dedhedjed - THANKS for the quality recommendation! Can you tell me more about what this item does or how it works please? The description says, "Food grade nylon, custom-molded to include an integral backnut. Keeps beer (and yeast sediment) out of the Transfer Valve during fermentation. Fits our Bottling Valve above, or any valve with 3/4” tapered male pipe threads." My guess is that this is like a nylon cover that fits over the male-threaded portion of the spigot that protrudes inside the bucket. Thanks again!

azingsheim - THANKS for the great sugesstion! This seems like a super simple solution. A rubber stopper might not even need to be epoxied if it were tapped in tight enough.

Thanks but that is not a concern. It can get kicked or bumped out, and it is difficult to clean. It's just a personal decision for me - I just dont trust them as much as I used to.

That is exactly what it does. You orient it so it is pointing down and then it will form a siphon when you connect a hose to the bottling spigot. It does a great job minimizing sediment transfer. Highly recommended.
