    Iíve recently picked up some pump suction cups off eBay. I then tried fixing them to a surface and left them there, after a while they lost the pressure and came off but not having owned these cup new or second hand before I was at a lost to know if thatís fine or if they are not working as they should? Do these cups deteriorate over time, holding for a shorter and shorter period or do they not wear in this way? Is there other ways they can fail over time or other ways to check what condition they are in?

    The cups certainly wear over time. Also make sure the cups are clean as well as the surface and that they have a good seal on a flat surface.

    I use, and have used, these for years. I have yet to see one of them loose suction, even when attached to aircraft.
