It doesn't get much easier than this:

Don't remember where I got it, but I have a plastic cone with a slot for the cane. It goes around the cane, and into the carbuoy like a 6" long stopper. Anyway, it holds it still and maintains the height.

Of course, now that I use an auto-siphon it's useless....

If you have a SWMBO, ask for one of those foam wedges that they use to apply makeup. that's how I keep my autosiphon from sliding down.

well, despite what I thought you guys were correct

I decided to just leave it in the primary for 2 weeks and 5 days, I don't have a lot of free time so I did it a couple days shy of the standard 3 weeks

I siphoned everything into another 5 gallon container and mixed the priming sugar in....

I did use a paint filter though (I sanitized it) and it picked up quite a bit of stuff. My bottles are now in the dishwasher waiting to be filled

I made the mistake of smelling the primary right after I took the lid off lol.

The beer gives off an extremely potent alcohol smell. Almost like there is too much alcohol lol. Anyway it looks and smells just like beer....

This is going to be a painful 3 weeks that the beer is just sitting in the bottle staring at me, I can't wait.

I get all choked up when I rack to the bottling bucket. But mostly because I'm so proud of my beer.
