This is true. But I found another way to keep the syphon out of the trub.
I use a small spring-type clamp (you know the $1, sometimes $.49 at Menard's) to keep the syphon from dropping into the trub.
The clamp adjusts the depth of the syphon into the container and sits right on the rim of the bucket or carboy.
