Description

Electric brake shoe suit 10″ and 12 ” Al-ko or Dexter Style

Electric brake shoes include both primary and secondary brake shoes for 10 inches or 12-inch backing plate.

Select the correct brake shoe from the drop-down menu and watch the corresponding image appear in the image box.

Install larger shoe towards the back of the trailer, smaller shoe towards the front of the caravan.

One axle uses two pairs of shoes.

The critical thing to look for when inspecting trailer and caravan shoes is the slot or hole in the top of the shoe.

So how do electric brake shoes work?

When viewing 10-inch shoes, you will notice they are different. It is possible to install caravan brakes shoes back to front.

One shoe is shorter than the other.

  • The longer shoe is called the primary brake-shoe, and it faces the rear of the caravan.
  • The short shoe is called a secondary brake shoe and faces the front of the caravan.

The magnet, when energised will attach itself to the inside of the moving brake drum and remain connected during braking.

The attached magnet on the drum forces the brakes shoes during a forward motion causing deacceleration.

Tip: If your electric magnet and shoes need replacing, check the other components as they may also be showing signs of wear. Electric magnets need replacing when the wear holes are no longer visible.

A better solution is to buy an entire backing plate and bolt it onto the weld ring.
