    • 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 brakes do not require periodic manual adjustment like standard brakes
    • Fine-tooth brake adjustment gears allow for a more precise setting
  • Dust shields protect from debris while you're towing
  • E-coated backing plates resist wear and corrosion
  • 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 (BRKH122510) sold separately

Self-Adjusting Brakes Don'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

These brake assemblies meet the requirements for certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The CSA creates standards, which when complied with ensure a safe and quality product. These brake assemblies underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. These brakes have 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 these brake assemblies 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.

E-trailer makes it very easy to order your brakes and trailer parts they have you in the computer you can go for a couple years and not buy anything and they can tell you with seconds what you bought last, makes it very easy would recommend them to anyone. As for quality of the brakes you get about a year on them I run 5 days a week $85,000 miles a year. If you don't run them as hard as I do with the weight I carry they could possibly last two or three years even more. Self adjusting works great, put them on you don't have to mess with them.


Good brakes. I’ve had them on my equipment trailer for a year. They seem to be holding up pretty good.


Delivered when promised , and extremely cheaper than I could have purchased locally, E-trailer has definitely acquired another customer


They look like they’re good brakes, but the magnets are absolutely garbage they barely work Super weak magnets


Product is fine and a fair price but packaging sucks. Box was big enough for 15 brake assy but I only ordered 4. They were beat up and thrown around inside the huge box. Don't you have a bow that fits the item


The brake assemblies are of excellent quality, fit and finish are very good, with the exception of the adjustment ports which do not align with the star wheel making for an award adjustment.
The assemblies, installed on a tandem axle trailer with 10K axles, perform well, but seem to be a little low on braking power, you can stop the trailer and tow unit using the trailer brakes but even unloaded will not lock. Considering how the performance improved with use a re-evaluation is warranted after being allowed to settle in.

I highly recommend this product.


Works great perfect fit. Fast shipping.


The only issue I have is with the packing of the order. The brake assemblies were not packaged very well at all. They were loose in one big box with a little bit of paper inside. They had bounced around enough that one of the magnets had come off the bracket. Luckily the little clip that secures the magnet was still in the box and I could put it back on.


Good part, but doesn't come with me bolts, which i found out is $50 dollars more,,, for bolts really


Completely satisfied with the products and I was kept up to date on the status of my order!
Thank you

  • Individual Assemblies that Come with Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-10
    Yes, the left and right hand assemblies of the kit part number # AKEBRK-10 are available as part numbers # AKEBRK-10R for the right hand side and part # AKEBRK-10L for the left hand side. The kit does not include anything beyond just the two assemblies so if you happen to catch our pricing algorithm offering them individually at a better price that's what I would recommend you go with!

  • Availability of Electric 6 Bolt Mount Brake Assemblies for 10K Axle
    Unfortunately, we don't offer any 6 bolt brake assemblies all the brake assemblies we offer for a 10K axle use a 5 or a 7 bolt mounting flange. According to Dexter, they discontinued those brake assemblies about 20 years ago. The good news is that spare parts are still available. To identify the correct parts, we'll need to know if you have the general or heavy duty brake assemblies. Just measure the existing brake shoes, if they're 3-3/8 inches wide they're general duty, if they're...

  • Where To Start for Adding Electric Brakes to a Trailer
    Sounds like you are trying to add trailer brakes to a trailer that currently does not have any installed. I attached a help article that will walk you through the entire process, but basically you will need to first determine what spindle you have on your trailer axles so that you can find the right hub/drum to fit the axles. Once you have that figured out you will be able to piece the rest of the parts needed from there. I also attached a picture that shows what info is needed to identify...

  • Replacement Trailer Brake Assemblies for Dexter 10K Axle
    The etrailer brand # AKEBRK-10R for the right side and # AKEBRK-10L for the left are the correct replacement 12-1/4 inch brake assemblies for a Dexter 10K axle with a 7-bolt brake mounting flange. I've linked to a product description video featuring the brake assemblies.

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies for Dexter 10k Trailer Axle
    Yes, for your Dexter 10k axles you can use the 10k brake assemblies part # AKEBRK-10R and # AKEBRK-10L that you mentioned. These were designed for your Dexter 10k axles and the slight narrower width would not be an issue at all.

  • Comparing Dexter and etrailer Brand Electric Trailer Brakes for 10K Axles
    We recently had a short training session in which the difference between our brakes such as # AKEBRK-10R and Dexter brakes were revealed. The biggest difference is the brake pad material. It is thicker on our house brand brakes. Also, on our brakes the pads are machine cut whereas on the Dexter brakes the sections are snapped off. The benefit to having them machine cut is a smoother edge. Snapping off the pad sections leads to chipped edges and fine cracks in the material. The performance...

  • Dimensions for the 7-Bolt Mounting Pattern on the Electric Trailer Brake # AKEBRK-10R
    Although we do not have a schematic for the 7 bolt mounting pattern, I do have the measurements for the patterns. The 7 bolt mounting patterns for both the Electric Trailer Brake with Dust Shield, Right # AKEBRK-10R and Left # AKEBRK-10L, varies between 2", 2-3/16", and 4" depending on what mounting hole locations you are looking at. I have provided a picture that shows the dimensions for you to reference.

  • Does Brake Assembly part # AKEBRK-10R Fit Dexter D100 Axles
    If your Dexter axles are 10k axles that require 12-1/4 inch by 3-3/8 inch assemblies the part # AKEBRK-10R would fit. Everything I am finding on the Dexter D100 axles is that they are 10k so these would be a fit. For the matching left side you'd want the part # AKEBRK-10L.

  • Replacement 12-1/4 Inch x 3-3/8 Inch Braking Assembly with Four Bolt Brake Mounting Flange
    If the braking assemblies you have now are indeed 12-1/4" x 3-3/8" and use a four bolt brake mounting flange then you are going to want to use the Electric Trailer Brake Kit w/ Dust Shields part # AKEBRK-8, not the Electric Trailer Brake Kit w/ Dust Shields part # AKEBRK-10. I have attached a photo which shows the correct way to measure your braking assembles for replacement. You will also need to verify that the bolt holes on your brake mounting flange are 3-7/16" apart on center from...

  • How To Manual Adjust My Electric Brakes
    When it comes to adjusting your electric brakes # AKEBRK-10 you will adjust them out until you hear a slight but constant drag of the pads on the drum. There are specialty brake adjustment tools that you can buy locally but if you have the right sized flathead screwdriver you will be ok. There is a star wheel inside the brake assembly, accessible through an opening at the lower, back side of the assemblies. There may or may not be a plug in the opening that you would have to take out first...

You will need to check the flange on your axles to make sure what bolt pattern you will need for a brake assembly.

  • Are there Specific Marine Grade 12-1/4 Inch Electric Brakes for a Boat Trailer?
    All of our electric brake manufacturers do a good job at sealing the wiring at the magnet so they can be used in marine applications but there are no electric brakes designed for boat trailers. This is likely due to a lack of marine grade material use on electric brakes (galvanized or stainless steel backing plates) The etrailer # AKEBRK-10R, you referenced, will work for your application if your drum is 12-1/4 by 3-3/8 inches, see attached diagram that shows you how to measure.

  • Replacement 12-1/4" x 3-3/8" Braking Assemblies for 10K Axle
    The Dexter 10K axles use 12-1/4" x 3-3/8" braking assemblies whereas the ALKO 10K axes use 12-1/4" x 3-1/2" braking assemblies. Therefore, it sounds like you have Dexter axles and need to use the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-10. I really wouldn't pay too much attention to the visuals differences of the assemblies because if the measurements match they will fit.

  • Trailer Brake Assemblies for Big Tex with 10k Brake Assemblies
    The correct electric drum brake assemblies for a trailer with 10k axles like yours would be the part # AKEBRK-10. In order to pick out the correct drum I would need more specific info from you though like what is the wheel bolt pattern and what is the brand and age of the axle.

  • Availability of 12-1/4 inch Brake Assembly with 4 Bolt Mounting Pattern
    For a 12-1/4 inch by 3-3/8 inch brake assembly that uses a 4 bolt mounting pattern we have the part # AKEBRK-8L. This would be what would work for you. There would be no way to attach a 7-bolt assembly to a mounting flange designed for a 4-bolt. This assembly has an 8k capacity which you would need to make sure your trailer has the same.

  • Replacement Electric Brakes for a 1991 Fleetwood Wilderness 5th Wheel Trailer
    I am fairly certain your 1991 Fleetwood Wilderness uses 10 x 2-1/4 inch brakes. But to be sure you can measure the inner diameter and depth of a drum. For a pair of brake in this size I recommend etrailer brakes # AKEBRK-35-SA which includes a left and right assembly. These are self-adjusting brakes that only require an initial adjustment at the time of installation. After that they will adjust themselves. I have linked a video featuring these brakes for you.

  • Trouble Removing Spindle Nut On Dexter 10K Axle
    Thank you for your purchase of the Electric Trailer Brake Kit w/ Dust Shields part # AKEBRK-10. In some cases, you can remove the spindle nut with a set of channel locks but in others you will need to use a socket and ratchet or even possible a breaker bar depending on how long the spindle nut has been on there. If you have access to a torch you can heat the nut up as that will help to remove it but otherwise you just need to use more force. For a new tang washer you can use part # 5-59.

  • Is the Electric Trailer Brake Kit for 10K Axles Sold As a Pair
    The Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-10 is sold as a pair, so one left and one right. This kit would be sufficient for one axle which is another way of looking at it. If you need new mounting hardware which I do recommend replacing we have this as well, the Mounting Bolts and Hardware for 12-1/4" Brake Assemblies part # BRKH122510 which is again for a pair, therefore one axle.

  • Can I Use Self Adjusting Brakes in Place of Manually Adjusting Brakes on my 5th Wheel
    Yes, you can replace your old manually adjusting brakes with a set of self adjusting brakes without any issues.

If you've got 10 inch drums and tandem/triple 3500-lbs axles then you'll want to use the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # AKEBRK-35-SA.
