Park Brake Handle suits Boat Trailers
Park Brake handle or lever for a boat trailer applies a braking force to a disc rotor, on a draw bar-type boat-trailer.
This park brake lever is also an emergency parking brake.
Suits drawbars with the following widths.
The galvanised marine park brake lever or hand brake is positioned over a drawbar to engage a cable connecting the brake callipers.
During braking, the override coupling activates the parking brake, which in turn pulls the brake callipers.
- Position the drawbar handle against the override bumper on the back of the override brake assembly.
- Mark the hole position to create a pin location and drill through the middle of your drawbar. Affix the marine brake handle with a suitable bolt.
- Locate the pivot bolt in the middle of the chassis rail
- Connect the park brake cable from the disc brake on the bottom arm to the galvanised marine brake handle.
