It was actually really clear after about 4 days. I had to go back and double check the day I clarified it.
It is kinda creepy how easy the darn kit was!
I'd just rack to a bottling bucket, from above the lees. You will avoid the sediment that way. Those clarifiers seem to make the lees kind of mucky, so they don't stir up or disturb that easily. What I'd do is move the fermenter the night before you plan on racking, to allow it time to settle after you move it. Then, rack by starting with the siphon in the middle and lower it as the level of the wine lowers, until you are just above the lees. You shouldn't suck any lees that way, and still have clear wine.
I like to use a bottling bucket, since a siphon is harder to hold in place while bottling.
