Also, the carboy cap method worked well for me when I tried it, but I do it the opposite way the OP does. I put the cap on the empty carboy I'm racking to, stick a cane in the vertical hole and suck on the angled hole to get it going. That way you're not blowing bacteria & crap from your mouth into your beer. I didn't have a problem with losing the siphon at all
its what I use cheap easy and effective.

I love the functionality of the autosiphon but I do wish they made a version SS as already mentioned or with no nooks that can collect crap and hide bacteria from my sanitizer solution. I just think it's too hard to clean some of the small crevices sometimes. I think the best thing is to rinse it immediately after using it.

Other than that I love it and I haven't found it to infect any beer yet...... so maybe I should shut it.
