Gives you full control of your vehicle’s parking brake at the touch of a button.
The Carobrake is a device that makes a manual parking brake into an automatic parking brake via an actuator pulling on the parking brake wire.
Carobrake comes in two versions, the 1600N and the 2200N. The number indicates how much force or tension in Newtons that the Carobrake is able to put on the wire. For example, the Carobrake 2200N, equipped with the more powerful actuator, pulls the parking brake wire with a force of 2200N.
Choosing the correct Carobrake for your application is very simple: If your parking brake wire needs a tension of 0-1600N use the Carobrake 1600N. And if the required tension is between 1601-2200N use the Carobrake 2200N.
Both models can be mounted under the vehicle and connected to the original parking brake wire.
We have both universal mounting brackets and vehicle specific mounting brackets for the Carobrake series. The latter is made for a specific vehicle type in combination with a specific Carobrake model.
Carobrake tensions the vehicle’s original parking brake cable with a force up to 1600 Newtons or 2200 Newtons depending on the model. Note that performance deteriorates if the product’s cable is installed bent. Carobrake replaces the function of the handbrake lever and should not be used in combination with it. The actuator itself can be fitted in or under the vehicle, depending on the prevailing circumstances.
Carobrake has been tested and approved for handling 30,000 cycles with a 5-minute rest between each cycle.
Ensure the force is sufficient for the intended type of vehicle, fitting and use before installation
