Worked great for me!
Give it a couple of seconds to fill then place your thumb over the hole. Sections fit tight but comes apart easy. I have NO air leaks with mine. 5 pints

works great
3 pieces clean and stick together well. it doesnt exactly fit in a 1 gallon carboy so be careful trying to take samples as it gets a bit stuck in the neck. any other vessel, this thing is perfect.

Great product
I bought this 3-piece thief because i was sick of dealing with my 1-piece and having to sanitize the whole thing. Turns out I got a better thief in the process, as this does not leak and has a bigger opening at the tip so it fills faster and is easier to handle. It is a little shorter than my other thief so I have to do 2 filling operations, but the second one is quick since I don't need much. Other notes: - good price- easy to clean- easy to storeI would buy this again (should I ever need another)

Complaints from others?
I'm not sure what the others are reviewing, but the thief is more or less a glorified straw: of course it drips from the bottom when you pinch a sample!The other reviewers that complain that they cannot draw a large enough sample are not letting the thief sit in the carboy long enough. It takes a moment for the sample to climb up the thief because of the small opening on the bottom. So place the thief in the carboy, be patient and then place thumb over the opening. Viola!The product works great! 5 Pints!

For $6 it's worth the price. It's handier than using a turkey baster to go back and forth from the carboy to my test tube.

Well worth it
I have to say, I did not like the look of this product when I first seen it. but I put it together and seen that it was a good quality item. My snap judgement was off. I give this 5 stars. It does exactly what it's supposed to.

Works great
It gets wort out for testing and it's easy to sanitize. That's the whole idea, no one should be giving bad reviews for this.
