My LHBS does not sell those fancy auto-siphon clips (those little guys the clip to the side of the bucket/carboy), and I was not about to pay approx $2 + $8 shipping for a piece of plastic. Call me cheap. Anyways, wandering around the store (Le Target) the other day I found these!

12 of them for about $3, and why would anyone ever need 12?! Well I used one in my racking/bottling this past weekend and it worked great. Those little arches on top worked well to hold racking tube (1/2" od 3/8" id) in the bucket.
This may seem like a trivial problem to have and a relatively uneventful solution, but I was excited to find these little guys.
They were hanging out near the coat hangers/clothespins. Hope this helps someone!

I mean, the tubing was not a major problem for me, I guess I just like control. The toothpick seems like a good idea, especially if it works! When it comes to the actually cane it seems that many people suggest using a clothespin (could be plastic) with a rubber band ( to hold the cane to the clothespin) have you tried this?
