Which to choose?

As long as your suction cup works properly, it's hard to choose incorrectly. However, some are a bit better suited for certain applications than others. Suction cups come in all different sizes after all, and they have quite varying levels of strength as well. You could weigh the item you're planning on attaching to the suction cup to see how heavy it is and whether the suction cup will have enough power to stay in place when it's attached.

Some options, such as these suction cups by Holiday Joy, have attached hooks to make hanging objects even easier. The added help is one of the big reasons why they're our favorite pick on this list. Then again, the Redcamp Heavy Duty Suction Cup Anchor offers much more strength with the ability to hold up to 22 pounds securely. That puts the other options on our list to shame in comparison.
