dont go Chinese mate. my diff man said they are all rubbish compared to the arb and eaton.
yep they may have the same part numbers but thats where it stops. shit metal. shit machining. shit assembly!! and as they are so badly assembled they take longer to install.
i bought a p.o.s unit and it come with 4 1/2 spider pins instead of 1 full length pin and 2 halves. the center housing should of been press fit but the ports were close to a mm oversize. lee could only get two spiders to load at any one time!!!!

anyway thats my bitch manual locker is the way to go but as its a trailer truck what about auto as in Detroit or similar. dont rely like the lock rites on larger wagons, just look a bit under engineered that all.. but there is a few other decent brands around

contact tim on here he did me a real decent price a couple of year back.. actually he may of supplied a couple plus over the years....

My answer to get around lack of hand brake problem

Electric brake solanoids fitted to front and rear systems. Works great

Hi, do they stay locked even with the power off after they have been activated, do they then release when you put your foot on the brake like the manual ones do.
Cheers

They are fully electric. Ive got mine wired directly to the main power supply buzz bar with its own fuse.

This is my switch with its own led warning light and i have to turn the switch to release the brakes.



Got them off low range in the states off hand around $250.00nzd landed.
Awesome little units that as long as the units arent faulty will hold psi until released. A lot of the drag racing lock off valves release after only very short periods and will not hold full psi even after activated.

Great way of achieving park brake and with one unit on both lines hold better than any manufacture set up
As they garb with the calapers not a intrenal shoe drum set up that is normally covered in clay and crap.

I did it to remove the whole vx80 b.s. set up that doesnt hold even on a road going vehicle let alone a hard core dedicated bush truck

off topic a bit, but they look like trailer brake solenoids that you fit as an electric reverse lever thing.. about $80 from bnt from memory, I run one in the buggy as my handbrake. Might save the US freight
Dont follow me. i'll get stuck and need a tow..

Just got a price from BNT, $102 incl GST, just a bare unit.
Might get a few of the LowRange ones in my shipment, including the fitting adapters, getting some manual ones as well so don't require power to keep them on.
Cheers
