About handbrake shoes

Handbrake shoes are found inside a rotating metal drum attached to your wheel. When you pull your handbrake lever up, the shoe is forced against the brake drum, creating friction and stopping your car from moving. A worn-down or damaged handbrake shoe can stop your handbrake from working as it should, so if you need a replacement you're in the right place.

How to tell if you need replacement handbrake shoes

You may know you need to replace handbrake shoes if your car’s handbrake is not working as usual, for example, if you need to yank hard for it to work. Handbrake shoes and handbrake cables are fundamental to our cars’ braking system, so if they’re not working correctly you run the risk of not being able to park your car securely.

Reasons for replacing handbrake shoes

They can suffer from corrosion, and handbrake cables can occasionally snap, leaving them unable to perform as they should. You should immediately replace your handbrake shoes at the first sign of damage to prevent putting yourself and your car in danger.
