  • 13 Inch Wheel

  • 14-1/2 Inch Wheel

Free-backing, driver's-side and passenger's-side drum brakes won't engage when you reverse, even if your actuator is activated. Automotive-grade friction pads and e-coated backing plates are long-lasting. Fit 13" to 15" wheels.


Features:

  • Hydraulic drum brake assemblies are designed for use with a surge-type trailer brake actuator
  • 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
  • E-coated backing plates resist wear and corrosion
  • 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 (BRKH10B) 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.

Excellent product for the money! Parts and pieces were exactly as described and the quality of everything was exceptional through the installation process. Let's hope that continues through the use and life of the product. Shipping times and customer service were also top notch! Thanks etrailer! 677919

Delivered in a timely manner. one shoe had slight damage but not bad enough to complain about. Have heavy boat that I bought used 4 years ago and trailer brakes had never worked. These bolted on easily, made slight adjustments and trailer brakes now work perfectly. Should have done this a long time ago. Very happy, will order from etrailer again if needing brake parts. 639864

Purchased a master cylinder and these free backing brakes to replace the water damaged parts on my 25 year old boat trailer. Even though my original parts were no longer available, the personnel at etrailer helped me find the correct replacement parts. I was ready to make modifications if necessary, but to my surprise, everything was a drop in replacement! I wouldn't hesitate using etrailer again. 407738

The order arrived quickly and packaged well. Only problem was that the lower staked in studs couldn't be used. Not enough clearance to get the nuts on after assembly to axle plate. I just knocked the lower studs out and replaced them with the studs & nuts that were on the original assembly. New assemblies look well painted and the brake pads look good. These units were installed on a 1988 boat trailer; replacing the original brakes. I hope I get as much or more life from these brakes as I've gotten from the originals! 480508

I have had nothing but problems with the backing plates. I have adjusted them about every time I have taken my boat out. One time my boat trailer locked up both tires going down the road about 35 mph. good thing it wasn't any faster or I would have been in the ditch. I'm going to change back to the Manuel lockout brakes once I can get all new drums and brakes. 672443

These brakes are a perfect fit for my trailer and were very easy to install. The only drawback is that the 7/16-20 nuts that fit the mounting studs are not included, so if (as in my case) you're replacing bolts with a different thread pitch, you'll have to dig through your bolt jar, run to the hardware store, or order a mounting hardware kit. 377930

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!!!

Review from a similar etrailer FreeBack 10 Inch in Trailer Brakes


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

Review from a similar etrailer FreeBack 10 Inch in Trailer Brakes


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

Do you have a question about this Trailer Brake?


  • Comparing Different Hydraulic 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 # AKFBBRK-35 are 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 galvanized...

  • Replacement Bearings and Seal for #84 Squared Spindle
  • I'm not quite sure where you measured on your spindle because the F location on the attached photo should be the length of the spindle that inserts into your axle and it shouldn't have a diameter. With that being said, I think you have a #84 spindle like part # SP20484 which means the correct replacement bearing kit for you is part # BK2-100. I recommend you compare your spindle measurements with the attached image before going with this option though. If you are needing to replace both...

  • Drum Brake Replacement Assemblies for Use with Titan Actuator

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...

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...

  • Should Both Axles Have Brakes on a Tandem Axle Trailer

  • Free Backing Hydraulic Brakes for a 3,500 Lb. Axle
  • The Hydraulic Trailer Brake Kit part # AKUBRK-35 (part # AKUBRK-35R + part # AKUBRK-35L) does not have a free backing design. They have a single servo design which means you would need a reverse lockout on your trailer coupler in order to reverse the trailer. Instead, you will want to use the Hydraulic Trailer Brake Kit part # AKFBBRK-35 which does have a free backing design and will allow you to reverse without a reverse lockout.

If this is the case then I recommend getting 2 of the etrailer Kit # AKEBRK-35-SA for electric brakes or 2 of the etrailer Kit # AKFBBRK-35 for hydraulic brakes.

  • What Hydraulic Brakes, Hub/Drums, and Spindles are Needed for a 3,500 Lb Axle
  • In order to add or replace a spindle on a trailer axle I would need to know the shape of the axle (round/square) in addition to the diameter (1-1/2",1-3/4", 2" etc.) If you have a round 1-3/4" diameter axle then I recommend using the EZ Lube Spindle part # R20384EZ.

I have attached a helpful article about adding electric drum brakes to a trailer that you can...

  • Putting Brakes On A 16 Foot Flatbed Trailer That Did Not Come With Brakes.
  • A place to start is to make sure you have brake flanges like # 4-35. When a brake mounting flange is welded to an axle, it must be welded square and concentric. This usually requires a jig to hold both parts in position. A trailer shop should have the equipment and personnel to weld brake mounting flanges to your axle. With a 5 bolt pattern and since this trailer never had brakes before, it's very likely you have 2 - 3,500lb axles and the trailer capacity is 7,000lbs. Additionally, instead...
