued down, we can make our electrical connections to the existing wires on the trailer. Now because trailer brakes utilize a magnet, it doesn't matter which wire goes to where. We'll take our existing wires here, strip back some insulation, take two heat shrink butt connectors. We have these available on our website if you need to purchase them. Install them onto the wire. We'll crimp it down into position. Now since these are a smaller diameter gage wire, what I like to do is fold the wire back in half on itself like that so it's a little bit thicker. Then we can crimp it down into our connector. Now we'll take our heat gun and we'll shrink our butt connectors. With this heat shrink butt connectors now heat shrinked, we have a nice, secure, weather-tight connection and we won't have to worry about moisture getting in there and causing corrosion and causing our trailer brakes to work inadequately. Now you have the option to to reinstall your old hub assembly, but while you have it off it is a good time to replace it. That is what we will be doing here. The hub assembly we are using is part number AKHD-865-7-2-K. Now we'll begin our installation by first packing our wheel bearings. We'll start with the inner one first. We'll take a tub of grease, drop the bearing on down in there, spin it around a little bit, get it nice and coated. Then we'll start working our grease into our rollers. If you need to purchase any axle grease, we do have this available on our website. Now that I'm holding the inner section of the bearing and moving the outer section, and it feels nice and smooth, what we're going to do is we'll put some grease around the inside of it and we'll coat the outer portion of the bearing as well. We'll drop our wheel bearing into our hub. Now we can install our grease seal. Just put it down in position into our hub. Now you can use a seal installer if you have one. I don't have one large enough to do this so I'm going to use the old fashioned block of wood trick. I'll stick it on top of it, make sure it's sitting nice and flush, and we'll tap it in with our hammer. As you can see, that pushed our seal in nice and straight and it didn't cause any damage to it. Now that our seal is fully installed, I always like to take a clean shop towel with some brake parts cleaner and clean off our area where our shoes will contact just in case there's any oil or grease from manufacturing on our hub assembly. We'll flip it on over and we'll work on packing our inner bearing at this time. We'll work all this grease on the outer bearing just like we did the inner one. We'll set it aside right there. We'll slide our new hub assembly onto our spindle. Now we can install our outer wheel bearing. Slide it into place. We'll take our washer here, slide it onto position. We'll reinstall our nut. We'll rotate our hub a little bit while we tighten the nut down. Make sure where good free play in our bearings, which we do. It rotates nice and smooth. That grinding noise you're hearing are our brake shoes rubbing against our drum. That's normal. We have to adjust those a little bit here shortly. Now we'll reinstall our tab here which holds our lock nut in place. Now before we reinstall our grease cap I always like to take a little bit of grease, put it in there just so, if it needs to, it can work its way into the bearings. We'll take our new cap, place it into our hub, and we'll tap it in. Clean off our excess grease. Now I always like to put the wheel and tire back on the hub before we adjust our brakes just so we can rotate the brake assembly easier and get the proper feel. Now we'll tighten down our new lug nuts, they use a 13/16 socket, making sure we go in a crisscross pattern. We'll torque all of our lug nuts once we have our trailer back down on the ground. Now that everything's installed, we need to do our initial adjustment on our trailer brakes. Once we have them adjusted properly, we don't ever have to worry about adjusting them again because they are self-adjusting. We'll take out this back cap here. I'm going to be using a brake spoon. We have these available on our website if you would like to purchase one. We'll adjust our star wheel adjuster down while rotating the wheel to make sure our brakes are starting to grab more. Once we have light drag on the brakes, we know they're adjusted properly. We have light drag. As you can see, I'm putting a little bit of effort into the tire to move the wheel assembly. Once we're right about here, our brakes are properly adjusted and we can reinstall our dust cap. Now we're going to spin our wheel and have our assistant activate our brake controller on our tow vehicle. You can see our brakes are now working properly. That completes our installation of the eTrailer Axle Technology Electric Trailer Brake Assembly, self-adjusting, for the right side, for 5,200 pound to 7,000 pound axles, part number AKEBRK-7R-SA.

I replaced the (4) brakes on my 8 month old 5th wheel trailer due to leaking grease seals. While I was in there, I wanted to "upgrade" to self-adjusting brakes and this brake kit fit the bill splendidly. Installation was straightforward--simple and easy. Initial brake adjustment was easier with the new kit than adjusting the OEM brakes I was replacing (the adjusting stars line up with the adjuster holes in the backing plates on the new brakes--not so much on the OEM brakes). The self-adjusters work as they should--used to be I'd apply the trailer brakes only from time to time (in a parking lot or fuel station) to check on how the OEM brakes were working and whether or not it was time for a brake adjustment. I still check my trailer brakes in the same manner, however, I've not had to adjust the new shoes since the initial install...very convenient. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my new brakes and the service from etrailer. P.S. I've uploaded a set of "before & after" pictures... easy to tell the difference, eh? Have you checked your brakes lately? 486715

Originally wanted to just repack wheel bearings, so I pulled a wheel to find out which Grease Seals to order. Found brake shoes worn a lot. Because the price on a complete assembly was sooo reasonable, I ordered 4 assemblies plus seals. Turns out the other three (original) brake assemblies had blown grease seals. What a mess! Not to mention my experience of poor to no braking power! So glad I ordered new, complete brake assemblies. No mess, no fuss. Just pull old assembly, cut wires, replace new assembly, splice wires- Done! BTW - one of the new assemblies had a crack in the shoe - probably from being banged in shipping. etrailer replaced it right away and I returned the cracked one. What GREAT service! I have attached a pic of one of the old assemblies w the blown grease seal so you can see how reasonable it is to just buy and replace the whole thing vs. all the clean up that you would need to do if you did just the shoes. 513017

I sent a question to etrailer.com Re: brake assemblies for my 1964 Airstream RV. I got a prompt response explaining how to measure the old brakes on the trailer to correctly size the brakes I needed. Finding the size allowed me to research the hub & bearing assemblies I also needed. I ordered them all with confidence they'd fit. Installed the self adjusting Electric Brake Assemblies along with the Hub kit with bearings, All parts fit together perfectly. Thanks George. 419448

I ordered 2 sets of these backing plates for my 2008 Equipment trailer with tandem 5200 lbs axles (6 Lug Pattern) and the package arrived incredibly fast, it only took about 3-4 days from the time I ordered them to the time they arrived at my doorstep. It's most impressive because they came from the USA and I live in Canada so that's incredibly fast shipping. The products were very easy for me to install. I actually just finished installing all 4 of them on my trailer this morning. It was a very easy job, removing the old worn out plates with the brand new ones I ordered. I've never changed these before in my life, but I watched the etrailer video on replacing back plates on YouTube and went off of what they demonstrated in the video, and it made this whole procedure a peace of cake. Definitely worth the money and time doing a job like this yourself if you have the right tools and know how. etrailer's videos online make these installs incredibly straight forward, I know they helped me out tremendously. 427771

I have ordered from etrailer.com on other occasions and for the most part what keeps me coming back in the pricing. They usually have the lowest price for the same original equipment. Be careful if you haven't heard that your product has shipped in a reasonable amount of time, even if their website says they have the item in stock. They will hold your order until they have all the parts to ship. I had not seen a shipped email for almost a week and when I called they said they would have it to ship in mid august, about a month after I ordered. I was told they had a similar item in stock ready to ship now if I wanted to change my order. I appreciated that and did change my order, however, I needed to know that information at the time they knew it because I had to change my vacation plans because I could not get the parts in time to take our 5th wheel. Overall this is a good place to order parts from and I will keep doing so. 414913

These brake backing plates are great and really cost about the same as buying shoes and springs separately...but this way they come pre-assembled. These come with new mounting bolts and nuts. The nuts DO NOT appear to be of good quality and I would advise against using them. (use your originals) Replacing all four backing plates on my trailer, I broke out the digital torque wrench to torque the 5 backing plate nuts/bolts to the recommended 50ft-lb. At less than 30 ft-lb of torque, I noticed they would not get any tighter, although I was backing up the bolt with a wrench. I removed the nut to find the treads had pulled thru the nut, not cross threaded as I hand tightened them initially, but the threads just gave up. Bolts still looked ok. I replaced with my originals and all is ok. Don't trust these supplied nuts without verifying torque with a torque wrench. If I was etrailer, I would remove them from the kit. 468170

So Disappointed!! This is a review of my order experience, not the product. I needed to replace the brake assemblies on my camper before we could go on vacation. I call to see how long it would take to receive and was told 2 days. I placed the order and received as told. I was about to be impressed until I opened the box. They not only sent the wrong brand, but also the wrong size. I called customer service and had to wait 45 minutes for someone answer. She agreed it was their mistake. I told her I only had two more days to get them on and still go on vacation. I asked for next day delivery. She was able to do that, but said it would ship that day and go 2nd day. The next day, the order had not shipped and the tracking number I was given doesn't even register on UPS. I don't when or if I will receive the correct product. Very disappointed that they would not step up and make it right. 402822

I ordered two sets of these to replace grease soaked shoes and magnets. They arrived very quickly and the installation was a breeze. Just remove the old ones and clip the two brake wires. Install the new plate sets paying attention to side labels (Left = drivers side, Right = curb side). Reconnect the brake wires (polarity doesn't matter). Torque the mounting nuts according to the instructions found on this website. I recommend using a torque wrench on the mounting bolts, but there are a set of instructions on this site about how to guess at the torque if you don't have a torque wrench. I also recommend using silicone filled wire nuts on the brake wires. I like them better than the IDC (Insulation Displacement Connector) splices. I'd definitely recommend buying the loaded plates instead of trying to replace the shoes and magnet on your existing plates. 388431

Brakes arrived in good order. Though I was concerned about packaging, the brakes were fine. Today I'll be installing, and write another review. 1st time ordering from Etrailer...and first time replacing brakes on my Keystone Toyhauler. Though I "found" what I though were the proper setup, I called Customer Service for help to make sure. Pat, confirmed my choice with her expert knowledge. So far, so good... Now...time to install. 415246

I am replacing the brakes on our 2016 Forest River Shockwave Toyhauler. After removing the wheel drums to repack the bearings, I noticed splattered grease covering the entire brake system of each wheel. Most likely due to me over greasing the EZ lube axles. The brake assembles I ordered and received were exactly the same I was replacing which made the job very simple. I made the initial adjustments then took the trailer out for a test drive to break-in the shoes. They feel better than new. Ordering was very straight forward and shipping arrived a day sooner than expected. I will continue to use etrailer.com for my future trailer/towing needs. Now I know how many pumps of the grease gun it takes to adequately lube each axle. 505053

Product arrived very quickly. Quality parts. Had to replace pads due to easy lub system failure. Grease pumped in past seal saturated pads on and in everything. More cost effective to replace the whole assembly. Parts were a perfect replacement for Lippert factory parts. Very pleased with eTrailer and product. 361576

Decided to spoil my equipment trailer with a new set of brakes. While searching the web I came across Etrailer mostly because their prices were the lowest and the website was easy to navigate. Shipping was free and amazingly fast. Ordered on Tues. and UPS delivered on Friday. Let me start by saying i'm no trailer mechanic! These brake assemblies were just what I needed. I watched the install video and the job went smooth and without any problems. I highly recommend this to anyone intimidated by brake shoes and springs. Just bolt on the entire brake assembly in one piece, replace the hub, a quick brake adjustment and your on your way. It doesn't get any easier! 358278

Bad: Read the fine print on e trailer before you purchase. I paid with a debit card. It took 2 months for my hubs to be shipped. I thought they charged my card at the time of purchase. They charged 2 months later. This would of been OK if it were a credit card. They almost made me bounce a check by charging my debit card 2 months later. Ok, heres my mistake, I ordered the wrong thing. I am willing to pay the $28 shipping back to you. They charged $28 shipping and a fee of $38. My bill was $224. I was refunded $158. I will not do business with them again. Wonder if they will delete this comment. Good: They are very polite. 465561

Chelsey at Customer Service was very professional and knowledgeable. My brake assemblies arrived very quickly and were a perfect fit for my 09 Montanna which has Dexter 7K axles. The assemblies appear to be the same quality as my OEM brakes and were half the price of the Dexter brand. Hav’nt had a chance to road test yet because I discovered a broken suspension part, during this brake job, and I’m waiting for that part to come in. I have bought from etrailer in the past and have always had, including this order, great service at a great price!! I highly recommend this company for all your trailer part needs!! 457287

The product arrived in a timely manner and well packaged. All items were included and correct. The primary product was self-adjusting electric brakes and backplate for my 6K axles. The fully assembled units were clearly marked for right and left applications and appear to be of high quality. They fit perfectly. Although the entire process of cleaning the drums/hubs and cleaning and re-packing the bearings took several hours, the replacement of the brake units was very easy and took about five minutes each. An additional one to two minutes per unit is required to do the initial brake adjustment. 509556

Seriously, this an awesome value for my money. ALL new parts and simple installation. Was thrilled to throw away all of the rusted mess of broken parts that were on this trailer when I bought it. Look it over when installing as one assembly had the shoes knocked out of position from rough handling during shipping...that will happen as it was a heavy box. Arrived quickly and was ready for it, installed same day. Pay attention and adjust the brakes after installation equally and consistently and they work great. Totally happy! Wish I would have found this company sooner. Thank you! 516374

Order arrived very quickly. Placed on Friday, arrived on Tuesday from Mo to Pa. Items were packed well and arrived in good condition. Upon initial inspection all items appear of good quality. Ordered tires, brakes with backing plates, hubs ,seals and grease. Haven't installed any items yet, but I am sure I will have no issues. Free shipping is a plus. Additionally unlike other free shipping offers that are out on the back burner for a week, order was processed and shipped promptly. I have recommended etrailer to friends and would highly recommend them to anyone. 373540

I will be a loyal customer from now on. very good products and service, please please keep up the good work. 420517

I ordered four complete self adjusting brake assemblies, along with grease seals for my 5th wheel trailer. Their was a problem with the condition of the parts when they arrived, & I contacted etrailer. Rachael got right back to me & did whatever she could to make the problem better. Once the parts were correctly assembled the brakes & seals fit the trailer, & worked as they should. My thanks to the staff at etrailer for stepping up, & supplying quality parts. They give service after the sale. John 371971

These are outstanding backing plates and brakes setups. I ordered four of these for my 1997 Sunnybrook fifth wheel. Everything is preassembled! All I had to do was adjust the brakes a little to get the new hubs over them and that was all. Five nuts to remove and replace. Great product! 382238


Comments

The Drums, Bearings and Backing plates I installed from your company have worked GREAT! I have not had a single issue with their operation. I even accidentally ordered the incorrect seals, and that was handled perfectly! Thanks so much for carrying and supplying QUALITY parts and having excellent customer service!

Product design and function was acceptable. Packaging caused some movement of the components. One required some disassembly to correct the problem. The other was corrected by hand movement. It was obvious that the assemblies had contacted each other during shipment and dislodged the components. Brake assemblies should be individually boxed and placed into a larger container. This could manifest as a safety issue if the customer was unaware of the component movement. 383911

Received my order on the days that was indicated, items look as advertised, have not been able to install due to weather. I did view your installation guide and it answered the initial adjustment question. I spoke with Derck on the purchase and he was most helpful. The first item I open had a small chip on the shoe hope this will not be and issue. Overall I have been very please with service and product hope to order more items as I need them. Glen 399452

Installed this brake kit on a Military Light Tactical M1102 Humvee Cargo Trailer. These bolted up just like they were made for it and work extremely well. I did have to use new nuts and bolts as the old bolts were pressed into the backing plate. Total job time was about an hour. I was not able to use the old hand brakes as they wouldn't attach to the new electric brake assemblies. Overall this was a good purchase, price and shipping couldn't be beat. 500224

The parts look good, as most new things do. I have not installed yet and can't say how they work. Unfortunately, your packaging is by far the WORST I've seen. Four heavy brake assemblies in a big box with a piece of paper OVER the top! Chimps can do better.. So after a three day UPS ride, four break assemblies smashing into each other arrived with chipped break linings and various loose pieces in the bottom of the huge box. Not a great selling point 427490

Brakes were exactly as they said on the website. I would say that I wish they had a cross reference from older brake numbers to the new ones. I received the brakes in 2 days using the free shipping and replaced all 4 wheels on my trailer. 417146

These backing plates already assembled with brakes and self adjusters are a no brainer. They will make you're life so much easier and for everything that you get the cost is rediculously low. The quality was great and installation was so easy a child could do it. I did all four wheels new backing plates and drums with bearings and everything for 100 per wheel shipped. Crazy good deal....will definitely shop from etrailer.com again 374951

The break parts I ordered arrive without any damage and fit like they should. Installation went smoothly and without any trouble total time I spent was right at 30 minutes per wheel, that includes cleaning and repacking the wheel bearings. I worked with "Robert " who was very knowledgeable and helped me to order the right parts to get my trailer back on the road! If I need anything else I will use them First. 486386

So far so good. They take a bit to adjust to where they need to be. After that they work great. My advise is to find a back road after installing them. Go about 30mph and keep using the electric brake control in the cab to manually turn on the trailer brakes. Constant on and off for a few miles. You will feel them adjusting and biting harder while doing this. After that they will be good to go. 432904

I have been in business for over 30 years and a hobby of mine is I look at different company operations thinking what could be done to improve their service and etrailer.com does it right. From tracking your order, emails and videos on products you just purchased. This allows you all the information you need to install you parts right the first time. Great Job! 496446

Purchased replacement brakes for the trailer. Very easy install and they work well. Only problem I had was the items were a little beat up when received. Had to re-align brake shoes on a couple backing plates. The shoes were off the pin at the top of the backing plate. Probably bounced around during shipping. Overall, great product! 409937

Arrived faster than expected. Only negative so far, was adjustment bolt was laying in the bottom of the box from one of the plates. No big deal, just reinstalled. Springs around the adjustment bolt, look a little weak compared to the original, but time will tell. Will install new brake plates in the coming days. 356989

I recently purchased a gooseneck trailer and took it to my local shop in town to have the wheel bearings repacked and they told me the brakes were bad. I called etrailer and talked to Lisa and she set me up with item AKEBRK-7-SA at an attractive cost. The brakes went on perfectly and work great. Thanks! 469783

I bought these along with the etrailer hubs and they work great. They were a fraction of the cost of name brand products but do not appear to lack in quality. Also, the shipping time was outstanding! I ordered 6 hubs, bearings, seals and e-brakes and everything was delivered in 2 days! 375031

I replaced all four brake assemblies on my 2000 Cardinal 32 fifth wheel with two 6,000# axles. Went on fairly easy, good quality assemblies. All wheels within 5 degrees of same temperature, so braking quite evenly. Good stopping distance, which should improve as they fully break-in. 407786

Installed on my 2015 Montana High Country 5th wheel. Original brakes were poor at best and I finally upgraded to the self-adjusting brakes from e-trailer. Very happy with ease of installation and brake performance with new brakes. Stopping is no longer a white knuckle experience. 498926

I purchased 4 loaded drum brake backing plates for my trailer and everything was excellent except the packaging. Because of the way they were packaged two of the shoes were chipped up along the edges. I used them as is since I was short on time but was a bit discouraged about it. 374477

Do you have a question about this Trailer Brake?


  • Replacement Brake Shoes and Complete Brake Assemblies for Axle Tek 12 x 2-Inch Trailer Brakes
  • If you had an accidental grease leak within your trailer's hub/drums and the shoes were exposed to grease you will want to replace them. The brake shoe material has porosity that will let some of that wheel bearing grease work into the surface. It is not possible to completely clean this grease off. You can clean the drums but either the brake shoes or the entire brake assemblies should be replaced. I checked your ordering history and found that you have 12 x 2-inch Axle Tek brakes rated...

  • Recommended Self-Adjusting Brake Assemblies for 7,000 lb Axles
  • For your 7,000 lb axles with 8 bolt hubs, the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 5.2K to 7K # AKEBRK-7-SA or the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 7K # 23-464-465 will be a great fit. The 5-bolt they are referring to is the mounting flange on your axle for the brake assemblies. All 7,000 lb axles will have either a 4 bolt (AL-KO Axle) or 5 bolt assembly (all other brands) with 5 being...

  • How Do Self-Adjusting Brakes Adjust and Does it Work Going Forward or Reverse
  • Self-adjusting brakes # AKEBRK-7-SA do not require that you travel in reverse for them to adjust. They can adjust themselves going forward or backward. Keep in mind that even self-adjusting brakes require 1 initial adjustment. You could just install them and they would eventually adjust out but until that happens you would have weak brakes. Basically if the brake shoes have to move too far before they touch the drums a pulley spins the adjustment wheel which then takes and adjusts the...

  • Recommended Hub/Drum for Timbren 3,500 Lb Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System
  • The Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension is offered with a straight spindle using part # ASR35HDS01 and a 2" lift spindle using part # TASR35HDS06. They both use the same brake mounting flanges but the bearings are different. The straight spindles use a 25580 inner/LM67048 outer bearing and the lift spindles use a 25580 inner/15123 outer bearing. For a braking assembly on either spindle I recommend the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-7-SA which are self adjusting...

  • Replacement Hubs, Brake Assemblies, and Tire/Wheel Combination for Old Trailer With Dexter Axles
  • I have replacement hub, brake, and tire/wheel options to replace what you have on your Dexter axle. They will fit the spindle measurements that you sent me of: A is 3" B is 2.125" C is 1.75" D is 1.25" E is 1" The replacement hub and drum assembly that fits that spindle is the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 42866UC3. With this assembly you will need to purchase the grease seal # GS-2125DL which has the smaller I.D. of 2.125 inches. If you have E-Z Lube spindles on your...

  • Replacement Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies for Trailer with 7k Axles
  • Since you most likely have 7k axles the correct set of replacement assemblies would be the part # AKEBRK-7-SA which comes with a left and right hand assembly. Since we don't have specific fit info for your trailer though that's the best recommendation I can make.

  • Replacement 12 inch Brake Assemblies for Dexter 36-89 on Trailer

  • Which Magnet Fits etrailer 12x2 Electric Brakes for 5.2K to 7K Axles and Oil Bath Hub for 7K Axles
  • The magnet used in trailer brake assemblies # AKEBRK-7-SA is magnet # AKBRKR-M12 which you will see they have rated the same as the brake assemblies themselves. So since they are compatible with up to 7K axles you can say they are rated for 7,000 pound axles maximum. We have tow hub and drum assembly kits for 7K oil bath axles. First is # 8-219-9UC3-A and it comes with a 2-1/4 inch diameter seal. The other is # 8-219-9UC3 and it comes with a 2-1/8 inch diameter seal. The oil cap included...

  • Comparing The Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-7-SA To 7K Dexter Brake Assemblies # 23-465/23-464
  • The Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 5.2K to 7K # AKEBRK-7-SA are the equivalent of the Dexter 7K assemblies # 23-465 and # 23-464. They are actually a little nicer than the Dexter assemblies in my opinion because the brake shoe material is cut instead of scored and broken off so there is a cleaner line for less wear and tear at the edge of the material. They are absolutely compatible with the Trailer Hub & Drum Assembly - 7,000...

  • Brake Assembly Fit and Compatibility for 5200 lb Axle

The Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 5.2K to 7K # AKEBRK-7-SA are also a fit.

  • How to Find Replacement Trailer Hub Assembly for Dual Axle Trailer with 6 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern
  • To ensure you get the correct replacement hubs for your trailer, you will need to find either the bearing numbers on your existing hub assembly or you can measure the spindle if these cannot be found. The bearing numbers should be stamped onto the bearings themselves. I have attached an image that shows what numbers or dimensions are needed. When measuring the spindle, I recommend using a digital caliper like # PTW80157 to get the most accurate measurement possible. For example, the...

  • Are All Electric Trailer Brakes Self-Adjusting
  • Trailer brakes can be either self-adjusting like the Dexter # 23-468 or may require periodic manual adjustments like # 23-27, depending on the particular model assemblies you have installed on the trailer. An easy way to tell if you have self-adjusting units is to pull the hub/drum off the trailer spindle and check for an adjustable cable that would extend across the brake assembly (see attached picture). If this is present, then you have self-adjusting brake assemblies that will adjust...
