Thoroughly Tested for Safety

This hub-and-drum 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 assembly underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. This assembly 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.

E-Z Lube-Compatible Assembly for Simple Lubrication

The grease cap on this hub-and-drum assembly is specially designed to work with your Dexter E-Z Lube axle to make lubricating bearings quick and easy. Just remove the plug on the grease cap, attach a grease gun to the zerk fitting on the end of the spindle, and inject the grease. It will flow easily to both inner and outer bearings. Not only does this make lubricating the bearings easy, but it also helps to prevent corrosion of the hub. This is because you can lubricate the bearings without the mess of taking apart the entire assembly.

Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.

Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: 8 on 6-1/2 means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)

Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: 5 on 4-1/2 means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)

Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance (D) from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Video Transcript for etrailer Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly Installation

Today on our trailer we're going to be taking a look at and installing the E-Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 3,500 Pound Easy Lube Axles with a 10 Inch Diameter, part number AKHD-545-35-EZ-K. Here's what this brake hub is going to look like once it's installed on the trailer. Something that's nice about this brake hub and drum is that it's a little bit more budget friendly than some of the other ones that are offered. This hub and drum assembly is going to give a housing for our bearings as they go over the spindle of the axle, but it's also going to give a good solid surface for the brake shoes that are inside here to press out against on to bring our trailer to a stop safely. This one's going to be a good choice for you because it's going to give you the stopping power and durability that you need, but it's also going to give you the easy access if you've got the easy lube axle. That way it's easier to maintain you bearings and axle and keep it all in good condition without having to take it apart all the time. The inside diameter of this brake drum is 10 inches, so it's going to fit your 10 inch brake assemblies. It's designed for 3,500 pound axles and this one's meant for use with the easy lube axles.

It comes with 1/2 inch zinc plated studs and 5 lug nuts to go with it. One of the most common questions that we get about this hub and drum assembly is what it's compatible with. It's going to be compatible with axles from most manufacturers like Dexter and AL-KO. These hub and drum assemblies are also compatible with both electric and hydraulic brakes. Now that we've gone over some features, let's show you how to install it. Here we've got our 10 inch drum assembly.

We'll be installing this over the spindle over our brake shoes. We'll need to get our bearings installed, so we'll need to pack those bearings since it comes with it so we can install them into the front and rear side of our assembly. We're going to use some of this red grease here. If you'd like to get some in order to pack your bearings with you can get that on our site, part number L10321. I'll take some grease, I'm just going to get it up into the palm of my hand with some protective gloves on just so I don't get it all over my hands. Then just begin to work it in.

What you want to see is it start to come through between those ball bearings in there. Once you've got grease coming up through between all of the ball bearings you want to go around and make sure that you've got grease spread onto the surface of all the exposed ball bearings. Now before we put our hub assembly onto our brake assembly we'll take the larger rear bearing and we'll need to put it in along with a little bit of extra grease. Then we'll take our grease seal that comes with it, and you want the open end here to be down. Get it set in place. Then you can take a seal driver and set it on the top.

Take a hammer and get it as even as possible. Now we'll take a little bit of a grease in order to prepare our spindle. Just want to make sure that you get it spread around nicely. Now we can take our drum assembly and slide it on. What we'll be doing now is checking to see the adjustment and the brakes. As we can see, it spins pretty freely. We want there to be a little bit of drag so that the brakes will grip nicely when they're applied, so we're going to adjust these a little bit. Now we'll come down here to our adjuster and we'll need to turn this dial right here. You'll going to have to figure out which way you need to turn it to tighten it. We'll turn that in order to tighten it up a little bit to begin creating some drag on our brakes. Then we'll test it again and then make any more adjustments needed. Now after making our adjustments you can see we've got some drag there, and that's exactly what we want. Now we'll begin to put our other bearing in and finish putting it together. Slide our outer bearing into place. Put our washer on. Thread on the nut. Then we'll need to tighten our nut so that it can be lined up with the hole for us to put our cotter pin through. Now we can install our cap that's good with these easy lube axles, because it's got this rubber plug that goes in the center of it. You want to line your cap up and then take a hammer. You want to tap it in until it's fully seated against the hub there. Now we can use a grease gun and begin filling that axle through that zurich 00:05:33. Once you see that grease just about filling up that cap take your rubber plug and put it in place. Now we'll reinstall our wheel and tire and secure it using the new lug nuts provided with the kit. Once you've got the lug nuts tightened up and the trailer back on the ground, you want to be sure to torque the lug nuts to the manufacturer's specification. That's going to complete our look at and installation of the E-Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 3,500 Pound Easy Lube Axles with a 10 Inch Diameter, part number AKHD-545-35-EZ-K.

It has been a year since the brakes were replaced and they are still working well. My only beef is a general trailer brake complaint, trying to adjust the shoes with the drum on is nearly impossible with a drop axle, the adjustment hole is right behind the upright for the axle. Installation was easy, equipment has held up well and was a good value. etrailer keeps providing excellent customer support. It is nice to deal with a company that has employees with great attitudes and who are knowledgeable about the products they sell. I'll be back when one of my other trailers needs repair. 720019

Hubs fit perfect and went on easily. My only suggestion would be not to pack everything in 2 boxes, it’s to heavy and I had dings on every hub and break assembly from being dropped due to the weight, should be packed in 4 boxes. 563020

The brake assembles I ordered, they only had one in stock, BUT JESSICIA FOUND ANOTHER CHOICE THAT WOUL WORK FOR ME AND GOT IT DELIVERED TO ME IN THREE DAYS. A job well done THANKS T.E.F. 629357

Replacing hubs and backing plates with brakes attached is a great way to go. Price and product quality was good. Bearings and seals installation was not difficult. Be sure to wear latex gloves when packing bearings with grease. Youtube has several instructional videos on packing bearings. Be sure to tighten the axle nut and back it off during hub installation several time to work the hub into place. 284690

Getting a decent replacement hub has been harder than need be. I've ordered hubs from 2 places and they were so inferior, out of round, mystery hole in side, and I threw them away rather than worry. I've ordered hubs directly from Alko and the bearings came loose in the box, leaving me wondering whether the bearing cage might have gotten bent bouncing around with the hub ... so I threw the bearings away. Etrailer's 3500 lb hub is good quality, and the bearings etc. were packed separately to reduce chance of damage. So "Yay" etrailer! Quality and care. 330728

OUTSTANDING price to value ratio. Perfect match for my 2005 Dorsey Dual Axel trailer for my boat. Great parts for the drum and brake kit and could not be happier with shipping time and speed. 646458

- AKHD-545-35-EZ-K

I purchased a boat and a trailer, which had inoperable one axle surge brakes. I decided to switch to electric brakes, and apply brakes to both axles. I purchased 4 self adjusting brake assemblies and the kit for converting to the 7 plug connector. All the components were of excellent quality. The brakes work great, and I am able to control the level of braking for towing, and for backing down the boat launch ramp. 444835

I had a breakdown in the middle of nowhere on our camper no one had parts and could not help me. I did limp the camper to the national forest where we planned to camp. I called etrailer and Susan H matched our hub over the phone sight unseen. She was able to ship it to a cabin rental place in the Rocky Mountains. Hub was the same brand as factory. She was a life saver and got our family back on the road in 3 days. 548743

Good product but missing parts. I got these a year ago to add brakes to my friends trailer for her. She just took it out of storage last month so I just installed them. It was my fault for not checking the contents right way. 448398

I ordered several items from etrailer.com recently while I was traveling and had issues with my camper. The items arrived when promised and seemed to be of good quality. Everything that I ordered worked properly but that is not the purpose of my review. I usually do not take time to review products that I have purchased, but this time I must describe my experience. The salesperson, Madison H., was absolutely outstanding!! She spent 30 minutes on phone with me helping choose the items that I needed. She was very understanding of my situation (away from home with a major mechanical problem) and very patient with me as I described everything that I need. Because of Madison, I will always look to etrailer.com first whenever I need anything for camper or utility trailer. She demonstrated some of the BEST customer service that I have ever experienced. Thank you very much Madison!! 273275

This is my second order. I ordered for the rear axle first. The parts looked good. So ordered for the other axle. The seals are robust and double seal design. But the bearing are China bearings. Would have liked to seen timkin or the like but are serviceable. The break kit fit well and looks good. We will see how they do on my 2500 mile round trip thru the mountains with a small truck loaded on it. The operators both times were very friendly and knowledgeable about their products. Keep up the good work and I'll keep buying! 388541

Put about 3000 miles with zero issues. They performed better than expected. I have ordered several items since then and the operators are all knowledgeable and all ways willing to do what they can to ensure a proper order and that Im satisfied with my order

I ordered the hub and idler set, my trailer came with 15x5 hubs and I ordered 15x4.5 rims. Since they wouldn't return my rims I ordered the correct hubs from etrailer. Got my box only had one seal slightly damaged. Installing was a breeze and happy with my purchase... Website was very user friendly as my first plan was to do a 6lug but I talked myself out of it. Thanks etrailer good job, nice company to deal with. 502161

Cannot get brakes to operate properly with new hub /drum and magnets! Very weak braking. Everything in spec .---voltage, grounds and amperage draw, brake shoes adjusted. Called tech but had no additional suggestions to get working properly. One magnet was damaged when arrived due to bad packaging. Heavy drum was laying on top of magnets and broke through and damaged clip. Everything did fit properly however. 568895

There are several things to check to ensure your trailer brakes are working at their optimum effectiveness. 1 With the brake controller gain turned all the way up and the manual brake switch on the controller activated, ideally youll want to see 10-1/2 volts at each brake magnet, 10 volts at the absolute minimum. 2 Ensure that the brakes are properly adjusted. If they are adjusted properly, you should feel a very slight lining drag when you spin the wheel by hand. 3 When new brakes and drums are installed, the brakes should be burnished in. This involves accelerating up to about 40 mph, then using the manual brake switch to slow the vehicle/trailer down to 20 mph. Once at 20 mph, release the manual override and travel about a mile to allow enough time for brakes to cool and repeat the process again. You will need to repeat this process 20 to 30 times. This allows the magnet surface and the armature surface of the brake drum to completely conform to each other. This also breaks in the surface of the brake shoes and will prevent them from glazing in the future.

Comes with drum, seal, bearings, lug nuts and a new spindle cap. The races are already pressed in the drum which is nice. Biggest complaint I have is the crappy Chinese made bearings. There are many other bearings out there with a much higher quality and I'd have liked the option to spend a couple more dollars for better bearings like Koyo, Timken, etc. 368796

Everything easy to assemble(save your nut sand washers from axle) hard part was taking off old rusty outdated parts from old brake assembly. Otherwise easy to replace and set up. Also replaces tires and set pressure to 65psi. 251990

I am upgrading my non brake Dexter ez lube axle hubs to these etrailer electric brake units and drums. The products arrived quickly and seem like as good or better than oem units i have had on other trailers in the past. The price point is great they fit perfectly. Could use a little longer lead on the brake wires. I actually bought the right and left assembly's separate because it was actually cheaper than the set price by a few bucks. 518570

- AKHD-545-35-EZ-K

Wonderful product took maybe a hour to put electric brakes on my enclosed trailer single axle after the install we go ok on a test drive had my break controller all the way up would not engage or slow down we did a little more adjustment was a little better finally took the ground wire from the electric break answer went right to the frame and that took care of it. Product works perfectly nice piece of mind. Thank you 246754

- AKHD-545-35-EZ-K

No issues with the install. Road tested well. Brake lines were challenging to connect due to the way the connection was recessed on the brake. I also purchased new drums and bearings. For someone who doesn't work on drum brakes often, the parts were easy to install. 382001

Very Happy with eTrailer! Order arrived even faster than normally possible. Fantastic system! Researched and ordered these rather than the Dexter that I had used before. They look Excellent, even directly compared to Dexter. It even came with the bearings installed and greased. Installing new brake assembly (ordered with this) and hub took much less than an hour including going back and forth to the garage to get the correct wrench. Very Satisfied! 747311

  • How To Determine Capacity of Trailer Axle for Picking Out Trailer Hub/Drum and Brake Assemblies
    The two part numbers you mentioned fit quite a few trailer axles out there but the key will be to verify that the trailer has 3,500 lb axles. If you can verify that your axles are 3,500 lb capacity then the hub/drums part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K and Dexter self-adjusting brake assemblies # 23-468-469 will be exactly what you will need. One pretty easy way to do this is to measure the diameter of the brake assemblies on your trailer currently. If they are 10 inch then that's a pretty solid indicator...

  • Should Both Axles Have Brakes on a Tandem Axle Trailer
    You would gain extra stopping assistance by adding brakes to your second axle on your tandem axle trailer. This will also help keep your original set of brakes from wearing down as quickly since wear and tear will be placed on the brakes for both axles instead of just one. I am not quite sure of the laws for trailer brakes on tandem axle trailers so it would be best to contact your local or state law enforcement to get the current list of requirements.

The concern is that your brushing and sanding efforts could potentially have scored the drum surface.

    We have just what you need. But I would need to know your lug bolt pattern to pick out the correct hubs. If you check out the attached link you will see all of the hubs we offer that would fit your axle that are also drums. Most likely you have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern and the part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K would be the correct hub.

  • Self Adjusting Brake Setup Recommendation for a Lippert 3,500 lb Trailer Axle
    You actually have a Lippert 3,500 lb axle which we definitely have hub drums available for. I searched the part numbers you gave to determine that. For a hub that will fit your spindle you would want the part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K which is a 10 inch hub drum that has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. Then for brake assemblies you would want the part # AKEBRK-35R-SA for the right hand side and part # AKEBRK-35L-SA both of these are self adjusting assemblies that would fit and work well for you.

  • Difference between etrailer.com Hub/Drums AKHD-545-35-K and AKHD-545-35-EZ-K
    You are correct. The only difference between the two hubs you mentioned # AKHD-545-35-K and # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K is the grease cap. The # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K has a rubber plug on the grease cap to allow for easy access to a zerk fitting on an EZ lube spindle whereas the # AKHD-545-35-K has a cap that does not have the plug.

  • Parts Needed to Add Electric Brakes to 3,500 EZ Lube Spindle Axle
    Since we know you have 3,500 lb EZ lube spindles we can easily pick you out the components needed to add electric brakes to your trailer. First you'd want a hub. For that the most common solution is the hub part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K. This fits 3,500 EZ lube spindles and has the very common 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern for wheel attachment. If instead you have a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern you'd want the part # AKHD-655-35-EZ-K. Then for brake assemblies you'd want the self adjusting assembly...

  • How To Tell If I Have An EZ Lube Axle
    If you look at the outermost part of the spindle on your axle there will be what is called a grease zerk or grease gun fitting. It will look like a tiny round ball which is where you can attach a grease gun to grease your spindle. If your spindle has a zerk on it then you have an E-Z lube spindle and you will want to use either the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K if you have drum brakes or the part # AKIHUB-545-35-EZ-K if you don't have brakes. The price difference...

  • Replacement Hubs and Brake Assemblies for 2006 Haulmark Thrifty Hauler
    Since we know you have a Dexter 3,500 lb axle on your trailer the Hub part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K is going to fit and work well for you. I would go ahead and replace all of the hub drums now unless you are on a super tight budget. Having everything new on the trailer will give you added peace of mind. The self adjusting brake assemblies part # 23-469 would be correct for the right hand side and then part # 23-468 for the left hand side would be correct as well. These components and the other...

  • AKHD-545-35-EZ-K Lug Nut Torque Specs
    When putting on wheels and the lug nuts, the specs don't have much to do about the hub other than the size of the size of the lug nut. Since the # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K fits 1/2 inch studs torque them according to the lug nut specification, on the attached picture.

  • Recommendation For Replacement Hubs For Dexter E-Z Lube Torsion Axle
    Thank you for the information but I need more details to help you because Dexter has several torsion axle options. To determine the right trailer hubs, you will need to know your axle capacity. The easiest way to find this out is to look for a plate/sticker somewhere on the axle that provides information like part numbers, lengths, axle capacity. If you can not find a label then find the size of your axle tube: Round with 1-3/4 inch diameter=2,000-lb axles, Round with 2-3/8 inch...

  • Electric Hub and Drum/Self-Adjusting Brakes Assemblies Needed for Lippert 3,500 lb Axles
    I do have a hub and drum/electric drum brake combination for you, but unfortunately the only pre-greased hubs that we have are idler hubs. I was able to verify with Lippert that the axle with the part V000378958 is a 3,500 lb axle. They were not able to verify the bearings and grease seal but typically a 3,500 lb axle will use an Innder Bearing # L68149, and Outer Bearing # L44649, andthe Grease Seal # 58846 that has a 1.719" ID and a 2.565" OD. If you can verify that this is the...

  • How Many of the etrailer.com Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly Are Needed for a Dual Axle Trailer
    The part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K comes with 1 trailer hub and drum assembly (along with the bearings, grease cap, and lug nuts for mounting a trailer wheel). So for your dual axle trailer you'll need to change the quantity to 4.

  • How to Determine GAWR of 2-1/2-Inch Square Axle By Using Bearing Numbers
    Trailer axles made from square tubing tend not to be weight-rated as consistently as round axles. In other words there is more potential variance in the weight rating of a square axle; two axles of the same dimensions could easily be rated differently. A 1-1/2-inch square axle could be rated for 1800-lbs, 2000-lbs or 2200-lbs. A 2-1/2-inch square axle could be rated for 3500-lbs or possibly more. You can get close to the axle rating if you know the bearings used in the hubs and/or the...

  • Comparing the E-Z Lube Hubs to the Standard Hub Assemblies for Trailer Axles
    The difference between the standard and EZ hubs is in the grease cap. For instance, the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K is the same hub, bearings, seal, and races as found in # AKHD-545-35-K but the grease cap is different. The grease cap is not only longer on the E-Z Lube Hubs but also has a rubber plug. The purpose of the length and the plug are to have enough room for and access to the grease zerk fitting integrated into E-Z lube axle spindles....

  • Recommended Replacement Hubs and Drums for AL-KO 8490 Hubs on Weekend Warrior Trailer
    Based on my research, it looks like your AL-KO 8490 hubs are designed for 3,500 pound axles, feature a 10 x 2-1/4 inch drum and have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. The etrailer.com Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K referenced in your question is very likely the correct replacement hub and drum for your trailer. In order to confirm this, I do recommend pulling your existing hub to see if it uses the # L68149 inner bearing and # L44649 outer bearing. This information should...

  • Locating Replacement Hubs for Triton 2 Place Snowmobile Trailer
    In order to find the correct replacement hubs for your Triton 2 Place Snowmobile Trailer, you will need to first determine a few things using your existing hubs or spindle. I first recommend pulling the hubs on your trailer to check for the numbers that should be stamped onto the inner and outer bearings. If you cannot locate the numbers or if they are illegible, you can also measure the spindle at various locations where the bearings sit. I recommend using a digital caliper like #...

  • Troubleshooting Noise Coming From Trailer Hub or Tire After Bump
    Since you hear a loud sound only after hitting a bump, it doesn't sound like a bearing issue or a hub issue. It sounds like a suspension or maybe even a tire issue. If it were a bearing, hub, spindle of brake issue, you would hear it at other times as well. The hanger wouldn't cause any noise as it is fixed in place, so you will need to consider the axle hardware where the springs meet the spring seat welded to the axle, the leaf springs, the equalizer, and even the tires.
