along with being cheap, autosiphons can do double duty such as pumping sanitizer through hoses

I also use the autosiphon. It has a clip that snaps onto the shaft and slides up and down allowing height adjustment. They are more expensive than your product I think.

One concern would be the ability to clean the device. A autosiphon is nice because it's transparent and easy to disassemble, with a minimum of parts.

I think you are trying to make something most guys can just use existing technology to do for cheaper

now, look at the other sided of the siphon hose, got a way to hold that on the bottom and help keep from oxygenating the beer?

looks like a lot of foam in the keg pictured, if the hose had stayed on the bottom that would not be there

Just star san, not beer foam.

Honestly, the auto siphon was one of my best homebrew purchases. 4 bucks is a good price though

Thanks for the input guys. I guess autosiphon does everything. I will abandon this idea.

I wouldn't necessarily abandon the idea. There's probably room in the market for two competing products. I just wouldn't pour a lot of resources into it.

Yeah, this. Try to think about how else it can be used to distinguish it from an autosiphon. Since there's no set up costs to do as you already make them, it's just a matter of finding a niche.

For example, it looks like this could also be used in reverse to gently fill a carboy without splashing.

Auto-siphons break A LOT. I think there is room for competition.
