Knott has developed and Type Approved a Trailer Brake that automatically adjusts, ensuring that the Brakes are always at their optimal setting.
The Knott patented automatic adjusting control system offer consistent and smooth braking action every time
All shoes wear equally and consistently: braking is smooth, therefore there is less wear and tear on the towing vehicle and trailer leading to stress on the coupling overrun damper.
Likewise, with reversing, poorly adjusted brakes can become a problem, trailers can be shunted and linkages and overrun couplings damaged. With braking performance assured, reversing will become trouble free as the automatic adjustment system simply disengages
No need to manually adjust the shoe lining; adjustment happens automatically and instantaneously compensates for for brake shoe lining wear.
Trailer inspection and servicing consequently much quicker, checking for lining wear (are replacements required?) but no need to adjust.
For hire vehicles, this should increase the service interval and braking performance is not compromised during a reasonable hire period.
Should the vehicle and trailer combination ever be the subject of an off road check, the brakes will be properly adjusted and the handbrake working etc.
Available as a retrofit kit on Knott 200 x 50 brakes and it's easily installed.
Tested and approved to 71/320/EEC and UNECE R13 on the current Approval
All mounting dimensions (200x50) are identical to the current model
