The suction cup which is sometimes referred to as a sucker, works by using negative fluid of air or water which creates a vacuum when the sucker is pressed onto a non-porous surface.
The vacuum created is basically what holds the sucker in places, the difference between the atmospheric pressure surrounding the suction cup and the low pressure within the cavity located on the inside of the cup causes the suction cup to stick or adhere to the surface.
The time it takes for the suction of the cup to lose its suction effect making the suction cup to no longer stick to the surface depends on the porosity of the surface and the time it takes for the liquid to leak back into the cavity in the cup.

- Place a dab a small amount of Vaseline or cooking oil on the rim of the cup to increase its suction
- Press the cup against the surface; make sure you go all the way down.
- Periodically press down the cup to remove any air that may still be in the space between the cup and the surface.
