Seasucker holds tight to roof, have not tested at highway speeds. 896665

- 298-SX6000B

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!!!! 872192

- 298-SX6000B

Once again etrailer.com has exceeded my expectations! This is my 4th purchase and everything has always arrived today on time (or ahead) and with no damage!! From box to car it took about 15 minutes to install. I even asked a question before purchasing and etrailer.com was able to answer and provide information that was useful and helpful. I will keep buying from etrailer.com. 800316

  • Roof Rack and Ski Carrier That Can Be Moved Between 3 Different Vehicles
    I have the perfect solution that will allow you to mount a ski carrier on a variety of different vehicles. I recommend using the SeaSucker Monkey Bars # 298-SX6000B which uses heavy duty suction cups to attach to your vehicles instead of using a vehicle specific foot pack and cross bars. The SeaSucker Monkey Bars are FAR superior to other universal racks in terms of fit, quality and durability. These suction cups are rated at 210-lbs of pull pressure each to provide a secure fit on your...

  • Roof Rack for a 2019 Audi Q7 with Factory Flush Side Rails
    I do have some roof rack options for your 2019 Audi Q7 with factory flush side rails that run front to back. The Thule AeroBlade Edge system # TH7603-TH7604 with fit kit # THKIT3145 is going to be the option that looks the most like a factory roof rack. The bars are integrated into the feet and the feet connect to factory mounting points on the vehicle. It is also available with black bars using # TH7603B-TH7604B and the same fit kit. Another outstanding option is the SeaSucker Monkey...

  • SeaSucker Vacuum Cup Mounting Capacity, Function, and Fit
    The SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack - Vacuum Cup Mount - Folding - 48" Long # 298-SX6000B 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...

  • Can SeaSucker Monkey Bars be Installed on Tear Trailer to Carry Bikes
    Although the SeaSucker Monkey Bars # 298-SX6000B would fit they do make me a little nervous since your trailer slopes down going from the front to the back. These vacuum cups each have a pull strength rating of 210 lbs but at that slope it would put more weight at different areas for both the roof rack and any bike rack that you would use. A better option for your situation might be the Jack-It # LC429756 which mounts in the same location as the A-Frame jack and fits around jacks that...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2019 VW Golf R with Naked Roof
    For your 2019 VW Golf R, there is not a confirmed roof rack fit from any of our manufacturers. Each door frame has a custom fit kit and they currently don't make one that will fit your Golf R model. The # TH145010 you referenced is only a fit for the regular Golf years 2013-2019 and e-Golf years 2015-2019 so it won't fit the Golf R model. My recommendation for you is to use the universal fit SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack - Vacuum Cup Mount - 48" Long - Black # 298-SX6000B. This roof...

  • Roof Rack Options for 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee with All Black Roof Rails
    There are only two kinds of roof racks available for your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee without the e-group rails. We have the style you said you don't care for which uses clamps to attach to the doors like the Rhino Rack # RRVA137S-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK234 and we have the SeaSucker style which uses vacuum cups to attach to the roof like the part # 298-SX6000B. See picture. I REALLY wish we had a rack that attached to the rails you have like you mentioned but at this time we do not.

  • Best Ski and Snowboard Carrier To Use With SeaSucker Monkey Bars
    Yes I can Joyce. The best 6 ski rack to use with the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack part # 298-SX6000B is the Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Slide Out - 6 Pairs of Skis or 4 Boards part # GRR6B because it has the best grip on the bars. The Sea Sucker bars are smoother compared to other roof rack bars and some of the ski carriers can move around on the bars. The Kuat clamps have a rougher mounting surface so they make a tighter connection with the bar. I have attached a video for...

  • Is the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack Safe for Long Distance Trips
    I would just check the pressure for the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack # 298-SX6000B any time you make a pit stop. As long as you follow the instructions when installing these on your 2013 Lincoln MKS you won't need to worry about them coming off. It is a good idea to do a quick visual check though at pit stops (or whenever you want to make you comfortable) just to be on the safe side. To secure your kayak to this roof rack I recommend using the Pads for SeaSucker Monkey Bars #...

  • How Long Can SeaSucker Monkey Bars be Left on Vehicle
    Yes, the SeaSucker Monkey Bars part # 298-SX6000B can be left on for a week. Here's what Seasucker states: There’s no set time limit on our vacuum mounts. It depends in part on the surface you attach to, the condition of the vacuum mount, the load you put on it, and other factors. As for surfaces to attach to, vacuum mounts in general were designed to carry big sheets of glass and other solid surface materials, so smoother, flatter surfaces are ideal. Clean surfaces and clean SeaSuckers...

  • Roof Rack For 2017 Tesla Model X to Carry Kayaks
    I recommend the SeaSucker Monkey Bars part # 298-SX6000B for the Tesla Model X. The SeaSucker bars attach to the Tesla's roof with 6 vacuum cups and allow you to carry your kayaks when it's time to go kayaking. When you are done with your adventure you can remove the rack and easily remove for storage so the rack is not always on your roof compared to other roof racks that can be difficult to remove and reinstall. The SeaSucker brand is the only roof rack that works on the Tesla Model X's...

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier to Transport 2 Kayaks on SeaSucker Monkey Bar Roof Rack
    I really like the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack # 298-SX6000B that you referenced for your 2018 Toyota Camry because of its unique versatility and ease of installation/removal. For a kayak carrier to mount to these bars I recommend taking a look at the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073. These durable cradles can support 1 kayak when in the J-style position or both of your kayaks when in the vertical position. This is a perfect choice for the Monkey Bars because of the included...

  • Will Temperature Affect SeaSucker Suction and Is It Compatible With The Thule Portage
    The SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack # 298-SX6000B are compatible with the Thule Portage Canoe Carrier # TH819 because the Portage works with round bars. When it comes to the SeaSucker technology, you will not have an issue with temperature changes as long as the rubber suction cups are room temperature when you install the rack. You don't want to try to install the rack if the rubber cups have been in freezing temps and they are stiff. They need to be pliable to gain the suction that you...

  • Available Bar Length for SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack
    The SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Racks are only available in the 48" long size, part # 298-SX6000B. There is not a longer (or shorter) bar size available for this particular system. If you can tell me what model vehicle you are wanting to equip with a roof rack, along with its roof configuration (bare roof, factory side rails, etc) I will be happy to make a different recommendation that uses longer crossbars.

  • 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-SX6000B, which uses vacuum cups to mount to the vehicle roof. I know what you might...

    The best roof rack we have available that will work well on your 2010 Jeep Liberty that features flush mount side rails is the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack # 298-SX6000B. I actually really like this system because it provides a lot of versatility with how you actually want to mount it and position it on your roof.

  • 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, part # 298-SX6000B 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 cars at up to 140 mph.

  • 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.

  • Could Yakima Crossbars be Used with SeaSucker Roof Rack # 298-SX6000B
    Yakima round bars are actually slightly smaller in diameter than what comes with the SeaSucker roof rack kits like the part # 298-SX6000B you referenced. The SeaSucker bars are 1-1/4 inch thick whereas Yakima bars are 1-1/8 inch thick. This means you wouldn't be able to use Yakima bars with this roof rack.

  • Roof Rack for Fiberglass Topper on 1995 Ford Bronco
    If your Bronco's fiberglass topper has a textured or dimpled surface, or if it is now a little rough from many years of use, it will not be a good match for the Seasucker Monkey Bars Vacuum Cup Roof Rack # 298-SX6000B. This unique roof rack will work great on smooth surfaces but on your top I suggest using a track-mount rack system like the Yakima HardTop # Y01618. This particular track-type rack uses 54-inch tracks and 60-inch crossbars but we have more options in other sizes too so...

  • Would SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack Have Enough Capacity For Carrying Plywood
    I attached a link to our returns policy to this page but the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack # 298-SX6000B easily will work with the wood you need to transport. It has a weight capacity of 150 lbs and 210 lbs of vacuum strength per cut so it's not going anywhere. The speed you mentioned travelling would not be an issue either. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited with the Black Hard Top
    The vacuum cups of the SeaSucker roof rack part # 298-SX6000B that you referenced are 6 inches in diameter so based on the picture you sent in the ridges would interfere with this kit installing. So you'd have to go with a roof rack that uses a universal style gutter-mount like the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Kit part # RRVA150B-2, # RRVA-FK1-2, and # RRRL110S5-2 which is a confirmed fit.

  • Can SeaSucker Roof Rack Be Used in Cold Weather Climates
    We've asked SeaSucker in the past about using their racks like the # 298-SX6000B you referenced in cold temperatures and they have told us that as long as the vacuum cups are room temperature when you install them on the vehicle you are fine. They need to be pliable to seal properly but once installed the cold weather is not an issue at all. According to them a lot of customers use their roof racks for carrying their gear for extreme snow sports so they can withstand cold temperatures easily.

  • Roof Mount Bike Rack that Will Fit SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack
    The bike rack that you see in the video for the SeaSucker Monkey Bars # 298-SX6000B is the Rhino-Rack MountainTrail # RBC035. This is an excellent bike rack that holds the bike at the fork and rear tire. It comes with both a bike lock and a rack lock to deter theft. I have linked a video featuring this rack for you plus the video of the Monkey Bars. You can also deter theft of the Money Bars by using hatch/trunk anchor # 298-BA0020 or window anchor # 298-BA0010 with cable lock # e98891.
