How to Determine if Trailer Has Reverse Lock Out When Picking Out Brake Assemblies


I need new backing plates with shoes, but how can I tell, if my hydraulic actuator, has a reverse lock out?


Expert Reply:

Is there a solenoid screwed in to the back of the master cylinder on the trailer? Or is there a lever on the actuator that you move whenever you need to be able to back the trailer up? If so, then you have a reverse lock out.

I attached a link to a page that has all of the hydraulic assemblies we carry. If you need free-backing plates there is a filter on the page that you can select that will take you to a page that has all of the free-backing assemblies we carry.

You also will want to measure the diameter and width of the assemblies you currently have as well.
