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! 445162


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.

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.. 574476

- 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. 548258

Arrived in time. Packaged well. Excited to try! 518292

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. 482544


The product still works great.

Do you have a question about this Watersport Carrier?

  • 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...

  • Surfboard Carrier Options for 2016 Ford Fusion
  • To transport your two surf boards on an Aero style roof rack like the Rhino-Rack 2500-Series racks, shown on the linked page along with all options for your Fusion, I suggest using one of the pad or block style surf board carriers shown on the other linked page. As an example, Rhino-Rack offers their pad and tie-down kit # RRRWP05 which includes a set of two 33-1/2-inch long crossbar pads along with tie downs. Other sizes are offered too and similar products are available from Thule,...

  • SeaSucker Vacuum Cup Strength Rating and Compatibility
  • I don't have any information on the VacuRack, but the Seasucker is a great product. The SeaSucker Surfboard Carrier - Vacuum Cup Mounted - 1 Surfboard or Paddleboard # 298-BX1806 will fit on your 2014 VW Beetle and has 6 vacuum cups. Each cup on any of their carriers is rated for 210 lbs and has been tested for speeds up to 140 mph. This particular product weighs just 12 lbs and will absolutely hold your board safely to your vehicle. For added security you can add the SeaSucker Cable...

  • Difference Between SeaSucker Surfboard Carriers 298-BX1806 and 302-SP2106
  • The biggest difference is that the feed with the vacuum cups of the SeaSucker Paddleboard Carrier # 302-SP2106 are telescoping at 24-44 inches whereas the SeaSucker Surfboard Carrier # 298-BX1806 on the other hand has the bars fixed at 28 inches.

  • Carrying a 12 Foot Stand Up Paddleboard with a 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor
  • I have a possible solution for you, but unfortunately at this time there aren't any roof rack fits available for the 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor. I would normally recommend a ladder rack, however there are no good fits for your planned tonneau cover addition. Since you're looking for 100% quick removal, your hands down best option is the SeaSucker Surfboard Carrier, part # 298-BX1806. This innovative rack mounts using extremely strong vacuum cups to the roof of your vehicle, completely bypassing...

  • Can Sea Sucker Vacuum Cup Paddleboard Carrier 298-BX1806 Hold 31-Inch-Wide Paddleboard
  • Yes, the maximum width of a paddleboard used with the Sea Sucker Vacuum Cup Paddleboard carrier # 298-BX1806 is 31-inches, according to my contact at Sea Sucker. If you wish to add a cable lock like # CAB-10 you can use either their trunk anchor # 298-BA0020 or their window anchor # 298-BA0010.

  • 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...

  • Kayak and SUP Carrying Options for 2011 Ram 2500 with Hard Tonneau Cover
  • Thank you for the photo of your Ram's hard tonneau cover on which you wish to transport a kayak and/or stand-up-paddleboard (SUP). You have several ways to go here. The easiest lowest-cost option is to use foam block style carriers like # S65156 which can rest directly on the cover without the weight and expense of a rack. These foam blocks can also be used on rack bars if you prefer. No permanent modifications to your cover are required. We also offer a vacuum cup carrier from SeaSucker,...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Stand Up Paddleboard Carrier SUP for 2014 Toyota Prius V
  • I recommend starting with the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack with GTX Mounting System for Naked Roofs # 59729 which is a custom fit for your 2014 Prius V and is a really nice aero bar option with top channel for other accessories. Then I recommend using the Malone SUP30 Surfboard and SUP Pads w/ Tie-Downs for Crossbars - Universal - 30" Long - Qty 2 # MPG312 because it comes with the protection you need for your rails and board. If you want a higher end carrier with security integrated for...

We also offer a wide range of paddle board carriers that either mount onto the roof rack or that can be used directly on the roof surface, like foam block carrier # S65156 from Swagman. We even have the awesome vacuum-cup-mount SeaSucker paddle board carrier # 298-BX1806 that gives you the flexibility to position the carrier on almost part of the roof surface. For a rack for...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for Stand Up Paddleboard on 2006 Nissan Xtrail
  • Since your mom doesn't have the raised factory side rails on her 2006 Nissan Xtrail, it must have the flush mounted rails. The Rhino-Rack RSP Roof Rack for Flush, Factory Side Rails - Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Qty 2 # RSP04 which will bolt into the factory locations hidden in the flush mounted rails. I've attached the installation details to assist. I then recommend the Thule SUP Taxi XT Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier - Roof Mount - 2 Boards # TH810001 and have attached a video...

  • Roof Racks for 2004 Honda Civic 2-Door Coupe for Transporting Surf Boards
  • We can help you with a roof rack and surf board carriers for your 2004 Honda Civic 2-door coupe. Roof rack options for your Civic come from Yakima and SeaSucker and are displayed on the page I linked for you. Yakima offers both standard round bar racks and also their quieter Jetstream rack systems. The round bar rack is the lowest-cost setup and is made of parts # Y00408, # Y00146, # Y03536, # Y06162 and # Y06159. But for only a few more dollars you can get the black Jetstream rack,...

  • How to Carry a Surfboard on a Motorhome Using Foam Pads
  • We do have foam blocks like the Yakima # Y07412 which need to be installed on aero-style crossbars. For a generic roof rack fit we carry systems like the Yakima HardTop SL # Y01618 which will do an excellent job at carrying your surfboard. A whole roof rack system can be a little bit tricky to mount on a motorhome so the SeaSucker Surfboard Carrier # 298-BX1806 might be more of what you are looking for. This kit features the same type of foam pads and uses powerful suction cups to secure...

  • Recommended PUP Carrier for 2016 Ford Mustang
  • To transport your 106 SUP with your 2016 Ford Mustang, I recommend first installing the Yakima Q Tower Round Bar Roof Rack. This system consists of # Y00409 for the two 58 inch Round CrossBars, # Y00124 for the Q Towers and # Y00678 for the Q Clips. This will give you a very nice, sturdy system for your Mustang. I have attached an installation video on this roof rack so you can see exactly how it installs and operates. Then for a PUP carrier, I highly recommend the Yakima SupPup Stand-Up...

  • Roof Rack and Stand Up Paddleboard Carrier for a 2008 Audi A4
  • One of the better kits we have for SUP boards are the aero-style crossbars. These assist in carrying Stand Up Paddleboards by being aerodynamic themselves, and their wider bases providing more stability for the boards. I recommend the Thule AeroBlade Traverse kit, consisting of: Thule WingBars, 47 inches, Silver, part # TH711200 or Black, TH711220 Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack, part # TH480R Thule Fit Kit, part # THKIT1212 Thule is compatible with a wide range of accessories...

  • 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,...

  • 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. It just depends what you're planning to carry on the...

The SeaSucker Surfboard Carrier, part # 298-BX1806 is the best potential solution, but requires a smooth, unpatterned top to work.
