Default 1/2" Autosiphon

WHY DID IT TAKE ME SO LONG TO GET ONE. Just transferred from primary to keg. Heavier hose was pulling on it and causing it fall off the raised area of the better bottle into the trub. I was really worried how long I was going to have to stand there holding it when I realized I was already half way done. Why do they even sell 3/8th inch ones?

I completely agree with this statement.

Anyone know how to fix it when the little plastic clip comes out of the bottom. That is the valve and this thing is now useless.

Default Replacing autosiphon clip

I accidentally popped the valve out of my autosiphon too. I took a wooden dowel, hot glued the top of the valve on to the end of it and carefully pushed it back into place. A twist of the rod then popped the valve off. It took a while to get the sucker lined up, but it worked!
