I pull the airlock out of my bucket and sample through that hole but I do not know if that would work for you.

I just open the lid and take a sample.

I find it easier to pull the lock because the lid is kind of hard to get off (that sounds super dirty sorry ::))

but if the theif didn't fit in the hole (again... sorry) I would also pull the lid. Not a safety or sanitation issue just being pragmatic!

Good on ya!  I tried pulling the airlock to take a sample but found it was more hassle than opening the lid.  Whatever works for ya!
