I was going from memory, which is always dangerous
Nev-R-Adjust has come up in discussion here before, but
  • the one reference that I found in a quick forum search (in a for-sale listing) appears to be a retrofit when brake assemblies were replaced, and
  • a year and a half ago Escapes were apparently not being equipped this way:

On the other hand, even if self-adjusting is not standard, it's unfortunate that when buying replacement assemblies that one would need to pass up self-adjusting to get parking brakes.

Specifications change - for instance, EZ-Lube is now standard - so the question remains... what is the current spec?

Well if they are self adjusting then I've been wasting my time fine tuning mine

I like the idea of a parking brake for the obvious reason and also for security. If I added that feature to my trailer I'd make the handle as inconspicuous as possible and lock it. Let the potential thief find out the hard way that's just because he hacked the lock and hooked up the trailer's not going anywhere very easily

(I've probably used up my allotment of e-mails with ETI for the month, or I'd check right now )
3-20-15: I just got a response back from ETI regarding brakes.
They install the manual-adjustment brakes.
They do not offer options.
So, I guess I may add the parking brake option when it's time to re-do the brakes with new shoes. The assemblies are about $70 additional, per side, over and above the std. assemblies.
