Black-painted hydraulic drum brake assemblies let you reverse without actuating. Designed for use with hydraulic brake actuators that do not include reverse lockouts. Fit most 14", 14" and 15" wheels.


Features:

  • Hydraulic drum brake assemblies are designed for use with a surge-type trailer brake actuator
  • Free-backing design lets you reverse without trailer brakes being activated
    • Hydraulic pressure is contained by wheel cylinder
    • Brake shoe turns and releases pressure when reversing
  • Sleek black paint finish
  • Adjuster plugs (included) cover access holes to keep dirt and grime out of the assemblies and off of the shoes
  • Left-hand (driver's-side) brake assembly and right-hand (passenger's-side) brake assembly included
    • Mounting bolts and hardware sold separately


Specs:

  • Dimensions: 10" diameter x 2-1/4" wide
  • Pad lining: 44 sq in
  • Wheel size: 14" or 15"
  • Mounting flange bolt pattern: 4 bolt
  • Center hole diameter: 3"
  • Axle rating: up to 3,750 lbs
  • 1-Year warranty


The unique free-backing design, patented by DICO, lets your trailer move in reverse without actuating the brakes. When you begin backing up, the brake shoes are firm against the drum, as in a braking situation. As you continue in reverse, however, the shoes turn with the drum until the lining pressure is released and you are able to back up freely.


These brakes are designed to eliminate friction between the shoes and drum when you are driving in reverse. A trailer breakaway kit will not be effective should your trailer disconnect from your tow vehicle when backing up.

I was about to repair the old brakes when I discovered that the full assemblies were available at a reasonable cost. These dropped right into my 1999 Bayliner trailer, and in short order I had a full refresh of the system (along with a new surge hitch, reviewed separately).



by:

The trailer brakes worked out great. After an initial “hiccup” I received the correct parts and they went on smoothly and have performed great. Thank you for you assistance it really made the project work as intended.

i changed my tow trailer brakes from electric to hydraulic and they worked perfectly. they are much better than the electric ones and i dont have to worry about a controller. great product



by:

Product works as advertised. The hardest part was bleeding the system prior to use.



by:

Great value.
Nice upgrade for my older
boat trailer to avoid the hassle of locking out the brake actuator for backing.

Flawless first season on the road !

This product perfectly replaced my tongue master cylinder on my 1992 Capri boat trailer. It bolted right up and the brake line thread was the same. It was super easy. It is a huge improvement!



by:

received the backing plates one day ahead of schedule. Installing tomorrow.
Great service and a more than timely delivery. etrailer.com is top notch in customer service.
Looking forward to a smooth installation and hassle free backing up of my boat trailer.

Great value and quality parts. Fast shipping from etrailer!



by:

These folks are top notch to deal with! The customer service whether the order was placed online or on the phone is/was fantastic!



by:

The product fits perfectly on my VM trailer. The only issue was my brand new Craftsman 3/8 Flare wrench would not fit onto the bleeder nut. Fortunately, it is new right now and i can use any wrench to turn it. It will not be easy to bleed the line in the future once the part gets older and the nut will be tough to loosen.



by:

Great service the part fitted exactly shipping was right on time quality was great

  • How to Measure to Determine the Size Trailer Brakes Needed For Hydraulic Drum Replacement
    To determine the size of the brake assemblies you need you have to measure the depth and width of the hub drum on the axle like what you see in the picture I attached. The most common size is 2-1/4 inch wide like the # T4071600-500 that you referenced.

  • Wheel Cylinder Brake Line Fitting Size of Titan Hydraulic Brake Kit # T4071600-500
    The fitting size that the wheel cylinders of the Titan Hydraulic Brake Kit # T4071600-500 that you referenced are 3/16 inch sized which is standard size for trailer brake lines.

  • What Info Is Needed to See if Trailer Can be Converted to Disc Brakes
    You are on the right track for determining what disc brake components you'd need to convert your trailer to disc brakes. You'd either need to know the bearing numbers or the dimensions of the spindle where the bearings ride. If you check out the attached help articles you can see a guide we put together for adding disc brakes to a trailer like yours. There isn't a way to determine this based on the dimensions of your axle setup.

  • Is It Possible to Determine What Brake Assemblies a Trailer Would Need Without Taking Them Apart
    With the diameter of the drums and the amount of mounting bolts I can safely determine what assemblies you'd need. For example, the # T4071600-500 is the correct kit for you if your 4 bolt assemblies also are 10 inches in diameter.

    The four bolt mounting pattern of the two brake assembly sets part # T4071600-500 and # T187800-700 is the standard 4 on 2-7/8 inches square pattern that basically all current trailers with a 4 bolt flange use.

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies for Boat Trailer Hub with 6 Lug Bolt Pattern
    Based on what you mentioned it sounds like you are in need of a 12 inch brake assembly set like the etrailer set part # AKFBBRK-7-D. This is a hydraulic drum brake set that is free-backing which means that your surge brakes won't activate when reversing. This is a 7k axle set.

  • Trailer Brakes Compatible with 12x2 inch or 12-1/4x2-1/2 Inch Hubs
    We have a fit for 12x2 inch hubs or 12-1/4x2-1/2 inch hubs. The Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 12-1/4" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 7,200 lbs # 23-428-429 is the only fit we have for the larger hubs and it has a 4 bolt versus 5 bolt brake flange connection, but we have both electric or hydraulic options for the 12x2 inch hubs. I've linked the page to all those options.

  • StarCraft AR ONE Travel Trailer Replacement Brake Assemblies
    Our fitguide results for the 2017 Starcraft AR-ONE travel trailer's brake assembly replacements are pretty long and a bit redundant as there are several different models of your travel trailer but they all use the same assemblies. So what that ends up looking like is the same assemblies listed over and over. So the good news is I can help narrow down your best options pretty easily. The best option for replacement brake assemblies would be the etrailer part # AKEBRK-35-SA which is a set...

  • What Size Brakes Are Used on 5200-lbs Dexter Axles
    Typically a 5200-lbs axle will have 12" drums and brakes, so you're going to want to use something like the # AKEBRK-7-SA, which are a 12" electric brake assembly that are self adjusting so you won't have to worry about your brakes being out of adjustment again. You can measure the inside of the drums to confirm this, but 12" brakes are fairly standard on a 5200-lbs axle.

  • What Info is Needed to Pick Out Trailer Hub/Drums
    It comes down to the wheel bolt pattern you have and the axle capacity and that's all you need to know. For example our most popular option is a 3,500 lb hub/drum with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern like the part # 84546UC3.

  • Determining Correct Replacement Brake Assemblies For 2011 Forest River Prime Time Tracer 230 FBS
    Based on the weight of your 2011 Forest River Prime Time Tracer 230 FBS your trailer should have tandem 3500lb axles, which would mean your axles use replacement braking assemblies # 23-468-469. You will need two sets of these, one for each axle. You can confirm that this is the correct braking assemblies by measuring the inside of your drums or by checking the axle tag on the center of your axle to see if the axle rating is indeed 3500lbs. These brakes measure 10" x 2-1/4" so measuring...

  • Hydraulic Drum Brakes for 3,750 lb Axle For 15 Inch Wheels
    The Titan Hydraulic Brake Kit - Free Backing # T4071600-500 will fit so long as your drum is 10" diameter x 2-1/4" wide, and you have a 4-bolt brake mounting flange. This is a pretty common set up so it will likely fit but you'll want to make sure, and these brakes will also work with either a 14 inch or 15 inch wheel like you have. These brakes are for a 3,750 lb axle and would only require Mounting Hardware # BRKH10A. I have added a link to a video review for you to check out as well...

  • How to Choose the Right Brake Assemblies for my Trailer
    They are generally pretty universal. You want to check to see how many bolts there are on the brake flange, get overall diameter and the overall thickness of the shoes. For instance the very popular Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-35-SA is a left and right assembly that is 10" in diameter and has shoes 2-1/4" wide. These assemblies use the four bolt brake flange. I've included the installation video of them we made if you want to check it out. If you have a different size brake...

  • Replacement 10" Brake Assemblies For Skid Steer Trailer
    We do offer 10" brake assemblies like Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-35-SA but I would need to know a little more information about what you have to make a correct recommendation. First, I would need to know if you need electric or hydraulic brake assemblies. I would also need to know the axle weight rating on your trailer to choose the correct capacity. The last piece of information that is needed is the brake flange mounting pattern because some use 4 bolts and others use 5....

  • Can Brake Line System on Tandem Axle Cattle Hauler be Upgraded
    You should be able to bypass the current hydraulic setup on your cattle trailer to add newer brake lines but to be quite honest I'm not quite sure what you mean in regards to the steel bars. I recommend going with a brake line kit that uses flexible hose for your brake connections as that will help give you a longer lasting system. We have these available in kits with a steel main line like part # T4830000 or with the flexible hose all throughout like part # 18TA-BLKIT for you to check...

  • How to Find Correct Replacement Brakes for 3,750 lb Axle
    To determine the correct brake kit you'll need to measure the diameter of the brake pads (from one side of the assembly to the other). If it is 10" and you have hydraulic brakes then I recommend the Titan Free Backing Kit # T4071600-500, but if you have electric then you'll need brakes rated for 3,500 lbs like what we see with the kit # AKEBRK-35-SA. It's not unheard of for the brakes to be rated for a little less weight than the axles themselves so you'll be just fine with the 3,500 lb...

  • Determining Which Brakes Fit 10" x 2-1/2" Drums On Boat Trailer
    Based on the information you provided either the Titan Hydraulic Brake Kit - Free Backing - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,750 lbs # T4071600-500 or # T4423500-400 will fit your drums. The only difference between these two brakes is the # T4071600-500 are made of standard metal where the # T4423500-400 have a Galphorite coating giving it superior corrosion resistance. Since you are putting these brakes on a boat trailer I recommend the # T4423500-400 as they will be less likely...

  • How To Find Correct Trailer Braking Assemblies for Fleetwood Prowler 190CK
    The best way to find the correct braking assemblies for a trailer is to know the axle capacity which is almost always printed on the axle tag in the center of the beam. Once you have this you can then select the correct braking assemblies based on this, the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 2,000 lb part # AKEBRK-2 and Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 3,500 lb part # AKEBRK-35-SA are two likely options based on the weight of the trailer. I have attached our full list below.

  • Hub/Drum that Fits Titan Hydraulic Brake Kit part # T4071600-500
    Yes, we do sell hub/drums that are compatible with the Titan Hydraulic Brake Kit part # T4071600-500 that you referenced. The most common fit that would match the application of the brake kit mentioned would be the etrailer hub/drums part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K which fits 3,500 lb axles like what you have and has the correct 10 inch drum needed. This hub also has the most popular wheel bolt pattern for this axle of 5 on 4-1/2 inch. You can verify the fit of these hubs by pulling the hubs...

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies for Dexter 10,000 lb Trailer Axles
    How is the adjustment of the assemblies? Typically the problem you are having is due to the assemblies not being adjusted properly. Ideally they are tight enough that there's a light drag as you turn them by hand. To see how to manually adjust trailer brake assemblies check out the video I attached, fast-forward to the 4:35 mark of the video. Since we know you have 10k Dexter axles the correct brake assemblies are the part # 23-450-451 for if you have an electric brake setup or part...

  • Parts Needed to Add Electric Brakes to Trailer
    Thanks for the photo and it looks like you have an idler hub so before adding electric brakes you need to switch to a hub and drum assembly. To do this you need to know the weight rating of your axle, and also what bearings your current hub has. You will need to take apart your current hub assembly and look at the bearings themselves; wipe away the grease and you should be able to see the part number stamped directly on them. If you are unable to find them, you need to use a digital caliper...

  • Parts Needed To Add Brakes To A Second Axle
    Typically, as long as the brakes are on the front axle, you will be good to go. More of the weight will end up on the front half of a trailer, so this is why only one axle has brakes. However, it is never a bad thing to have brakes on both axles and it will only offer you more braking power. To choose the correct brakes and drums, you really do just need to confirm a few things. First will be the bearings. You will need to see if there are numbers on both the inner and outer bearings....
