Parking Brake Cables

We carry a wide selection of parking brake cables that work with aftermarket brake kits. Some big brake kits require extended parking brake cables for proper use.

 

What is a parking brake cable?

In most vehicles, the parking brake or emergency brake (aka hand brake or e-brake), is a mechanism used to keep the vehicle securely motionless when parked.  Parking brakes often consist of a cable connected to two of the wheel brakes. The cable is then connected to a pulling mechanism, either manual or electronic.

 

Is it safe to drive with bad parking brake cables?

We do not recommend it. Your parking brake or emergency brake is a safety feature and if it does not work properly, the vehicle may be considered unsafe to operate or park.  A faulty parking brake will cause the vehicle to fail a safety inspection in some states.
