etrailer by AxleTek Trailer Brakes - AKFBBRK-35-D

Marine-grade, free-backing hydraulic drum brakes won't engage in reverse, even if your actuator is activated. Automotive-grade friction pads are long-lasting. Dacromet-coated backing plates resist rust. Fit 13" to 15" wheels.


Features:

  • Marine-grade hydraulic drum brake assemblies are great for boat trailers
    • Designed for use with surge-type trailer brake actuators
  • Free-backing design lets you back up without engaging the trailer brakes, even if the actuator is activated
    • Fall-away brake shoes only anchor on drums when brakes are engaged as trailer is moving forward
  • Automotive-grade friction material is molded to brake shoes
    • Pads are fully bonded - not riveted - to shoes for long life and more braking torque
    • Less chance of cracking and crumbling that can lead to mechanical lockup, thanks to tapered edge and circular grinding
  • Periodic manual adjustment required
    • Fine-tooth brake adjustment gears allow for a more precise setting
  • Dacromet coating on backing plates offers superior corrosion resistance
    • Ideal for use on a boat or snowmobile trailer
    • Durable enough for saltwater applications
  • Stainless steel springs are durable and rustproof
  • Aluminum hydraulic cylinders resist rust
  • Single plunger design
  • Adjuster plugs (included) cover access holes to keep dirt and grime out of the assemblies and off of the shoes
  • Left-hand (driver's-side) brake assembly, right-hand (passenger's-side) brake assembly, and mounting bolts included
    • Nuts and lock washers sold separately
  • QAI and CSA certified


Specs:

  • Application: most standard hub-and-drum assemblies, including Dexter, Lippert (LCI), and AL-KO
  • Dimensions: 10" diameter x 2-1/4" wide
  • Mounting flange bolt pattern: 4 bolt
  • Wheel size: 13", 14", and 15"
  • Axle rating: 3,500 lbs
  • Limited 1-year warranty


Note: Because free-backing brakes are designed to eliminate nearly all friction between the brake shoes and the drum when you are driving in reverse, a trailer breakaway kit will not be effective should your trailer disconnect from your tow vehicle while you are backing up.


Free-Backing Brake Assembly

Free-backing brakes let your trailer move in reverse without the brakes being activated by your surge actuator. These brakes are needed if your actuator does not have a reverse lockout, which is a mechanism that ensures that the actuator does not activate when your rig moves in reverse.


Each of these free-backing hydraulic brake assemblies has a fall-away shoe, which provides full braking when your trailer is moving forward, but supplies only limited friction when the trailer is moving in reverse. During normal forward braking, the fall-away shoe expands to catch your brake drum. When driving in reverse, however, the fall-away shoe's extra spring will overcome the pressure from the brake cylinder. This keeps the leading edge from catching on the drum, so the shoe will not fully pivot into the drum. This exerts a smaller amount of friction, just enough to provide a minimal amount of braking when in reverse.


These trailer brake assemblies act as part of your trailer's hydraulic braking system. A hydraulic trailer brake actuator is required for these brakes to function.


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.

This review is for the Hydraulic Brake Kit - Uni-Servo - Free Backing - Dacromet - 10" - Left/Right Hand - 3,500 lbs - AKFBBRK-35-D. This worked perfectly on my 2008 Bear pontoon trailer with Axis branded 3,500 lb tandem axles and hydraulic surge brakes on one axle. It all went together smoothly without issue and after repacking the bearings and bleeding the system, the brakes now work again. A special thanks to Jameson for your time and recommendation on this kit, it was spot on! 352521

Just bought a jet boat project. Everything went great until I inspected the trailer. It turned out to be just as big a project as the boat. Never worked on a trailer before so I went online and found some videos and checked it out. After deciding I could do this I then searched for parts and decided to give etrailer a try. All parts came quickly and the trailer was done in 3 days.I live in Las Vegas and being summer it gets too hot to work outside in the afternoon or I would nave been done in 2 days. All the parts fit perfectly and I couldn't be happier. I would use them again without any hesitation. Thank You etrailer 519408

The loaded marine grade backing plates made my job super easy. The fit was perfect and went smooth. I would like to see new nuts supplied with the studded backing plate. My order was processed fast and I received it quickly. Packaging was great. 500824

Matched and replaced the OEM brakes on our boat trailer with no issues. The directions which came with them the brakes were not clear on which way to turn the "Brake Adjustment Star" for adjusting the contact of the brakes. The directions did not indicate rotation of the Adjustment Star being different from the left to right side brakes. This created some confusion due to the left side adjusted with no issue but cause the right side to be difficult until correction direction of rotation was determined. These brake work great and we are very pleased with all the other products we have purchased from etrailer.com 542275

Very, very prompt shipping! Customer svc rep very knowledgeable about hydraulic trailer brakes. Packaging ensured product arrived without damage. TWO NOTES: The brake line threads were not "well cut" on the right side wheel cylinder. To solved needed to "re-tap" the threads-- additional time required-- To make kit 'complete'--add 8 lock nuts to the package--will add about $0.80 to the kit and solve customers frustration of trying to find lock nuts with 5/8" across the flats. 11/16" across the flats will not work as too close to the welded axle on the mounting flange 385816

At first had a little problem with my credit card authorization. You all made sure that it went thru and notified me right away to let me know it would ship on time. Not only was the product shipped quickly, but was packaged well and fit perfectly. No problems what so ever. From someone that works in the service industry, you all are an example to others on how it should be done. From the website videos to the support to the front door, excellent job!!! Will order again!!! 526855

I recently ordered a master cylinder and two complete drum brake assemblies for my 1985 Mastercraft ski boat trailer. I received all of the items much quicker that I had expected. The master cylinder was pretty close to being an exact replacement for the 30+ year old assembly I had removed. The drum brake assemblies were exactly the same as the original units saving me a lot of time and money trying to find the parts I would have needed to rebuild the system. 402536

They arrived on time and fit perfect. That was great, thank you!!! The only problem I ran into was they didn't want to adjust very easily using the star adjuster. I had to mess with the adjusters a couple times in order to get correct shoe to drum contact. Maybe the shoes just need to wear in over time. All in all, I'm very pleased and would definitely buy them again... 377554

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Brakes
Do you have a question about this Trailer Brake?


  • Comparing Atwood, etrailer, and Demco Trailer Brakes for Boat Trailer
  • Essentially yes, all of them will work for your trailer assuming you have 3,500 pound axles and a 4 bolt mounting flange. However, there are some differences between the brake assemblies you mentioned. The Atwood # AT85735 a free-backing brakes, meaning they will not engage when reversing with your trailer. If your trailer has a reverse lockout on it then this feature is not necessary. They're coated with an e-coat used for corrosion resistance. The Demco brakes # 40716-15 are...

  • Drum Brake Replacement Assemblies for Use with Titan Actuator
  • Thanks for the photo and tape measure. That makes it fairly easy to help you get what you need. You need 3500 lb single servo brake assemblies. My recommendation is the Hydraulic Brake Kit - Dacromet - 10" - Left/Right Hand # AKFBBRK-35-D. The Dacromet is for increased corrosion resistance. You could alternatively use the Hydraulic Trailer Brake Kit # AKFBBRK-35 for a standard protection against corrosion or even upgrade to the Demco Galvanized set # 18788-87 for superior rust...

  • How to Determine Which Drum Brakes to Get
  • There are a few pieces of information that you will need to know when looking for replacement drum brakes. First of all you will need to know the weight capacity of your axle so you can choose drum brakes that will be able to safely stop your trailer. The brake mounting flange is another important thing to look at when looking for trailer brakes. The most common is a 4 bolt pattern, but there are 5 bolt patterns for trailers with a bigger weight capacity. You will also need to...

  • Recommended Replacement Brake Assemblies For Eagle Trailer Drum Brakes
  • We have a few product options to replace your brake assemblies. I recommend the Hydraulic Brake Kit - Uni-Servo - Free Backing - Dacromet - 10" - Left/Right Hand - 3,500 lbs # AKFBBRK-35-D. This will give you both assemblies for one axle. These are free-backing so you can back up with your trailer without engaging the trailer brakes. They are marine-grade and designed for boat trailers.

  • Good questions. The difference between free backing brakes like the # AKFBBRK-35-D and regular hydraulic drum brakes like # DMSB18794M-93M (referred to as duo or duel servo) is that the wheel brake cylinder has pistons on both sides of the regular/duo servo brakes instead of just the one side on the single servo free backing assemblies. The amount of braking doesn't change much between them, they just function differently yet under the same amount of hydraulic pressure. The duo servo...

  • Recommendation For Brakes And Drums For WT20GAB Boat Trailer
  • Based on the information you sent, it looks like your inner bearings are Item # L68149 and outer bearings are Item # L44649 which are common for 3,500 lb trailer axles. I did not see in part descriptions the bolt pattern of your wheels but the most common patterns are 5 on 4-1/2, 5 on 5-1/2, and 6 on 5-1/2. I will make recommendations for all based on these bearings sizes. I have attached an article on "how to measure bolt patterns" in case you need it. For a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern,...

My recommendation is to upgrade your entire assembly to the Hydraulic Brake Kit - Dacromet # AKFBBRK-35-D. This rust resistant coating will be on the backing plates, the springs are stainless steel, the cylinders are aluminum and they are designed for marine use.

  • Difference Between Single, Dual and Free Backing Servo Brake Assemblies
  • The biggest difference between the servo styles that you'll notice is between free backing plates and the others. The free-backing plates will allow your trailer to back up without having the brakes lock up. With surge brakes typically when you go to reverse the trailer it pressurizes the brake system which locks the wheels up. Free backing setups are designed to allow the pressure to build but not activate the shoes of the assembly so the trailer can back up. Some surge brake trailers...

Both sides are included and labeled. They're also self-adjusting so you only need to set the adjustment when you first install them and then leave them alone. You can measure the inner diameter of your drums to find if this fit or not. One of two bearing kits is likely what you need. You should...

  • Does My Trailer With Surge Coupler Have Brakes Or Need Wiring?
  • As you mentioned, the Titan 60 Surge Brake Actuating Coupler is mechanical. It has a lever inside that pushes up against the hitch ball to give you a fixed point that makes the lever move and compress. This compression in the master cylinder applies the hydraulic pressure you need much like a brake pedal.
