Handbrake shoes are the pads that press up against the brake drum when the handbrake lever is engaged to stop a vehicle. Cheap replacement handbrake shoes are available for any car or van at Car Parts 4 Less.
In a vehicle that has drum brakes as opposed to disc brakes, there are brake shoes located on the inside of the brake drum itself. When the handbrake is applied, the cable that is attached to the brake shoes is pulled and they are pressed up against the inner surface of the drum to stop the wheels from moving. The very nature of their job means that they are subjected to extreme friction every time they are used, so wear and tear is common in most vehicles. The problem is that this wear and tear is more serious than it would be in any other part of a vehicle. Faulty brakes make a faulty vehicle that is illegal and dangerous to drive, so it is vital that you keep on top of the condition of your brake shoes, handbrake cables and brake drums.
