I like this!

This seems like a great idea! Anyone using it?

BTW, you can't always depend on Amazon having the best price! Their price on this was $8.96!

Camco Water Bandit - Walmart.com

OOPS! I should have watched the video at Camco! This won't work under pressure, it pops right off! Forget that idea!

Joe.....these have been around for over 30 years, originally called the "Water Thief". They use to come only in brown, now I see they come in green and blue. Many years ago the National Parks use to have the spigots with no threads. The water thief worked well as long as there wasn't a lot of pressure. I've had one in my water bay box of supplies for over 35 years, but haven't used it since the 90's.

I have one of those water bandits but had never used it until last summer. At one camp ground dump station I was going to flush my black tank but the water spigot had damaged threads so I attempted to use the water bandit. Found out rather quickly that it was not intended to be used with any amount of water pressure. If I had had one of Old-Biscuit's thumb screw clamps the problem would have been solved. Another thing to add to my shopping list.

Sure seems like a good idea. I've carried one for about 20 years and never found the need to use it.
