Using Brake Adjustment Tool on Drop Axle  


Question about brake adjustment spoon tool you sell. Will this tool work on drop axles. The axle is hard to get to compared standard axle. Thanks


Expert Reply:

The # W80630 brake adjustment tool we offer is two sided. One side has a 90 degree bend in it that makes accessing the brake adjuster on a drop spindle much easier. The # W80630 tool will work just fine for you.

Is the W80630 tool recommended by the brake manufacturer's for use on their brake assemblies with a drop axle? Does have a video showing an adjustment with a drop axle? I've got a Lippert axle with Lippert brake assemblies. There's got to be a better way than the W80630 tool.

The Brake Adjustment Tool # W80630 is indeed the best option we have, even for drop axles - because of its 90 degree bend mentioned above. You could use something similar that has a sharp bend to reach the star wheel but I unfortunately don't have a completely different solution.
