Expert Answers about Seasucker

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Is a Trailer Hitch Available for a Bike Rack on a 2018 Toyota C-HR?
  • There is no trailer hitch available for your 2018 Toyota C-HR at the moment, but I did take a look at the owner's manual, and while it does not mention the warranty, it does say the installation of a tow hitch is not recommended. If it turns out a hitch will have an impact on the warranty, that does not mean you won't be able to transport bikes; in fact there is one immediate option for you in the form of the SeaSucker Mini Bomber Roof 2 Bike Rack, # 298-BM2006. This is a fork-mounted...

  • Recommended Bike Rack That Won't Scratch Or Dent Your Trunk, Roof, Or Glass To Protect Your Lease
  • For a boltless or clipless option for your 2016 Chevy Malibu, we have the SeaSucker Komodo Trunk Bike Rack - Fork Mount - Vacuum Cup Mounted - Black # 298-BK1910-BK. This will allow you to carry your bike without contact with a hitch or the clips of a traditional trunk mounted bike carrier. This carrier has a weight capacity of 45 lbs and each vacuum cup has a pull strength of 210 lbs so you can be sure your bike isn't going anywhere at highway speeds. You may also be interested in...

  • Available Ski Carrier for 2018 Ford Mustang Convertible GT
  • Once there are hitches available for your Mustang you can use a hitch-mounted bike rack like # TH912XTR as a platform for the Thule Tram Ski and Snowboard Carrier Adapter # TH9033. At this time we do not have any confirmed fits for aftermarket ski racks for the 2018 Ford Mustang GT convertible. I also checked directly with Thule and they have no fits either. SeaSucker does make specialized vacuum-cup carriers like # 298-SK2420 that attach to vehicle surfaces but these are intended...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Bike Rack Options For A 2017 Audi TT
  • The only option we have that will allow you to install a bike rack on your 2017 Audi TT is a vacuum mounted SeaSucker such as the SeaSucker Komodo Trunk Bike Rack. They are available in a wide variety of colors such as silver part # 298-BK1910-SV, blue part # 298-BK1910-AB, gold part # 298-BK1910-GO, and black part # 298-BK1910-BK. The SeaSucker Komodo is a top of the line bike rack that uses 4, 6" vacuum cups to secure the rack to your vehicle. This bike rack is compatible with bikes...

  • 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...

  • Best Bike Rack for a Leased SUV
  • We certainly have trunk mount bike racks that will fit your 2015 BMW X5, but any time a bike rack contacts a vehicle there is a potential for scratching. The key to avoiding scratches is to make sure you clean the surface of the vehicle where the bike rack will be mounted and clean the pads of the bike rack where it contacts the vehicle. The main causes for scratches or dents is dirt or debris that builds up between the bike rack pad and the vehicle or over-tightening or under-tightening...

  • 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...

  • Recommendation to Transport 2 Bikes on 2017 Volvo XC60
  • The only trunk-mount bike option we have available that is confirmed to fit your 2017 Volvo XC60 is the SeaSucker Hornet Rear Window Bike Rack # 298-BH1302. This is a very unique carrier that uses two Vacuum cups with ratcheting straps to attach to the rear window on your vehicle and secure 1 bike. It has a weight capacity of 35 pounds and includes a cam-buckle safety strap for additional stability. I have attached a video demonstration on this product so you can see exactly how it works....

  • 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...

  • Roof Mounted Kayak Carrier that Can Easily be Removed for a GMC Acadia
  • You need to start with a complete roof rack. If you give me the model year I can recommend a roof rack for your GMC Acadia. Another option, especially since you're looking or something that is easily removable is the SeaSucker MonkeyBars, part # 298-SX6000. It's a universal roof rack that uses vacuum cups. Before you second guess the stability of the cups take a look at the video I've linked of one of the SeaSucker bike racks on a VW bus. There's also a folding version of the MonkeyBars...

  • 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...

  • Fit of the SeaSucker Talon on a 2018 Audi A5 Sportback
  • The SeaSucker Talon, part # 298-BT1004 will be a compatible fit with the 2018 Audi A5 SportBack, though you may need to mount the rear tire on the rear glass of the vehicle depending on the bike's wheelbase. 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...

  • What Is The Best Way To Carry Bikes On A 2013 Toyota Rav4 EV
  • I do have a roof rack option for you, however, you will not be able to use the Thule crossbars on your 1997 Toyota 4-Runner as they are not compatible with the EV models. In order to install a roof rack on your vehicle, you will need the Malone AirFlow2 Universal Roof Rack part # MPG215 for models with factory side rails or the Inno Aero Crossbar System part # INXB108-115, part # INXS200, and part # INK329 for models without factory side rails. Regardless of which roof rack option you go...

I've linked a couple of the videos for you. We haven't received much customer feedback, positive or negative, as of yet.

  • Trunk Mounted Carbon Fiber Frame Bike Racks for a 2018 JCW Mini Countryman
  • I have a recommendation for you, but at this time there are no confirmed platform rack rear mounts for a 2018 Mini Countryman. The best option is the SeaSucker MiniBomber 2-Bike Rack, part # 298-BM2006 . This is a unique rack that uses vacuum clamps to mount to the exterior of your vehicle. It holds the bikes via fork mount and their rear wheel. Unfortunately, this will only be a valid option if your bikes front wheels can be removed via quick clamp or other methodology. They also...

  • Surfboard Rack for a Partially Open 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • There is a solution for your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited that will let you keep the front seats uncovered, however you have to have a smooth hard top for it to work. The SeaSucker Surfboard Carrier, part # 298-BX1806 is the best potential solution, but requires a smooth, unpatterned top to work. It uses extremely strong vacuum cups to mount to the vehicle temporarily, and can be positioned however you need it to be on your roof. This rack is only able to carry 1 surfboard per rack,...

  • 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.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation For A 2015 Mercedes-Benz E- Class
  • I have an option available for you to haul a bike on your 2015 Mercedes-Benz E- Class. The best way to do this is with our SeaSucker Komodo Trunk Bike Rack part # 298-BK1910-BK. Unfortunately, they currently do not have a hitch receiver compatible with your vehicle nor do they make a roof rack for a convertible therefore, your only option is a trunk mounted bike rack. This bike rack features a vacuum cup design that will not scratch or dent your car's surface.

  • Availability of Trunk Mounted Bike Rack for 2016 Nissan Rogue with Spoiler
  • I do have some possible solutions for you, however there is not a standard trunk-mounted bike rack available that is confirmed to fit your 2016 Nissan Rogue that features the rear spoiler. The spoiler on this particular model vehicle is simply not strong enough to support the tension from a trunk mounted bike rack. Another available option that wouldn't require you to purchase any additional parts like a roof rack or trailer hitch is the SeaSucker Komodo Trunk Bike Rack # 298-BK1910-SV....

It's also the only option since you have the spoiler and and don't want to go the hitch route. I attached an install picture that shows the rack in use for you to check out as well.

  • Can the SeaSucker Ski Carrier be Locked to a Vehicle
  • The SeaSucker ski rack # 298-SK2420 has locks to prevent theft of the skis or boards loaded in it but nothing to prevent the rack itself from being removed from the vehicle. That is the Achilles' heal of vacuum cup-mounted carriers like this. But because it is so easy to use you could remove the rack and store it in the vehicle if you will be leaving the vehicle.
