Squeeze Siphon Attachment 6-1/4" x 2-1/2" diameter
does exactly what it says it does.
This does start the siphon.
it's a little hard if you are using lower water levels (like in my snail tanks and such where a couple inches of space between the water and the top of the glass is required for laying egg clutches.) because it only pumps once. it doesn't hold the level after the pump, so it goes back down quickly.
wish the 1/4" adapter could hook onto the bulb while not in use, cause i lost it almost immediately.

Waste of money
Don't bother with this one. Hard to use, then it falls apart...

not what I expected
I was disapointed with this product because I expected it to be able to hook siphon hoses on either end and start my siphon. Intead it seem I can only hook it up to one end and it only uses up to a half inch hose. I will be siphoning out my tank the regular old way for now.

I purchased this product with the intentions of using it in line with my 50 foot siphon that attaches to my faucet to reduce the amount of water I use during water changes. The product comes with two separate attachments for different sized hosing as stated. However it is not possible to connect it in line, it can only connect at the end of your siphon, and does not support two way water flow. None of this is stated in the product info. It says "never suck on your siphon again", and I honestly don't know why anyone would ever do that. If you're having trouble starting your siphon check youtube for videos on how to get it going. On a siphon that is too long to start manually, this product will not work, it doesn't create enough suction to get water to flow through a 50 foot hose. I attached it to my smaller hand sized siphon and it worked.. kind of. It took around 20 to 30 squeezes on a short 3 foot siphon, whereas the packages states 1 or 2 times. Maybe I didn't have the adapters seated correctly, but this product seems like a total waste of time and money.
