Suction Cup - Uses


Suction cups have a number of commercial and industrial applications. In office and household settings, they are commonly used to affix objects (ranging from signs to mugs) to nonporous vertical surfaces such as refrigerator doors and tiled walls. Large suction cups are used to temporarily hold and move large panes of glass and are often utilized when fitting automobile windscreens, raised floor tiles, etc.

Suction cups are also found on Nerf darts and toilet plungers.

Specialized suction cups have also been utilized by urban climbers to scale buildings with smooth exterior surfaces.
