This video highlights why SeaSucker Vacuum Mounts are NOT suction cups. The key difference between the two is the in-built vacuum pump and the vacuum pad. Subsequently, with its ability to generate significant negative air pressure or vacuum, the vacuum mount is capable of holding higher levels of vacuum compared to a suction cup. For example, each 152 mm (or 6″) Vacuum Mount generates 90 kg (or 210 pounds) of direct pull strength
The Pro Tips are applicable for all SeaSucker Bike Racks. The first Pro Tip is how to maximise the holding strength and time of each vacuum mount. Firstly, pump up each vacuum mount until the plunger fully retracts. Next, grab hold of the plunger and give it a quick pull followed by a pump or two. This maximises the holding strength and time of the vacuum mount.
Another great Pro Tip is how to quickly and easily adjust the fork mount to suit your bike. As a result, this method enables you to find the right tension to secure your bike by its forks
