SeaSucker Vacuum Cup Mounting Capacity, Function, and Fit

Question:

I see that there are suction cups. Is there anything to further anchor the feet to the car? I couldnt trust suck cups to stay in place during highway driving or even streets.

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 # 298-BA0010 or the trunk mounted cable anchor # 298-BA0020. You can use a cable lock like # CAB-10 for this application.

Next question: Will this work on my Fiat 500C? And if so, would I want the monkey bars or the paddle board rods. I know a few people in the US with the same car and the same problem, so if we can solve this, there are three potential sales. Thanks

The SeaSucker Monkey Bars roof rack is compatible with your 2014 Fiat 500C. It is available in a folding version # 298-SX6100 or a non-folding version # 298-SX6000 at a lesser cost. They both have 48 inch bars and the same attachments. Both systems will work well as they are universal fits.

The SeaSucker Surfboard Carrier - Vacuum Cup Mounted - 1 Surfboard or Paddleboard # 298-BX1806 is a great option if you want the 28 inch width with a maximum board width of 31 inches.

If you want the wider bars with the Monkey Bars, you can use the SUP and Surfboard Pads for SeaSucker Monkey Bars - 19-1/2" Long - Qty 2 # 298-SA1022 to give you foam cushion with polyester covers. You may also want the Cam Buckle Tie-Down Straps for SeaSucker Monkey Bars - 1" Wide x 10' Long - Qty 2 # 298-SA0010.

Let me know if you have further questions.
