Murff’s Claminator™ Geoduck Tube
Diameter: 11-5" in.
Height: 40 in.
An extra band (1" high and 3/16" thick) has been added to the top of the geoduck tube for reinforcement allowing the clammer to drive the tube down into the sand or mud using a block of wood and a heavy hammer or mallet. Our geoduck tubes are made out of high quality SAE 304 stainless steel.
Two 3/4" holes are drilled near the top of the tube to allow insertion of a 3/4" steel pipe to aid in the removal of the tube from the sand/mud. The steel pipe is not included.

Unlike razor clams, a geoduck (“gooey-duck”) will not "run" or dig down any deeper in the sand as you dig for it. The main purpose of the geoduck tube, therefore, is to encircle the geoduck and prevent the sand from collapsing in as you dig down to reach the geoduck. Center the geoduck in the middle of the tube and then work the tube as far down in the sand as you can. The tube can be vigorously wiggled back and forth while applying downward pressure. When you are unable to push it down any further, you can try placing a plank of wood across the top of the tube and using a heavy hammer or mallet, drive the tube deeper in the sand. The geoduck will likely mostly retract its neck once you disturb the sand around them. Carefully remove sand and water from the inside of the tube until you reach the geoduck. When you get down to where you can see/feel the neck, the shell is probably down an additional 6" to 8". You need to continue carefully digging deeper until you can run your fingers around the whole geoduck's shell enough to loosen the sand's grip on the shell. Don't try just pulling the neck, as you will likely pull it off where it joins the upper part of the shell.

General Care Recommendations
Murff’s Claminator™ products are tools and should be treated with the care that any quality tool requires. These products are made to extremely high standards of quality. Taken care of, they should provide years (even generations) of use. Rinsing with fresh water after each use will reduce the chance of the stainless steel becoming rusted or pitted. The valve and vent tube should also be rinsed thoroughly with fresh water and should be free of sand or other debris before storing. Listen for the rattle of the valve bolt! If it rattles, its working properly! Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for more information on cleaning and care of your Murff’s Claminator™ products.
