Self-adjusting passenger's-side electric brake measures 12-1/4" x 5". Brake pads are made of durable friction material for improved braking and longevity. E-coated backing plate resists rust. Dust shield protects from debris.


Features:

  • Electric brakes are easier to install and offer more user control than hydraulic brakes
    • Requires only an electric brake controller (sold separately) - no actuator or hydraulic lines necessary
  • 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
  • Self-adjusting brake does not require periodic manual adjustment like standard brakes
    • Fine-tooth brake adjustment gear allows for a more precise setting
  • Dust shield protects from debris while you're towing
  • E-coated backing plate resists wear and corrosion
  • Adjuster plugs (included) cover access holes to keep dirt and grime out of the assembly and off of the shoes
  • Mounting bolts and hardware (BRKH122510) sold separately
  • QAI and CSA certified


Specs:

  • Application: most standard hub-and-drum assemblies, including Dexter and Lippert (LCI)
  • Configuration: right hand (passenger's side)
  • Dimensions: 12-1/4" diameter x 5" wide
  • Mounting flange bolt pattern: 7 bolt
  • Wheel size: 15" or larger
  • Axle rating: 12,000 lbs
  • Limited 1-year warranty


Self-Adjusting Brake Doesn't Require Routine Adjustment

Standard electric brake assemblies require manual adjustment of the brake shoes over time to provide longer-lasting and more efficient braking performance. With self-adjusting brakes, the brake shoes are always properly aligned, so there's no need to manually adjust the brakes after the initial adjustment. As a result, you get optimum performance without having to take the time to continually perform this type of maintenance.


Thoroughly Tested for Safety

This brake 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 brake assembly underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. This brake 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.


Automotive-Grade Friction Material

Each shoe on this brake assembly 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.

Five star in everything

Out of the four kits ordered, I received one brake kit where the corner of the brake shoe was broke off (1inch triangle) and the metal part was bent. I had to have the trailer moving so I just broke the corner off the shoe off and assembled it.

  • What Are the Dimensions of the 7 Bolt Brake Mounting Flange
    The 7 bolt brake mounting flange that the Electric Trailer Brake with Dust Shield part # AKEBRK-12R for right hand and part # AKEBRK-12L for left hand uses is an industry standard pattern so if you have a 9,000 lb to 15,000 lb axle then it will use this same 7 bolt brake mounting flange pattern so you don't really need to measure this. I have however attached a photo of theses measurements for you. I am not sure what depth dimension that you are looking for but if you can clarify this...

  • Comparison of Dexter Axle and Axle Technology 12,000 Pound Brake Assemblies
    Dexter Axle has the brand recognition so that will definitely weigh more in their favor. Axle Technology isn't as well known even though their parts are very common on trailers but they're mostly used buy trailer manufacturers. So their parts often come on trailers but aren't as commonly used when someone is buying replacement parts. The Axle Technology brakes, like # AKEBRK-12R for the right and # AKEBRK-12L for the left, are good quality brakes and some of our installers here even...

  • Dimensions of the 12K lectric Trailer Brake with Dust Shield?
    The 12,000 lbs etrailer Electric Trailer Brake with Dust Shield item # AKEBRK-12R you were looking at has an industry standard 7 bolt brake mounting flange pattern. This brake assembly measures 12-1/4" diameter x 5" wide. If your current 15k brakes match these dimensions then they will fit they just won't have the capacity or braking ability you currently have.

  • Can Electric Drum Brakes Be Used on a Boat Trailer
    You ask a very good question. In recent years we've seen more and more boat trailer manufacturers installing electric drum brakes on their trailers as OEM equipment. In the past boat trailers almost always had hydraulic drum or disc brakes as standard equipment since this avoided the natural concerns about combining electricity and water. The main reasons for this shift towards electric drum brakes are their lower cost and easier installation as compared to hydraulics, and that insulating...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer with One Hub That Locks Up Even with Low Power on Brake Controller
    On a trailer as large and heavy as a tandem-axle 40-footer you really do want all four hubs delivering braking force. Wheel bearing grease, or oil from an oil-bath type hub, can certainly damage drum brakes. Usually such leakage will cause reduction in braking power because the grease/oil reduces the pad-to-drum friction that provides the braking force. Grease- or oil-contaminated brake assemblies do need to be replaced; it is not really possible to clean them out properly if they actually...
