Automotive-Grade Friction Material

Each shoe 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.

As expected all good.


Axle seals and brake pads arrived on time and were a perfect fit on my 1965 Airstream trailer with a 2008 Henschen axle


Service was excellent, fast friendly and helpful. Product arrived sooner than expected and was just what I needed.


Always great parts that actually fit


Looks like top quality parts. Installed with no unusual problems


I am in the process of putting on the shoes. They look good and are fitting as they should. I will know more about them when I get the installation finished and get to put them to the test on the road. As of right now I would recommend the to other customers. I live in a somewhat rural area and parts of this nature are hard to find but thanks to the good people at etrailer they have been able to get me what I needed. Gave the driver a good review of your help and products and he was very impressed sure to get you some more advertising.

I am very well pleased with the way the parts are performing. Once again I want to thank you for your help in getting me the right parts. You all stand out as one of the top companies I have done business with. You go the extra mile to make sure the customer has the right parts and then follow up on it. You all are to be applauded for that. Not many companies like that any more. Once again a big THANK YOU and may God bless you all.


The brake shoes fit perfectly, were inexpensive, & were delivered fast and free. The only reason for the 4 star rating is I haven't used the trailer since installing to see how well the brakes hold up.



After a year Ive had no issues with the brake shoes. They are still working fine.


the brake shoes arrived quick and as described , we have a 1966 Airstream Safari in the UK which we now have brakes that work again

David N.


still working fine


Thanks for the help Eric! It arrived early which is a big help!


Use these on a 5th wheel RV. The shoes seem O.K., although I have seen some chunking of brake friction material. Pieces breaking off maybe the size of a nickel. Fairly easy to install but a little awkward to adjust with a brake spoon.


I received the brake shoes for my dexter axles and had no trouble installing them. They worked great as I took a trip from Missouri to Florida and Back with no issues.
They are well made and were an exact duplicate of the ones that came on the trailer.


Trailer brake shoes, rubber bumpers, and roof vents came in exactly as ordered. This was my 2nd order. Very satisfied. Thanks to your workers for helping us get parts through this crisis


I've ordered many items from eTrailer. Good products arrived promptly. Excellent technical support. Definitely one of my favorite online businesses. This order was for replacement brake shoes part number AKBRKR-S-12 for my 5TH wheel. I've installed several of these shoes before without any issues.


Finally got around to installing the new parts and they fit perfectly!! They also seem to work just as the Dr. ordered. They installed very easily, adjusted as they should and they stop the trailer when applied. What more could I ask for except that perhaps one of your guys come here and install them rather than me doing it !! Just kidding. As far as I can tell everything about them is right on the money. Thanks for the help and info regarding this purchase. Your help and advise regarding these parts for an older (read antique) trailer was very, very helpful in getting the correct parts for an easy install. Thanks again for all your help and advise and looking forward to the next time we do business. Everyone across the country should do business with your guys. You make it so easy.


These shoes appeared to be exactly like the original shoes on the dexter axle and backing plate. They look like nice shoes, installed fine and performed well on the test ride. Saved money over the Dexters and I'd order these again. Ordering process with etrailer was smooth and reliable as usual.


shoes are still working great. hauling a 10,000 lb skid steer


Great customer services very friendly and great to work with you on anything. Will call any time I need brakes or parts


The brake shoes are a great fit and a good replacement for my friends worn out shoes. The only thing I wish is that the shoes were sold by axle not each wheel. It is confusing.


Trailer brakes are working fine. Thank you etrailer for a good deal on a great product!


The whole experience was excellent. I installed new brake shoes and seals today. The parts were a perfect match. I ordered the parts during the Christmas rush and was told they should arrive within a week and half which was no problem to me. They arrived in less than 4 days and the job is done. Very professional. Thank you!


Got the shoes quickly and have them on, however three of the retainer springs were too long and had to use old springs. Otherwise happy.


I’m very happy with everything I purchased from etrailer. Everything was correct and fit perfectly. I’m very impressed with the service and their professionalism and knowledge of what they sell. I will definitely be ordering from them again.


XLNT communication and FAST shipping w/ tracking. I will always look for more stuff from this seller!



Everything is STILL working GREAT!!!


The brake shoes worked perfectly on my fifth wheel trailer.


Tthe Brake shoes were an exact fit. the only thing I would recommend is to buy the complete brake set ,way easier. I had all four wheels to do I replaced two complete and two wheels just the shoes for comparison.

  • Replacement Brake Shoes for 12 x 2 Brakes
    The replacement shoes for your 12" x 2" Lippert drum brakes are going to be the Replacement Shoe and Lining Kit for 12" Electric Brake Assembly part # AKBRKR-S-12. As long as you have manually adjusting and not self-adjusting brakes then these shoes will work well for you.You will need one kit per wheel. I have attached a review video of the lining kit for you as well.

  • Are Parts Included with AxleTek AKBRKR-S-12 Replacement Brake Shoe for 1 or 2 Wheels
    The # AKBRKR-S-12 Replacement Shoe and Lining includes 2 shoes with linings, 2 hold down springs and 2 hold down pins, enough for one brake assembly. For 2 brake assembles, you'd need 2 sets. I've linked you to a product description video.

  • When Should Trailer Brake Shoes be Replaced for 12" Brakes
    About 1/16" thickness remaining on your brakes shoes is a good time to replace your brake shoes with the Replacement Shoe and Lining Kit for 12" Manual-Adjust Brake Assembly # AKBRKR-S-12. It may be that you need to replace them before this thickness, it just depends how they feel to you; if you notice you are losing some performance and having more trouble stopping then that would certainly be an appropriate time to change them as well.

  • Recommended Brake Shoes for 12" Brake Assemblies
    What you're going to want is the Replacement Shoe and Lining Kit for 12" Manual-Adjust Brake Assembly # AKBRKR-S-12. These brake shoes will work with your 12" brakes, is compatible with 5,200 lbs to 7,000 lbs axles, and includes 2 brakes shoes, 2 hold down springs, and 2 hold down pins.

  • Does Lining of the Replacement Brake Shoe and Lining Kit AKBRKR-S-12 Go Around Entire Drum
    The replacement shoe and lining kit part # AKBRKR-S-12 has brake pad material/lining that will make a lot of contact with the drum but it does not go all the way around the drum. I'd say about 90 percent of the drum will make contact with the lining and these are not the short lining shoes that you mentioned. The linings/shoes you are thinking of are for free-backing brake assemblies.

  • Replacement Electric Brake Shoes for 2006 T@B Camper Trailer
    We do have some replacement brake shoes compatible with AL-KO brake assemblies. These are for the manually-adjusted brakes though so you'll want to keep that in mind: - 7" Electric Brake Assemblies # AKBRKR-S-7 - 10" Electric Brake Assemblies # AKBRKR-S-10 - 12" Electric Brake Assemblies # AKBRKR-S-12

  • Replacement Brake Shoes and Pads for Dexter 12" Brakes
    The Dexter 8-219 is actually a hub part number I believe, but it corresponds to 12" drums. That would mean that the Replacement Shoe and Lining Kit for 12" Manual-Adjust Brake Assembly - 5,200 lbs to 7,000 lbs # AKBRKR-S-12 would be the correct replacement brake shoe and pad for your 12" x 2" Dexter brakes rated for 5200-lbs to 7000-lbs axles. If you have a different size brake when you pull off the drums, just let me know and I can see which part might work better.

  • Replacement Shoes and Magnets for my 7,000 lb. 12x2 Brake Assemblies.

  • 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...

  • Trailer Brake Shoe Orientation
    Although the brake assemblies differentiate applications for the right and left side of the trailer, brake shoes do not. To replace the brake shoes on all four of your brake assemblies, you would need four sets of shoes. The # AKBRKR-S-12 brake shoe set you referenced fits Dexter, Fayette, and Foreman 12" X 2" Electric Brake assemblies.

  • Will the 12 Inch x 2 Inch Electric Trailer Brake Shoes # AKBRKR-S-12 Fit Old Dexter Brake Assembly
    The Dexter 12 inch x 2 inch Electric Trailer Brake Shoes, # AKBRKR-S-12, will fit all 12 inch x 2 inch Dexter electric brake assemblies. I spoke with my contact at Dexter and he said the only difference from older Dexter 12 x 2 brake assemblies was the bolt pattern for the mounting holes, but they use the same brake shoes as the current Dexter 12 x 2 brakes.

  • Replacement Brake Shoes For Dexter 5,200lb Axle With 12"x 2" Electric Brakes

Instead, you'll want to use the Replacement Shoe and Lining Kit for 12" Manual-Adjust Brake Assembly # AKBRKR-S-12.

  • Electric Trailer Jack Recommendation for a 2005 Keystone Sprinter Travel Trailer
    I have two different electric jack recommendations for your 2005 Keystone Sprinter and it all really depends on what you already have, and what you're looking for. If you're replacing an existing electric jack that's powered by an onboard battery I recommend the etrailer Electric Jack w/ Footplate # EJ-3520-BBX which is a simple, yet effective, jack that splices right in to your existing wiring. If you're adding an electric jack in place of a manual jack I recommend the Buyers Products...

  • How To Determine The Correct Replacement Axle For Homemade Mobile Home Axles
    When it comes to mobile home axles, your best bet is going to be a whole new axle, as you have already discovered replacement parts are scarce, and these axles typically have odd bearings in which you wouldn't be able to find the proper hubs for your brakes. I know it's not something what you are wanting to do, however if you are able to provide me with a couple measurements I'd be happy to find a replacement axle.
