Seasucker Suction Cup Car Rack
« on: July 02, 2019, 05:59:37 AM »

purchasing one of these will suck a whole lotta money from a person--might even make a sucker out of a person, at these prices

but seems a decent concept for a quick attach rack that doesnt need to be mounted fulltime--so it's in the car, stowed, not impacting gas mileage even when nothing is racked

cant stand the thru the window soft racks--for a quick run down to the beach, ya--but i took one on a road trip and it was a PITA

Great rack tho. Surfboards, 14' SUP all held strong. Also had full sheets of plywood on it!

Speaking just for myself, I wouldn't trust those suction cup car racks.

The racks I use on top of my truck cab are Thule Roof Racks. The towers on them are made of metal and the 58" long bars are made of steel. In order not to damage anything resting on the two steel bars, the business part of them is covered by 42" long soft roof pads that fit over the steel bars.

A friend of mine has those and he likes them. One problem is they can be removed and there's no way to lock them. He has to put them in his trunk  when  he goes surfing.

That combined with the single strap approach seems pretty sensible to me  ;D

Iíve had seasucker for the past year. Took me a month or so to trust it. I was very skeptical.

But Iíve left it on my roof for weeks at a time and had zero issues. I love being able to take it on and off. And have never worried about someone stealing it.

For reference, the largest board Iíve carried is a 12í6Ē and Iíve even strapped two boards up there. I think itís a great system because I donít want a permanent rack on my vehicle.

has anyone seen cross-bars, for roof rails, that clamp on/off easily?

mine were 75$ on amazon, and are fine, except that they go on and off with a hex key, which is aPITA. I would pay up for a pair I can put on and remove easily.....

Thule Crossroad are great rail grabbers, but also use a hex key.
