I couldn’t recall any negative comments on the thread about the suction cups, particularly when used with the supplied foils. So I searched.
The only thing that might have raised concerns was one of mine, quoted below.

Interesting discussion about suction cups. I have used them for ages on all sorts of FP guitars and never had a problem. Twice I have used them on guitars with nitro back and sides and both times quickly caused damage.
I think it wise to explain the context of this comment. Firstly, I have never experienced issues on FP with suction cups (either on this support or the de Oro which I also use).
I have also not had any issues on nitro finish with the GuitarLift. My comments in the quoted text refer to the de Oro suction cups leaving marks on two guitars with nitro finish to back and sides. De Oro sells adhesive sheets to use under their suction cups but do not recommend it for nitro, as the damage will be affected. So it seems their suction cups are not ideal for nitro finishes. I am pretty sure it would be ok if you fitted the de Oro support and took it off after each play. I got lazy or forgetful when I had my problems.
Hope this extra explanation is useful.
