    • 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 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 etrailer.com video instructions. I highly recommend this product

So far so good. I ordered a bunch of stuff from several sites th night I got my brake parts. Etrailer was the fastest order forfillment and the first on my porch by far. Everything fit like it was supposed to and this far seems to be working well. Can’t ask for more then that. If they sold a 11/16 ratchet wrench with these things would have gone lots faster.

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.

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!

Part shipped promptly. Installed and always had trouble with brakes adjusting to tight and making hub run really hot. Adjusted 3 times and would always tighten back up and run hot. Asked about warranty. Would have to ship back on my dime as rep said and etrailer would determine if part was bad. My question was how they determine part issue when is not installed as just looking at brake hub it looked ok. Just ordered a new Dexter no adjust brake hub and hoping for better results. Also found a equal part at local auto part store for same money and no shipping fee. Had I had know auto part store stocked brake hub I would and will buy from them. So if you have time shop around.....

etrailer found the parts I needed and shipped them super fast. The self adjusting brakes were easy to install and work great but didn't come with new wire connectors.


Comments
The brake assembly does not come with new butt connectors for installation. If you are replacing the brakes on a single axle trailer, I recommend the heat shrink butt connector kit # DW05745-5
Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector - 12-10 Gauge - Nylon Insulation - Yellow - Qty 5
$6.90
that includes 5 connectors. If you are replacing the brakes on a dual axle trailer, I recommend kit # DW05745-10
Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector - 12-10 Gauge - Nylon Insulation - Yellow - Qty 10
$12.16
that includes 10 butt connectors.

Great Service....Ordered on a Sunday evening and had the new brakes, drums and wheels, all back on, along with new seals and wheel bearings repacked by Thursday Afternoon. I have not adjusted the brakes yet because the weather turned bad today. With good weather, I will take the 5th Wheel for a test drive to check everything out. I will update this review at that time. Note: During the process, I found that I had a wiring problem(low voltage at the brake wires) which I fixed. Suggestion: Since you have to cut the wires to the Electromaget, just test the voltage at each wheel to insure that all is well.

Having had an almost disastrous episode returning home on the PA Turnpike where the bearings failed on one of the axles destroying the bearings, brake drum, and the entire brake assembly this will be replacing the non adjusting brake assembly that was installed on an emergency basis. I had ordered and installed a full set of these last year on all axles and they have been outstanding performers. Plus I don't have to worry about jacking up the trailer under that wheel, adjusting the brakes shoes, putting the thing back down, moving to the next wheel...

  • Is the Bolt Hole Pattern for a Brake Assembly the Same as the Wheel
    The 2-7/8" bolt pattern for the brake assemblies # AKEBRK-35R-SA and # AKEBRK-35L-SA as well as the 2-13/16" bolt pattern for the brake assemblies # 23-454 and # 23-455 has to do with where the mounting bolts are for the assemblies to the brake flange on your spindle (see attached photo). The bolt pattern for your wheels has to do with the bolt locations on the hub and drum assembly.

    You could try to adjust the brakes with the star brake adjuster, but it sounds like the brakes have not been used in a long time, so I would recommend to be safe and replace the brakes and magnets. Sometimes when a trailer will sit for a long time and the brakes are not used they can seize up from not being used and not operate properly.

  • Recommended 10 x 2-1/4-inch Self-Adjusting Electric Drum Trailer Brakes

These are rated for use on 3500-lb axles and use the same 4-bolt mounting pattern shown in your photo.(Thank you for including it.) These will work with your 15-inch wheels.

    The rounded part of the actuating arm on your brakes should be facing forward so that as the magnet is engaged it pulls on that arm to apply the brake shoes.

  • Easiest Way to Set Initial Adjustment of Self Adjusting Trailer Brakes
    Self adjusting brake assemblies actually don't technically require an initial adjustment. If you want to install them and then while traveling slowly in like a parking lot situation apply the manual override lever of your brake controller repeatedly it will tighten the assemblies to the proper tension with just doing that. With each application it adjusts the assemblies one click tighter till the proper tension is reached. The adjustment does not happen in reverse though. Only moving forward.

  • Brake Assembly Adjustment Won't Lock Wheels
    Your brakes shouldn't necessarily lock up at max boost output. The goal is not to lock the tires and cause the trailer tires to skid but rather to give strong breaking pressure to bring to a safe stop. It sounds like you have your brake assemblies # AKEBRK-35R-SA adjusted properly. You should just have a slight drag on your hub when you rotate your trailer wheel when it is off the ground. You shouldn't have too much drag or you will simply wear down your brake shoes prematurely.

    A bad ground can cause just one brake assembly to get hotter only as a result of the assembly with the bad ground not engaging, which in turn causes the assembly on the other side to do all the work (thus get hotter).
