Video Transcript for SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Seasucker Monkey Bar vacuum cup roof rack system. It's available in a folding application, part number 298-SX6100. You can also get it in a fixed application, with part number 298-SX6000. The Seasucker Monkey Bars are perfect for vehicles that don't have a roof rack fit, or any vehicles where you want to easily be able to remove your roof rack system.You can carry all of the same gear as a standard roof rack system. Here we've got a surf board, and a road bike, but you can carry kayaks, skis, snowboards, cargo boxes, and much more. It has a round bar design, with an inch and a quarter diameter.

It'll work with any accessories that'll accept round bars. Each vacuum cup has a 210 pound pull strength, so as you can see, we're shaking the whole vehicle and it's not budging.You can mount them anywhere on your roof, just as long as you avoid seams, chips, or raised edges. You can even mount it to glass, like on your sunroof, or rear hatch. It has a 150 pound weight capacity. That's the same whether you have the folding or the fixed version.

You will want to be sure to check with your vehicle's owner's manual to see if your roof can support that much weight.The round bars are 48 inches long. However, the vacuum cups are adjustable along the round bar, so you can customize it to your vehicle's roof. Now on long trips, you want to periodically check your vacuum cups, should one of the orange bands reappear, no problem, simply depress the pump cylinder until it disappears, and you're all set to go again.Another great feature is, of course it's not permanent, so when you're all done you can easily take it off. Simply depress on one of the raised sides of the vacuum cup, and it comes right off. And if you have the folding version, it easily breaks down, so you can store it in your trunk, or rear hatch.

Most other roof rack systems are custom fit. Since this one's universal, you can use it on multiple vehicles.And if you're using it on more than one vehicle, it may be a less expensive option than to pick up two roof rack systems. The bars sit about 4-3/4 of an inch up from the vacuum cups, so you can even use them on vehicles with raised side rails. Now that we've gone over the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get them installed.The first thing we need to do, is make sure that roof of our vehicle is clean of any dirt or debris. So we're just using some cleaner, and we'll get it nice and clean.

Now we'll take our front crossbar, it's going to be the one with the double cups. We'll fold it out, push it together, and set it in place. Now you want to be sure you don't rest your vacuum cups on any seams or any paint chips.So what I'm going to do here, is I'm going to adjust mine in, on both sides, so that we have even bar overhang. Now we can take an Alan tool and tighten it up. Now, before we secure our vacuum cups, we'll need to moisten the bottom of them. So I'm just going to take a little bit of water, and do the same on the other side. Once we have it positioned where we want, I'm going to apply a little bit of down pressure, and I'm going to begin depressing the pump cylinder until the orange band disappears.Once this one's done, we can move onto the next one. And then we can repeat the same process on the other side. I've gone ahead and installed the rear crossbar. It installs the same way, just one less vacuum cup. You want to be sure and position it, how it's going to work out best with your accessories.And that's going to complete our look at the Seasucker Monkey Bar vacuum cup roof rack system.

2018 Chevrolet Volt

I bought a new 2018 Chevy Volt and thought I would get Yakima racks since I surf a lot. Well the Yakima racks are not rated for surfboards. Image that! Well I was pretty despondent after finding out the racks would not be suitable for surfboards. So I started searching and found a guy recommending the Seasuckers on a Volt forum. After exhaustive research to become comfortable with suction cup roof racks I decided to pull the trigger. Etrailer offered the best price with free shipping and no sales tax. It turned out they have excellent customer service with real people to answer questions, Brittany was terrific. I received the items 3 days after ordering and they are worth every penny. Quality product with incredible flexibility to fit any vehicle and solid as any roof rack system I have ever owned. This elegant solution allows me to to install in 2 or 3 minutes and remove in 30 seconds thus preserving the aerodynamics of my Volt when not surfing. Perfect to increase my mileage. Highly recommended, was the answer I needed. 526307

I didn’t want to drill any holes in the roof of my RV, so I epoxied some acrylic “landing pads” to the roof (which was too bumpy to suck onto directly). I then used the suction cups to mount this rack. I have driven all the way from Seattle to San Francisco thus far, and it has worked perfect. Every couple of days I still check the suction cups and pump them down a little bit, however it appears that the suction is holding quite well. 617137

Previously I had a Thule rack with posts that were supposed to be work with my car. They were expensive and never attached properly. These suction cup racks were easy to assemble and attach with very little effort. I took them out of the box in within 30 minutes I has my kayak tied on (only to the rack and not to the car) and drove it for awhile. It was all very easy. Note, as explained in the instructions they should hold for 4 hours. I did see that at 3 hours one vacuum gauge was slightly out, indicating some loss of suction. It was still on tight and its very easy to pump any cup back to full pressure. 617304

This product holds really well but it hums kind of loud .. For a $450 price tag it should not make that much noise sitting on top of your car 630852


Ask the Experts about this SeaSucker Roof Rack
Do you have a question about this Roof Rack?

  • Weight Capacity and Strength of Vacuum Cups on SeaSucker Monkey Bars
  • Seasucker has been around since 2005, getting their start by mounting accessories to boats with vacuum cups. It was 2009 that they started putting things on cars, like bike and kayak racks. The Monkey Bars themselves, parts # 298-SX6000 for the soild bar and # 298-SX6100 for the folding model, came out pretty recently in 2017. Both types of the Monkey Bars are rated for 150 pounds and each vacuum cup is rated for up to 210 pound of pull strength. They're tested their accessores on...

  • Roof Rack for 2017.5 Winnebago Travato on Ram ProMaster 3500 Chassis

  • SeaSucker Vacuum Cup Mounting Capacity, Function, and Fit
  • The SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack - Vacuum Cup Mount - Folding - 48" Long # 298-SX6100 does simply use the vacuum cups as the sole securing factor. Each vacuum cup is rated for 210 lbs pull strength, so this system is claiming 1,200 lbs of pull strength and they have been tested with cargo at highway speeds without issue. The strength is really incredible...I've attached a video to assist. For increased security and theft deterring, they recommend the window mounted cable anchor...

  • Adjustable Roof Rack for a 2017 Honda CR-V with Factory Flush Mounted Side Rails
  • Most of the traditional roof racks that fit your 2017 Honda CR-V flush side rails install in the fixed mounting points present on the rails. This means that those types of racks cannot be adjusted front to back. But there are other options that do allow you to adjust the bar spread. The most cost effective option is Rola roof rack # R4002. The other option is a SeaSucker Monkey Bar roof rack, # 298-SX6000, which uses vacuum cups to mount to the vehicle roof. I know what you might...

  • Roof Rack for a 2015 Kia Soul with a Panoramic Sunroof
  • I do have a solution for you, but unfortunately this roof rack will not fit your 2015 Kia Soul.I spoke with my contact at Rola who said that the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack # 59789 that you referenced is a low-clearance rack that doesn't fit with the design of the panoramic sunroof as the sunroof bubbles up a little bit so this roof rack will not fit your specific Kia Soul. Out of the linked selection of roof rack options we have a round bar system from SeaSucker, part # 298-SX6000 or...

  • Best Way to Carry a Kayak on a 2018 Honda Ridgeline Using Crossbars and Bed Extender
  • I recommend the Yakima LongArm, part # Y01149-1150, for the hitch extender. This is a pretty new part offered from Yakima and they were here a few months ago showing it off to us. This thing is solid and it's versatile since it can be set at roof or bed height. I've linked a video from when our installers tested it out for you. Since you don't want a permanent roof rack take a look at the SeaSucker Monkey Bars. There's two models, part # 298-SX6000, which are standard round crossbars...

  • Roof Rack for 2018 Toyota Highlander LE to Mount Kayak Carrier
  • Your frustration is completely understandable, and while we have one solution that I consider unique, we do not carry any roof racks designed to fit in the recessed rails of the 2018 Toyota Highlander LE so you can carry your Thule Hullavator # TH898. Since you do not want a clamp-on rack the only other option is called a SeaSucker, which is part # 298-SX6000. This rack has round bars which are 1-1/4" diameter and uses vacuum cups to attach to your Highlander's roofs. Many people...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
  • The easiest to put on and take off roof rack for your 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is the SeaSucker Monkey Bars. They mount on the roof with vacuum cups so they're about as universal as you can get. I've linked a video of another SeaSucker on a VW bus so you can see just how strong the vacuum cups are. It's pretty impressive. The Monkey Bars come in two different styles; the straight bars, part # 298-SX6000, and the folding bars, part # 298-SX6100. I've also linked a review video...

  • Does your 2017 Winnebago Travato on a Ram ProMaster 3500 chassis already have a roof rack? If not Rhino Rack has an option that is a fit for this chassis which consists of Crossbars # RRVA180B-2, RLTP Legs for Factory Fixed Mounting Points # RRRLTPFD and RLTP Leg Adapters # RRVA-FK1-2. If the solar panel on your Winnie is in the middle of the rig and can potentially interfere with installing this roof rack another option to consider is the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack # 298-SX6000...

  • Roof Rack for a 2004 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab
  • The Thule Traverse Roof Rack with the square crossbars, # TH712200, Rapid Traverse Foot Pack, # TH480R and Fit Kit, # THKIT1064, will fit your 2004 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab as long as it has a bare roof. A bare roof will not have a factory roof rack or side rails. At this time there are no Thule roof rack fits for models with factory side rails. The Thule Traverse roof rack has a maximum weight capacity of 165 lbs. I strongly recommend checking your owners manual or with your local...

  • Roof Rack Needed for a 2015 Mini Cooper Hardtop Coupe w/ Hatchback
  • I do have a solution for you, but unfortunately your 53" Thule AeroBlade bars will only fit on Thule roof rack legs and there are no fits for your 2015 Mini Cooper. We do have some suction cup roof rack options like what you mentioned though. SeaSucker has created a powerful suction cup system (each cups has a pull strength of 210 lbs) and incoorperated their own roof rack using the suction cups. Part # 298-SX6000 and part # 298-SX6100 both use 48" round crossbars and have a 150 lb weight...

  • Roof Rack to Fit a 2018 Toyota Tacoma with Fixed Mounting Points
  • If you definitely want a Yakima roof rack then the clamp-style attachement is all that is available at this time. For their system I recommend CoreBar system using BaseLine towers # Y00146, fit kits # Y06145 and # Y06128, and then either the 50 inch, part # Y00421, or 60 inch, part # Y00422, crossbars. Since your 2018 Toyota Tacoma has the fixed mounting points there are Rhino-Rack systems that fit. I recommend the Vortex Aero bars, part # RRVA126B-2, with # RRRLT600 legs, and # RRQMFK08-2...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2017 Kia Sedona Without Factory Flush Mounted Side Rails
  • If your 2017 Kia Sedona does not feature the factory flush mounted rails that run front to back, your only option for a roof rack system is with the SeaSucker Roof Rack # 298-SX6000. This particular system uses unique vacuum cups that will attach directly to the roof, so flush mounted side rails are not utilized. The round, 48 inch long aluminum crossbars will resist corrosion and the roof rack features a weight capacity of 150 pounds. I have attached a short video demonstration on...

  • Availability of Roof Rack for 1989 Honda Civic Wagon
  • If your Civic Wagon has the raised rails that run along the edge of the roof from the front to the rear of the vehicle, SportRack offers a crossbar solution, part # SR1098. If your Civic Wagon has a bare roof the only option we carry is the SeaSucker Monkey Bars; either the standard bars # 298-SX6000 or the folding bars # 298-SX6100. It uses vacuum cups to mount to the roof. I've linked a video of a different SeaSucker product on a VW bus that shows off the strength of the cups. You...

  • Roof Rack for 2017 Kia Sedona With Naked Roof
  • When you say you do not have roof rails does that mean your 2017 Kia Sedona has a completely naked roof or does it have flush-mounted rails that run front to back? If you could get back to me with that info it would help me to potentially find the correct part.

We do have a Ski and Snowboard rack that is compatible with multiple hitch-style Thule bike Racks (I will provide a link to the list) this carrier is the Thule Tram and Ski and Snowboard Carrier Adapter for Hitch-Mounted Bike Racks # TH9033. The ideal scenario is if you already have a roof rack installed, you have a compatible hitch-style bike rack, and if you have a 2 inch hitch receiver. If...

  • Can the Thule Goalpost Mount on the Front of a 2010 Ford F20 Super Duty Regular Cab
  • To use the Thule Goalpost, # TH997, on the front of your 2010 Ford F250 Super Duty, you will need a front mounted hitch like the Curt Front Hitch, # C31008. This will provide a hitch opening to support the Goalpost. The support straps can also be secured to your tow hooks on the front of your truck. I have attached the installation instructions for the front hitch for you to check out. The Goalpost load support should not interfere with air flow very much since the only part of the...

  • Recommended Roof Rack with Best Aerodynamics on a 2017 Honda Ridgeline
  • The most aerodynamic roor rack to fit your 2017 Honda Ridgeline is the Thule WingBar system that consists of 60 inch bars, part # TH711520 in black or # TH711500 in silver, the Rapid Traverse Foot Pack, part # TH480R, and the fit kit # THKIT1811. Since you have a naked roof it connects using the clamps in the door jambs, so it isn't the most convenient thing to put on and take off regularly. Another option is a SeaSucker product.
