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.

Glad I found etrailer Fast shipping and Great price for these assemblies! I had to cut the originals off they were so corroded. So I would buy nuts and washers with these. The studs are 7/16x20.


We ordered the kit and received 3 left and only 1 right in the package. I emailed on a Sunday and immediately received a reply. I sent a picture of the parts and was shipped a replacement and received the correct part within 2 days! Great customer service!


Install easy, your videos are good

Brakes and new wheel bearings have worked out great!
Rick - 11/26/2021


Perfect. Affordable and OEM quality!


They will need bearings regreased. They were not shipped with anywhere near enough grease to make them last around the block. Which means you’ll have to carefully remove the rear seal or buy new ones to grease the inside bearing. And all the hub center caps would not fit and had to roll the edge with pliers a little to get them to tap into the hub.


Great product would never shop anywhere else. I never need to worry about this product failing. We went over the Rockies twice with our open car hauler.


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


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!


Product is fine but packaging was a joke. A very large box was used and only a small amount of kraft paper was used as cushioning. Six to eight of the brake assemblies could have been put in this box. Fortunately there was no damage to my assemblies. I thought that surely this would have been corrected given the number of people that have complained about it. I guess the complaints are not getting to the correct person with the authority to make a change.


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.


Quick delivery and installation was very easy - perfect replacement for the original equipment!


Installed a complete set of 4 of the E trailer self adjusting brakes on my 2002 Doolittle trailer with Dexter 3500 axles....the pre assembled units went on effortlessly, and worked perfect.....would highly recommend them....thanks


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 brake parts. I installed them on my travel trailer and the brakes work great!
David A - 08/20/2020


Got my electric breaks in and put them on my camper,( new parts should come with new hardware) easy online ordering and easy tracking, I will start ordering all my parts here.


Easy to install and the price is perfect. Don’t forget new backing nuts


Very happy with etrailer, great parts and service plus I saved a bunch of money. Highly recommended.
Instead of refurbishing nine year old drums, shoes ,etc. I made an easy change out for the price of a fancy dinner. Thanks et


Fast Delivery and product received as represented. Easy install and works great!! EXCELLENT PRICE !!!


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.


perfect fit for the tow dolly. Price was right too

still going strong after 3000+ miles
Jim - 03/09/2022


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.


Fits perfect - thanks for all the help with choosing the correct part. I was surprised there wasn't nuts and washers for the bolts. But am happy with the results.


Fantastic quality, 0 complaints!
and work perfect. Would absolutely recommend. I’ll be sure to use etrailer for my trailer and hauling needs.


Complete and easy to install


Perfect fit and easy install.


Emailed a question regarding which set up I would need for the drivers side became for my R-Pod 172. Quick response back with suggestion for the brake assembly. I purchased, received and installed.
Very happy! Works perfect! Great job!

  • Can Drums from a Trailer with 10 Inch Hydraulic Brakes be Re-Used When Converting to Electric Brakes
    With 10 inch brakes, you can re-use your old drums so long as they are in good condition, and not scored or cracked. You would use part # AKEBRK-35R for your right hand side brake assembly and part # AKEBRK-35L for your left hand side. You could also use Self Adjust brake assemblies that do not require brake adjustment as they automatically adjust to deliver proper braking force. They are part # AKEBRK-35R-SA for right hand side and part # AKEBRK-35L-SA for left hand. I have also included...

  • Replacement Electric Trailer Brakes for 1998 Coleman Fleetwood Sunridge Pop-Up Camper
    We can help you with new electric drum brakes for your Coleman pop-up! You will just want to confirm a few details in order to select suitable replacement brake assemblies. First, check the axle's weight rating. This should be on a plate or sticker on the axle itself. Note you need to select a matching set of left- and right-hand brakes.

  • Electric Brakes for 2007 Triton Trailer with 14 Inch Tires and 4-Bolt Brake Mounting Flanges
    Based on the tire size it would seem that you would need 10 x 2-1/4 inch brakes. They do mount with a 4 bolt pattern. If you are interested in self adjusting brakes you can use # AKEBRK-35R-SA for the right and # AKEBRK-35L-SA for the left. If you want manual adjust brakes you can use # AKEBRK-35R for the right and # AKEBRK-35L for the left. I have linked videos of both types for you.

  • Replacement Electric Trailer Brakes for a 12 Foot Enclosed Trailer with 3,500 Pound Axles
    To determine the correct replacement electric brakes you will need to first measure the drum. Measure the inside diameter and width where the pads from the brakes touch. If you get 10 inches by 2-1/4 inches AND the brake mounting flange has a 4 bolt pattern then assembly # AKEBRK-35R-SA for the right and # AKEBRK-35L-SA for the left will fit.

  • Do Self Adjusting Electric Brake Assemblies Need To Be Adjusted After Being Installed
    After installing the Dexter 10 Inch Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assemblies, part # 23-468, # 23-469, you will want to make an initial adjustment of the brakes and your brake controller. For safety, we usually suggest an initial adjustment to ensure the brakes are operating correctly, but if you do not make an initial adjustment the brakes will eventually adjust themselves as you use the brakes. After installing the brakes, you will want to use a brake adjustment tool to turn the adjustment...

  • Will Using Self Adjusting Brake Assembly Remedy Overheating Trailer Brake Assembly Issue
    What could possibly be happening is the brake might be engaged all the time due to a mis wiring in your system. To test for this problem, have a helper hit your brake pedal in the cab while you use a circuit tester on the brake magnet power wire. If you are getting power to the magnet any time other than when the brake pedal is pressed, then the brake magnet wire may be connected to a constant power source and would need to be reconnected to the electric brake wire, which is usually blue.

    In order to recommend some brake assemblies, I would need to know the axle capacity (2000, 3500, or 6000 lb) and the drum diameter. It appears that you were looking at the 10 inch self adjusting brake assembly for 3500 lb axles. If you indeed have the 10 inch drum with the 3500 lb axle, this brake assembly should work great for you.

  • Recommended Brakes For Tandem Utility Trailer With 3,500 Lb Axles
    When selecting new brakes for your trailer with 3,500 lb axles, one important thing to consider is the brake mounting flange. Since most 3,500 lb axles have a 4-bolt mounting flange I recommend the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly, part # AKEBRK-35R-SA for the right hand and part # AKEBRK-35L-SA for the left hand. You can verify the mounting flange by measuring the distance between the holes on your existing flange. For a 4-bolt you should measure 2-7/8 inches center-to-center.
