SeaSucker Vacuum Cup

Monkey Bars are the perfect solution for adding a roof rack to your vehicle with a naked roof. Vacuum cups attach in seconds to the roof, trunk, or glass on your car, SUV, van, motorhome, or trailer. Because they don't require a permanent installation, the Monkey Bars are great for transporting gear when you're traveling by rental car. And if you're worried that vacuum cups won't stay attached to your vehicle, you can rest assured because each vacuum cup provides 210 lbs of suction, giving you a total of 1,260 lbs of pull strength. Your gear isn't going anywhere! Additionally, the rack stores easily in your trunk or garage when not in use, or in your suitcase while traveling.


Scratch-Resistant Vacuum Cups

SeaSucker Vacuum Cup

The SeaSucker Monkey Bars are quick and easy to mount. To install them, make sure the mounting surface is clean and place them on your roof, trunk, or window glass then press the pumps several times until the orange bands disappear. Depending on the surface they're mounted to and the load being put on them, suction in the cups will decrease over time. Make sure to check the plungers before you get into your vehicle. When you see the orange indicator bands show simply re-pump the plungers.


SeaSucker T-Shaped Tab

To break the seal on each cup and remove the rack from your vehicle, simply pull the T-shaped tabs up and towards the center of the cups - it's that easy. Remove the body and vacuum cups and store them in your trunk or garage, or put them in a storage bag or suitcase to take with you.


Versatile Roof Rack

SeaSucker rubber pads

Monkey Bars are compatible with most accessories that clamp around roof rack bars, including bike, ski, watersport, and cargo carriers. Vacuum cups allow you to put the front and rear crossbars anywhere, so you can customize the crossbar spread to fit your accessory. This also allows you use the crossbars to carry kayaks, lumber, and other longer items as well as cargo baskets, luggage, and other shorter items.


Compact Storage

SeaSucker push buttons

The bars screw apart in the middle. For compact storage, simply unscrew them and store them in your trunk, garage, or even in your suitcase if you're traveling or using a rental car.

These SeaSucker Monkey Bars are the greatest! I haul ladders and Kayaks like nobody's business! AND, I'm hauling all this on my 2005 Gran Marquis at over 70 miles an hour at some times!! Great investment. I just wish there was a better way of locking them to my car. I'll usually just pull them off and put them in the trunk. J.S.




by:

Fell off the car the first time I used them. Fortunately I wasn't carrying anything, but the bar sustained significant damage and is now unusable. Contacted the company for a replacement, which they said they would provide, but still haven't seen it after a year.


Comments
The manufacturer will reach out to you. When installing the bars you will want to make sure that the surface is clean and then press the pumps several times until the orange bands disappear. Make sure to check the plungers before you get into the vehicle. if you see the orange indicator bands show simply re-pump the plungers.

Very good option for my car. Rack is very stable under the weight of my Kayak




by:

Fantastic easy to use site with so many options. I had questions so I called and Tracey provided everything to sort through the options. If there was an award for best in class customer service Tracey is the gold metal winner.




by:

I had actually used the bicycle version of the seasucker. My prior car was a Lotus Evora and the seasucker worked extremely well. This roof rack is to hold my Racing Scull Shell on my Porsche Cayman. Porsche does not offer a roof rack for this model anymore and as I thought, the Seasucker will fit the bill. Weird looking to see an almost 30' Scull on top of a car almost half the length, but literally something you don't see every day. I just check the suction every time I refuel, but other than that it does the job!!!!

    To install tracks in the grooves on the roof of your 2002 Windstar you will have to have a custom installation done.

    You can use the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack - Vacuum Cup Mount - 48" Long # 298-SX6000B on your Porsche Cayenne but it is intended to be used as a roof rack. I reached out to my contact at SeaSucker and they said using as side rails shouldn't be an issue as the vacuum cups will hold (they are rated for 210 lbs pull each) but they haven't tested for that application so it wouldn't be supported by warranty.
