Which suction cups do I need?

Adams suction cups have weight ratings* based on suction cups with hooks when applied dry on clean, flat glass.

suction cups weight
22mm - 0.22kgs (0.5 lbs)
32mm - 0.45kgs (1 lbs)
47mm - 1.36kgs (3 lbs)
64mm - 3.2kgs (7 lbs)
85mm - 4.5kgs (10 lbs) - 5.5kgs (12 lbs)
85mm - Pro Grade double suction hook -9kgs (20 lbs)
85mm bird feeder hook:- see listing

*A screw-in fitting, push in fitting or slot head will still have the suction cup adhesion strength on the applied surface, but may lower the holding weight of an attached product due to it's reliance on the thread made in the PVC, the push-in attachment or the closing jaws of a self closing cup.
