Hello,
i recently picked up a M101A2 trailer and the break away parking break tab has rusted away and fell off in my hands the other day. Where can i acquire a replacement for this?

Thank you

I have that part. The part I’m looking for is the piece that the teeth of that part gets stuck on to keep the brakes engaged. It’s a metal tab that is welded to the trailer.

According to the schematic it’s not available.

I would call Croft.
They have excellent customer service and they will be able to tell you if that part is available separately, etc.

The whole liability thing most likely.
Especially since it’s a brake system part.
Who knows.

Post a pic if you can for future reference.

Appreciate the update.

There are many other parts of the braking system that they do sell. This thin piece of steel rust and could fatigue over time. I’ll have to figure out how to post pics.

I know about the other parts they sell......it just has me wondering why “that” part is so controlled, for lack of a better word and not listed and sold.

Luckily both of mine are like new.

Dexter and Redline also carry them.
Any decent trailer shop will have them in stock.
Very common as mentioned.
$22 part here in OKC.

Recommend replacing both at same time.
