This magnet kit will swap out the suction cups on the Exterior Vehicle Rod Carrier. There's some advantages to using the magnets in some cases versus the suction cup mounts:
If you are using the SUMO in really rainy conditions a lot and NOT going to drive above 45 mph AND you remove the SUMO from your vehicle when parked while fishing, magnets may be a better choice.
- Magnets will only adhere to steel surfaces (check your hood and roof with a refrigerator magnet to find out).
- Magnets are less sensitive to temperature, dust and water on the car's surface.
- Magnets will work in extremely cold temperatures.
- Magnets require flat surfaces for optimum adhesion.
Set of 2 magnets. Two sets required to convert a rack entirely to Magnets.
