SeaSucker Vacuum Cup

The SeaSucker Board Rack is quick and easy to mount. To install the rack make sure the mounting surface is clean and place the rack on your roof, trunk, or window glass then press the pump several times until the orange band disappears. To break the seal and remove the rack from your vehicle simply pull the T-shaped tab up and towards the center of the cup. As suction decreases over time the plunger will extend from the cup. When the orange indicator band shows simply repump the plunger.

I did a bit of testing to figure out how long it would take for the vacuum to loose pressure. I left the racks installed over night following the installation instructions and when I checked on the sucking cups the next day, there was one that needed to be pumped twice, but outside of that all of them were holding on nice a tight. After strapping up a 12.6 Slingshot Nitro Standup Paddle board and driving an hour up the road. Everything held up perfectly. I did not exceed 55MPH on my way up just to make sure all was well. On my way back I went up to 65MPH and no issues. I would recommend having a none lint cloth with you to clean the surface and the suction cups prior to re-installing the SeaSucker back onto the car roof. Overall, very confident in it's ability to hold the board in place and not have extra hardware to install permanently on my Rover!

I absolutely stand by this product. I still use them quite often and are holding up great with no issues at all. I have recommended them to friends and even family members. The ease of use and not having to carry a permanent fixture a top of your vehicles roof is excellent and quiet. Permanent roof racks can cause a lot of wind turbulence diminishing the quietness of your daily commute. I am very happy with them.

I have only used the product twice but it works as advertised. Very easy to install and remove. Great service from ETRAILER. I finally have a solid surf rack on my 2014 beetle.

The product still works great.

Love these things! I can use them on the top of my car and travel trailer without having to install permanent crossbars. I have owned these for 1 year now and they are superb quality! You definitely want to keep the protective suction cup covers on though.. especially if you are storing in the garage.

- 298-BX1806

Great product. I needed something to use to haul my kayak around as my car didn't have another option for a rack. It works great!

- 298-BX1806

Very pleasantly surprised. I use this to carry a board on an AMG GTS and it worked great. The cups stuck easily to the glass roof, and it was rock solid at 60 mph. I'm sure it would have been fine at higher speeds but I didn't feel compelled to test it. Installs in minutes and stores easily. The only recommendation I have is if you care much about your car to think about getting straps that have the neoprene padding around the buckles so you don't ding/scratch anything if you accidentally drop one while securing/removing your board.

- 298-BX1806

We have two sets of racks. The one for the Tesla model 3 is superb and reliable and stays on all the time. The model x has a different roof/door system and although it works well- better than anything else- a shorter cross piece would better fit on one half of the roof and allow at least one falcon door to open.

- 298-BX1806

Product works exactly as advertised. Great solution for cars without roof racks. etrailer fully answered my questions and shipped promptly. Would definitely use etrailer again.

- 298-BX1806

These work great on my 2013 Beetle.. Easy to put on and remove..I left them on overnight, had to repump 2 of the 6 just a little.. No big deal .. I carried a 10 foot SUP and it was fine . I drove up r to 60mph and had no problems..

  • Which SeaSucker Roof Rack Fits 2018 Tesla Model 3 and How to Lock to Vehicle
    SeaSucker has a roof rack that fits your 2018 Tesla Model 3 but the rack you mentioned is actually not a roof rack and is for carrying a kayak. Instead we have the # 298-SX6000B which is a fit and is compatible with the Thule cargo box you have as well. To lock this you'd want to use the window cable anchor part # 298-BA0010 with a cable lock like # e98891. The anchor gets shut in the window which gives an attachment point for the cable lock to wrap around. This isn't my favorite...

  • How to Carry a SUP on the Roof of a 2019 Hyundai Ioniq
    You can definitely use the SeaSucker Board Carrier # 298-BX1806 on your 2019 Hyundai Ioniq but this is actually a carrier in and of itself so it doesn't require a roof rack on your vehicle and you wouldn't be able to install your Thule SUP carrier to it. If you still want to stick with your Thule SUP carrier then I recommend the Yakima JetStream roof rack which consists of 50" JetStream Bars # Y00425 Black or # Y00428 Silver, the BaseLine Towers # Y00146, and the Fit Clips # Y06175 and...

    The Seasucker brand which includes the SeaSucker Board Carrier # 298-BX1806 is awesome because they're designed for extreme versatility and mounting equipment without a roof rack or hitch. My friends at SeaSucker confirm that it can absolutely be mounted to the side of your Sprinter van. I have some extra tips when using this carrier. First to make sure you're within the weight capacity. While the SeaSucker Board Carrier # 298-BX1806 can hold up to 100 lb on the roof of your vehicle...

  • SeaSucker Kayak Carrier
    SeaSucker doesn't currently produce a dedicated kayak rack, however, if you have a kayak that is less than 45 pounds, you may be able to use the SeaSucker Surfboard Carrier, part # 298-BX1806 as a viable alternative. The Surfboard/SUP carrier does include the tiedowns for securing the kayak to the racks, but not a bow or stern kit. For that, I recommend using the Malone Quik-Lash, part # MPG308 attachment points and their Speed-Link system, part # MPG309. This will give you a quick...

  • Carrying Surfboards on a 2017 Mini Clubman S Model
    You have two options for the 2017 Mini Clubman S Model for roof mounted surfboard racks. The first option is a targeted, single purpose use rack. For this, I recommend the SeaSucker Surfboard Carrier, part # 298-BX1806. This innovative rack series uses vacuum cup mounts to secure a rack temporarily to the roof of your vehicle, and is able to support 1 surf board. It's not recommended to carry two surfboards on one of these carriers as it can cause the mount to fail. That being said,...

If your paddleboard fits that criteria then you will simply need to use the included straps to secure the board for transport. If your paddle board is wider than 31 inches then I recommend the Rola Rail Extreme DFE Series Roof Rack - Naked Roofs - 47" Long # R5020 and then the lock cores # 59315.
