Review of Kodiak Accessories and Parts 18SI-BLKIT


Today we're going to take a look at the Kodiak 18 foot single axle hydraulic brake line kit. Now these brake hoses and the fittings will let you run a brake fluid from your surge brake actuator to your trailer brakes. This kit here is designed for use on single axle trailers with drum or disk brakes. Has a flexible design makes the hoses perfect for use with foldaway trailer tongues, disk brakes and torsion axles. Now these rubber hoses do meet the DOT, which is the Department of Transportation and the SAE standards and are easier to install than ridged steel lines. The kit includes everything shown here on the table. One 18 foot long flexible brake line, one 7 foot long flexible brake line, one 1 1/2 foot long flexible brake line, one T fitting and 15 of the half inch loom clamps.

Now on the end here the brass nail swivel flair nut fitting here on the ends of each hose have nice deep threads to them. The deep threads will improve the connection to help prevent any leaks. The swivel allows the flair fittings to turn without the hose twisting. If you notice the flairs on the hose itself, they're stainless steel flairs, this'll help resist corrosion. They're stronger than brass to reduce any splitting.

If you notice when you push this in to tightened it down it gives you this open area right here on the flair fittings. This allows you to let you use a line wrench for better grip. This will minimize the risk of stripping the threads. Right here you'll notice they use a double crimped brass ferrel, which will secure the clamp fittings to the hose. The fittings are these brass fittings right here. This is a corrosion resistant fitting, connects your hydraulic lines.

If you notice the three ports on it, each one are female inverted flairs on each port. The loom clamps, they're heavy duty loom clamps that'll secure these hoses to your trailers frame. Few specs on this kit, the hose is the inner diameter on the hose is 1/8 on an inch. The fittings size is 3/16 of an inch and the thread size is 3/8 inch by 24. But that should do it for the review on the Kodiak 18 foot single axle hydraulic brake line kit..
