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.

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

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!

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2020 Tesla Model X
    The SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack # 298-SX6000B is still the best and only option for installing a roof rack on your 2020 Tesla Model X. All the information from Heather in the question you asked from is still relevant for your vehicle. Like using the cable lock part # e98891 and the SeaSucker Cable Anchor part # 298-BA0020 to keep everything secured. One other thing I would say differently is my recommendation of a kayak carrier.

  • Roof Rack and Ski Carrier That Can Be Moved Between 3 Different Vehicles
    I have the perfect solution that will allow you to mount a ski carrier on a variety of different vehicles. I recommend using the SeaSucker Monkey Bars # 298-SX6000B which uses heavy duty suction cups to attach to your vehicles instead of using a vehicle specific foot pack and cross bars. The SeaSucker Monkey Bars are FAR superior to other universal racks in terms of fit, quality and durability. These suction cups are rated at 210-lbs of pull pressure each to provide a secure fit on your...

  • Best Ski and Snowboard Carrier To Use With SeaSucker Monkey Bars
    Yes I can Joyce. The best 6 ski rack to use with the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack part # 298-SX6000B is the Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Slide Out - 6 Pairs of Skis or 4 Boards part # GRR6B because it has the best grip on the bars. The Sea Sucker bars are smoother compared to other roof rack bars and some of the ski carriers can move around on the bars. The Kuat clamps have a rougher mounting surface so they make a tighter connection with the bar. I have attached a video for...

  • Roof Rack For 2017 Tesla Model X to Carry Kayaks
    I recommend the SeaSucker Monkey Bars part # 298-SX6000B for the Tesla Model X. The SeaSucker bars attach to the Tesla's roof with 6 vacuum cups and allow you to carry your kayaks when it's time to go kayaking. When you are done with your adventure you can remove the rack and easily remove for storage so the rack is not always on your roof compared to other roof racks that can be difficult to remove and reinstall.

    Yes, we have confirmed with the engineers at SeaSucker that the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack - Vacuum Cup Mount # 298-SX6000B does have enough suction power in order to stay mounted to the non-slider side of your Travato RV.

  • Will the Seasucker Monkey Bars # 298-SX6000B Fit on My Ridged Roof on My 2021 Toyota RAV 4?
    Without knowing the exact measurements of the gaps between the ridges on your vehicle, there is no way to confirm for sure whether the SeaSucker Monkey Bars # 298-SX6000B will be able to fit between the spaces. SeaSucker recommends smooth, flat surfaces in order to mount the vacuum cups, so it is not recommended to have part of the cup attached to a flat surface and part attached to the raised ridge. However, the diameter of the cups is 6 inches, so as long as you have 6 inches between...

  • Can The Vacuum Cups on the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Mount Vertically on the Back of My Camper?
    Yes, the SeaSucker Monkey Bars have a versatile vacuum cups that will allow you to mount them on the back of your 1972 Caveman camper. However, depending on how length of your kayaks, there will be issues if length of the kayak sticks out vertically past the roof. This can cause a lot of wind resistance against the kayak's surface. The best solution would be to mount the Monkey Bars on the roof of the camper. This will give you much less wind resistance. If you need a compatible kayak...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2019 VW Golf R with Naked Roof
    For your 2019 VW Golf R, there is not a confirmed roof rack fit from any of our manufacturers. Each door frame has a custom fit kit and they currently don't make one that will fit your Golf R model. The # TH145010 you referenced is only a fit for the regular Golf years 2013-2019 and e-Golf years 2015-2019 so it won't fit the Golf R model.

    Yes, the SeaSucker Monkey Bars part # 298-SX6000B can be left on for a week. Here's what Seasucker states: There’s no set time limit on our vacuum mounts. It depends in part on the surface you attach to, the condition of the vacuum mount, the load you put on it, and other factors. As for surfaces to attach to, vacuum mounts in general were designed to carry big sheets of glass and other solid surface materials, so smoother, flatter surfaces are ideal.

    We do not have custom roof racks for the 2021 Land Rover Defender, so you will need to use a universal roof rack. For that, we have the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack, part # 298-SX6000B. These use vacuum cups to mount to the roof and provide you with round bars.
