12-inch Off-Road Electric Backing Plate – Right incl Park Brake

Electric drum brakes are the most common brake type seen on caravans. In newer model caravans and campers, 12″ backing plates are among the most common.

Couplemate™ Off-Road Electric Backing Plates are designed to handle rough Australian conditions. Perfect for both Semi-Off Road caravans and fully Off-Road caravans.

TIP: Left side refers to the passenger’s side, whereas the right side is the driver’s side.

For tradespeople and manufacturers, Couplemate™ confirms these components are compliant with ADR 38.

Choosing between Standard or Dexter Backing Plates

Standard backing plates are known as “AL-KO” backing plates and are the most common style in Australia.

However, some manufacturers will use Dexter brake systems, or ” American-style” backing plates.

One way to identify this is through the park brake lever:

  • Horizontal Park Brake: Standard
  • Vertical Park Brake: Dexter USA

For information on choosing magnet-types, read our short article on the difference between Standard and Off-Road brakes.

12-Month Warranty

Couplemate™ backing plates are among the best, most reliable systems.
