    • Fine-tooth brake adjustment gear allows for a more precise setting
  • 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

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.

I just received the package and haven’t had time to install it yet. However, whomever created the packing process needs a different job. The brake assembly was dropped in a box, with some crumpled craft paper put on top. The box was delivered crushed and partly opened, and one brake shoe had come loose. This isn’t the first time this has happened. Placing a heavy object in a cardboard box is asking for damage (or loss). Please fix this.

Customer Service will contact you.

I am so glad I Purchased the entire brake assembly instead of individual parts. This brake assembly is better than the original since it is self adjusting and I’ll never have to adjust my brakes again. It was a snap to install thanks to video instructions. I highly recommend this product

Good quality parts. Replaced my old travel travel brakes and these are perfect.
David A - 08/20/2020


I bought for these brake assemblies. Installation was straight forward and after a year of use and about 3500 miles, they spray to be performing well. My only concern is one of the four occasionally sticks which heats up that wheel. Backing up a short distance seems to release it, but I'd like to feel more confident that it's working correctly.


Thank you for what you done. It fit and was easy to install. It works great. I have other trailers and I will use you to get brakes assembly for them. Thank You again.


The brake shoes had come apart, maybe because of bad packaging! I was able to reassemble them! I installed them on my 24 foot camper and sorta concerned because my stopping power isn’t close to what is was before!!!

Thank you for letting us know about the broken assemblies. Our customer service team should be reaching out to you in the near future.

I had a brake lock-up and was not even able to get the drum off. etrailer helped me get the right brake assembly and matching drum. The replacement was simple, and the added installation video were extremely helpful. eTrailer is my go-to source for parts and information.


Bought a Hayes 3500 lbs axle that sat in the dirt for years and the pads nearly fused to the hubs. Well worth the money for piece of mind. Only suggestion is to pick up the 7/16-20 bolts with your order (eTrailer, why not just add it to the kit?)

Made my trailer project much easier.

Thank you much!


Upgraded my old worn out brakes with these self adjusting units. They fit perfect and have been trouble free. Previous owner got carried away with the Easy Lub Hubs!!
I personally don't like them, as you don't know where the grease is going. I would rather do the lubing job the old fashion way. Not only do I know it's right, but I get to inspect all the brake components while at it.


ordered a wheel and 2 brake assemblies to repair my trailer.
they came in one box, not individually packaged. Banging around in the same box against a steel wheel can't be good for quality. may have internal damage. what were they thinking?

Sorry to hear this. Customer Service will reach out to you.

These complete replacement brakes are excellent quality, as a retired Heavy Equipment /Truck mechanic, I can rebuild anything,but it was nice to be able to bolt on parts that are of this quality and save several hours labor, while saving money over purchasing parts to rebuild my brakes. These brakes were perfect to finish off a suspension upgrade / overhaul.


Wrapping up a weekend with friends, three hours from home on a lone forest road.. Going through my 'preflight walkaround' I notice grease splayed from the hub cap of one of the wheels, long story short, both wheel bearings had failed, and the hub won't come off. Had to leave the trailer on a forest road till parts could be procured, I wasn't happy about this as I just added about 3k of electronics i.e. solar, inverter, dc-dc, etc.. I searched for the parts I needed and called etrailer to see if shipping could be expedited, Paula S was incredibly helpful and seemed to share my concern. My expectation was to have parts on Thursday, maybe Wednesday, but the etrailer tracking email said Tuesday! I was skeptical, but ok, ill start transfeering almost every tool in the garage to my truck for the rescue mission... I was ready when the UPS truck pulled up at 5pm, 8pm I was on site, wrapped up and had my baby back home by 2am. Couldn't be happier, you've earned a dedicated customer. And, thank you for using UPS for shipping, while other shipping companies are complaining of labor shortages amd delays they came through as advertised, couldn't believe it to be honest. Paula S, the etrailer team and UPS, thank you!


We use these brakes on a heavy loaded Interstate 7,000 lb.trailer, 16 foot, high top, walk in cargo trailer that has dual axles. The route is between southern Missouri, over the Rocky Mountains passes and over the Cascade Mountain Passes into the Pacifice northwest and back to Missouri...over 5,000 miles round trip. Towed by Dodge Dakota pickup truck, I REQUIRE brakes that are reliable, self adjusting, and function together in a consistent manner. These brakes replaced manual adjustment brakes of which enroute wear required multiple manual adjustments along the side of the road to safely cross high mountain passes. The difference between manual and self adjusting brakes and the consistent/straight stoping power of the self adjusting brakes is impossible to overstate. These self adjusting brakes were very easy to install, a mere bolt on job. I literally trust our lives to these brakes....and recommend them with great confidence with tens of thousands of miles of use.


I have been very happy with the function, safety and braking quality of my new trailer brakes


Fast shipping. Quality product. Install was a breeze. Will definitely buy from again. Thanks!


Very poor packaging of product had to request to have items replaced do you damage to all items


Ordered these On Fri. before Memorial day wkd., deliversd on tues. after holiday-exceptional speed on delivery. Thank you.


Ordered online and etrailer responded within minutes to let me know the part I ordered was not in stock, but they had another brand of the same part available, which I agreed and with paid 3-5 shipping received package in 2 business days. Installed the same night and all went well. Thanks etrailer for excellent customer service. Will definitely look to you first for additional needs for our trailers.


I bought 4 of these to update a 70s era trailer. They bolted right on, and seemed to work well enough. I used the trailer a couple of times for very short trips, but didn’t go very far for over a year. When I did, 3 out of 4 of them were adjusting into the drums very tightly and heating up. The self adjusting mechanisms were not working properly. I removed the wheels and examined thoroughly and they were all on the correct side and installed properly. I could get the brakes to tighten up significantly by spinning the wheel forward and activating the controller. I ended up discarding the self adjusters to make them work.


Great stuff and fantastic customer care. Etrailer walked me through the entire purchase and made it very easy for me. I will do business with etrailer in the future??
As you can see I was ready for replacement


These are very good. Working great for my 5th wheel. Easy install and work great.


I installed these brake assemblies on a 53 year old Shasta trailer and they replaced the originals perfectly! Thanks etrailer!


Fit was perfect. Very well put together.Good price!


Having problems with the manual adjustment brakes on my trailer I decided to try the self-adjusting brakes that etrailer offered. The price was right, and the delivery was excellent. I ordered on a Friday afternoon before a holiday on a Monday and received my order mid-afternoon on the following Wednesday...Great service. The brakes were very easy to mount. Also ordered extra bolts (which were not what I thought I needed...wrong size...may have been my fault on selection), nuts, lock washers, grease seal, etc. Everything packaged very well. Came UPS. Watch the video before mounting if you are not sure. May save you time. Etrailer has a great web site with all the information you will need. If not, call them (I did not call). If I need any other trailer parts I will be sure to order from Etrailer again. Great job Etrailer, and Thank You!!

Well, I cant really say much. I have not used the trailer since installing the brakes, etc. As trailers sometimes go, they may set not being used much as in my case. I still stand on the review I submitted on 07/12/2016. I am sure I will be using the trailer soon and sure the brakes will work great. Thanks again etrailer!!!
