SeaSucker Vacuum Cup

Monkey Bars are the perfect solution for adding a roof rack to your vehicle with a naked roof. Vacuum cups attach in seconds to the roof, trunk, or glass on your car, SUV, van, motorhome, or trailer. Because they don't require a permanent installation, the Monkey Bars are great for transporting gear when you're traveling by rental car. And if you're worried that vacuum cups won't stay attached to your vehicle, you can rest assured because each vacuum cup provides 210 lbs of suction, giving you a total of 1,260 lbs of pull strength. Your gear isn't going anywhere! Additionally, the rack stores easily in your trunk or garage when not in use, or in your suitcase while traveling.


Scratch-Resistant Vacuum Cups

SeaSucker Vacuum Cup

The SeaSucker Monkey Bars are quick and easy to mount. To install them, make sure the mounting surface is clean and place them on your roof, trunk, or window glass then press the pumps several times until the orange bands disappear. Depending on the surface they're mounted to and the load being put on them, suction in the cups will decrease over time. Make sure to check the plungers before you get into your vehicle. When you see the orange indicator bands show simply re-pump the plungers.


SeaSucker T-Shaped Tab

To break the seal on each cup and remove the rack from your vehicle, simply pull the T-shaped tabs up and towards the center of the cups - it's that easy. Remove the body and vacuum cups and store them in your trunk or garage, or put them in a storage bag or suitcase to take with you.


Versatile Roof Rack

SeaSucker rubber pads

Monkey Bars are compatible with most accessories that clamp around roof rack bars, including bike, ski, watersport, and cargo carriers. Vacuum cups allow you to put the front and rear crossbars anywhere, so you can customize the crossbar spread to fit your accessory. This also allows you use the crossbars to carry kayaks, lumber, and other longer items as well as cargo baskets, luggage, and other shorter items.


Compact Storage

SeaSucker push buttons

The bars screw apart in the middle. For compact storage, simply unscrew them and store them in your trunk, garage, or even in your suitcase if you're traveling or using a rental car.

SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack - Round Bars - Vacuum Cup Mount - 48" Long - 298-SX6000B

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (26 Customer Reviews)

Lightweight aluminum crossbars and vacuum cups create a roof rack for your vehicle with a naked roof. Durable, round bars install in seconds and work with most clamp-on accessories. Removes quickly for storage in your trunk when not in use.

Easy fit on Tesla Model X. Our fitment is for carrying kayaks and the occasional roof box. I would give these 5 stars if SeaSucker had the option to pivot the front mounts 90 degrees to decrease a sloping roof angle. The front mount placement is critical on a Model X as the front glass roof slope/curve means you'll definitely need to moisten the cups and press down firmly while suctioning to get a good fit. Another recommendation is to let the racks sit for 2-3 hours and then check the plungers to see if any have released air (clean and reposition if they have). Repeat the same dry fitment with your cargo attached.



by:

I've waited until I had a chance to install it and test it on my 2017 Mustang before wrote this. Fits perfect and ruggedly built. I thought we would never be able to transport two kayaks but they proved me wrong. Love these Monkey Bars.



by:

Great way to add a roof rack to your vehicle. Quality build and very easy on/off, works great



by:

Still have them on my car they've been a real asset glad I got it



by:

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!!!!

Still works amazingly well



by:

Fell off the car the first time I used them. Fortunately I wasn't carrying anything, but the bar sustained significant damage and is now unusable. Contacted the company for a replacement, which they said they would provide, but still haven't seen it after a year.

The manufacturer will reach out to you. When installing the bars you will want to make sure that the surface is clean and then press the pumps several times until the orange bands disappear. Make sure to check the plungers before you get into the vehicle. if you see the orange indicator bands show simply re-pump the plungers.



by:

These SeaSucker Monkey Bars are the greatest! I haul ladders and Kayaks like nobody's business! AND, I'm hauling all this on my 2005 Gran Marquis at over 70 miles an hour at some times!! Great investment. I just wish there was a better way of locking them to my car. I'll usually just pull them off and put them in the trunk. J.S.



by:

Very good option for my car. Rack is very stable under the weight of my Kayak



by:

Today I installed my new SeaSucker Monkey Bars and 2 sets of Curt J-Style folding kayak carriers on my 2020 Hyundai Veloster. I drove about 25 miles with them, with speeds up to about 60 mph. Everything fit perfectly and worked perfectly. I highly recommend these!

Best solution for my Smart 2 fortwo that I tow behind my RV... with a bike rack in the rear and this solid roof rack it is the perfect setup!



by:

Fantastic easy to use site with so many options. I had questions so I called and Tracey provided everything to sort through the options. If there was an award for best in class customer service Tracey is the gold metal winner.



by:

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.

  • Roof Rack Option for 2012 Jeep Liberty Sport without Raised Roof Rails
    The only roof rack option we have for your 2012 Jeep Liberty Sport that does not have raised rails is the SeaSucker kit part # 298-SX6000B since all of the other manufacturers only list versions of your vehicle that have rails. This rack attaches with vacuum cups which hold the bars firmly to the vehicle roof. I attached a review video for more info on this as well.

  • Recommendations for Roof Rack for a 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan with Naked Roof

  • Can Rooftop Tent be Installed on SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack
    The SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack # 298-SX6000B would be able to handle the dynamic (or weight while moving) weight of a Thule Tepui rooftop tent (or any rooftop tent for that matter) but the issue is with the static weight rating which is what it can hold when the vehicle isn't moving.

  • Compatibility of SeaSucker Monkey Bars and Thule SnowPack Ski and Snowboard Carrier
    The catch to using accessories with round bars like the SeaSucker Monkey Bars # 298-SX6000B you referenced is that you need to have the unit the accessory is meant to hold installed so that they don't fall over. What you are experiencing with the Thule SnowPack Ski and Snowboard Carrier # TH7326 is perfectly normal with round bars and shouldn't be an issue once you have the skis/snowboards in place.

    The overall width of a 2023 Buick Enclave (not including the mirrors) is 78.7" so 50" crossbars like the Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00425 most likely wouldn't extend past the roof of the vehicle.

  • Roof Rack For 2003 Ford F-250/F-350 Carrying Kayaks While Hauling 5th Wheel.
    If you're wanting a roof rack on your 2003 Ford F-250/350 there will be some drilling required on any roof rack system. The Rhino Rack # Y01-120B comes with tracks which will install on your roof. Again, drilling required. Then you can use a kayak carrier like # S510. This comes with tie downs and can carry one kayak.
