Expert Answers about Seasucker

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 incorporated 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...

  • Bike Rack and Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback
  • The best option we have for carrying a bike rack on a 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback is a hitch mounted option. Hitches are the most secure, easiest to load, do not affect fuel mileage, don't touch any painted surfaces, easiest to lock bikes and racks to and are not the most expensive route (that's roof rack). Trunk racks aren't quite as secure and they touch the vehicle paint so they aren't my first pick. Plus there are no trunk fits for the hatchback 2018 Civics. So a hitch option like...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Roof Rack Compatible with 2013 Toyota RAV4 EV Model
  • We do have a few options for the EV model of the 2013 Toyota RAV4. If you have no existing rails or crossbars, I recommend the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack - Vacuum Cup Mount - 48" Long # 298-SX6000. This roof rack will have a very solid hold even at highway speeds with these unique vacuum cups capable of 210 pounds pull strength each. If you have the factory raised siderails on your EV model, then I recommend the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG215. Both of these options for...

  • Will SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack Work in Sub Zero Temperatures
  • I spoke with my contact at SeaSucker regarding the Monkey Bars Roof Rack # 298-SX6100 you referenced, which is confirmed to fit your 2015 VW Beetle. He stated that the Monkey Bars will work well in the extremely cold conditions you described. They have many customers who use these bars for this type of application, whether during cold winters or for use with ski racks, etc, which will be taken up to high elevation, frigid environments. The only difference when using the rack during...

  • Recommended Best Truck Bed Bike Rack Close to Cab
  • The SeaSucker Falcon Truck Bed Bike Rack - Fork Mount - Vacuum Cup Mounted # 298-BF1002 is my recommendation for the best close to cab bike rack for the bed of your truck. This system uses vacuum cups to hold the bike rack to your rear window. It then will allow you to attack your front fork for a clean look that will give you a very stable ride. Each vacuum cup is rated for 210 lbs pull strength so your rack won't slide or move in weather or bumpy roads. I've attached a video of...

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • Best Bike Rack for Leased 2019 Subaru Impreza
  • I have a great option for you to transport your bike with your leased 2019 Subaru Impreza. I highly recommend taking a look at the SeaSucker Talon Roof Bike Rack # 298-BT1004. This is a really unique system that will allow you to carry 1 bike on your Impreza's roof OR trunk. What sets this carrier apart from others for your application is that it will mount to the vehicle body using 4 vacuum cups that won't scratch or dent the car's surface. After removing the the rack there won't be...

  • Warranty and Strength of SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack
  • The SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack # 298-SX6000 referenced in your question uses 6 vacuum cups that can mount anywhere on your vehicle's roof. The roof rack comes with a 1-year limited warranty from the manufacturer. The vacuum cups are incredibly strong and each individual cup has a pull strength rating of 210 pounds. Just to give you an idea of how strong these units are and how firmly they will attach to a vehicle, I have included a video in which a VW bus is actually lifted off...

  • 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-SX6000 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 # CAB-10.

  • Bike Rack Options For A 3 Bike Carrier On A 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
  • Although we do not currently carry a trunk mount back rack option that allows you to carry multiple bikes on your 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, I do have another solution that will allow you to carry three bikes. The only trunk mount bike rack option we currently have as a fit for your vehicle is our SeaSucker Hornet Rear Window Bike Rack part # 298-BH1302 which only carries one bike. This leaves you with two options. Option A involves the installation of one of our trailer hitches...

  • 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...

  • 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-SX6100. 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.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Kia Sedona with Naked Roof
  • What you have would be what's considered a naked roof and not what our flush mount roof racks for your vehicle are designed to fit. The SeaSucker part # 298-SX6100 would be only option. This rack style is surprisingly strong once you can get past the design. This rack also installs an removes very easily.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Using the SeaSucker 12mm Fork Mount
  • The Sea Sucker 12mm Fork Mount, part # 298-BA1349 can be mounted directly to a wood platform, but it is strongly recommended to only use it with a SeaSucker mount like the Falcon, part # 298-BF1002 for long term use.

  • Is the SeaSucker Fork Mount Threaded on One End
  • I reached out to SeaSucker regarding the Fork Mount # 298-BA1349 and they advised me that it is not threaded. The bike's axle passes through the fork mount and threads into the fork. This part is strongly recommended to only be used with a SeaSucker mount like the Falcon, part # 298-BF1002 for long term use.

  • Recommended Bike Racks For 2017 Jaguar XF Sedan
  • Actually we have a selection of bike racks that are confirmed to fit your 2017 Jaguar XF Series. For example the SeaSucker Komodo Trunk Bike Rack # 298-BK1910-BK. The bike racks like the Saris Superbones or Thule Raceway are not confirmed to fit your vehicle because they don't fit correctly or they may not be rated correctly to fit your car. I would stick with the trunk mounted bike racks linked to this page. Those racks are confirmed to fit the 2017 Jaguar XF Series therefore avoiding...

  • Recommended Bike Rack For 2015 Range Rover Sport
  • The only trunk mounted bike rack that we have that is compatible with your 2015 Range Rover Sport is the SeaSucker Hornet Rear Window Bike Rack - Handlebar Mount - Vacuum Cup Mounted # 298-BH1302. To carry two bikes, you would need to use 2 of these carriers. My recommendation is to use a roof rack and bike rack. For this, I recommend the Rhino-Rack roof rack comprised of: Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 59" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA150B-2 Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs...

  • Bike Rack to Fit at Rear of 2018 Keystone Bullet Premier 30 RIPR
  • I really wish I could recommend a SeaSucker at the rear of an RV but the RV's have a much rougher ride quality that this rack is not rated for. Looks like your RV has a 4 inch square bumper though so you could instead install the Swagman bike rack part # S80501 which would work well as it is rated for RVs. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • Mountain Bike Fork Mount Rack for a Thule X-Sporter
  • I have a solution for you, but because of the size of the X-Sporter bars, your options on bike racks are limited that are not channel mounts. The best option for you is to use the SeaSucker Talon rack, part # 298-BT1004. This rack mounts to any solid, nonporous roof surface with strong vacuum cups, letting you mount the rack easily to whatever position you want. In your case, this can be the cab of the truck or on the top of the RTT. I've included a few videos of this series of racks...

  • Fit of the SeaSucker Talon on a 2018 Audi A5 Sportback

I recommend adding a few things for use with the SeaSucker Talon for ease of use and added security. For your wheel, you'll want to purchase either the Hogg, part # 298-BA1580 or Flight Deck, part # 298-BV1022. These will let you store a quick release front wheel outside of the...
