Brake shoes refer to the drum brake. Wheels brake in the drum brake, meanwhile brake shoes press the rotating cylinder. Due to the mechanical friction, braking effect is achieved. In cars the parking brake can be the drum brake. It is independent of the operating brake and serves mainly to provide car standing. If the hand brake is on, brake shoes prevent vehicle rolling. Due to this it is possible to stop the car on the inclined surface.

Braking can be precisely measured on the brake test rig. It is easy to replace the shoes on the platform lift. Moreover, often it is necessary to dismantle wheel bearings.
