Plumbing question

I need to tee into a 3" ABS sewer pipe. The line is buried, and I have dug a trench into where I am going to tie into the line with a tee. I went to Home Depot, and they have a "quick tee" which is a 3" rubber tee with three hose clamps.
I have been trying to run this tie in through in my mind using another method, like cutting out a piece of pipe, gluing a tee on the line and a small pup on the other end, and then a rubber sleeve to tie that back into the line. I know they have a tee that has a male and a female side, but that will take a sleeve to join it together, too. Any way I go, I will end up cutting a piece or two, and using a rubber connector, as I cannot raise the line to get the parts together. I see the 2" or so sleeve connectors, but inside, they have a ridge in the center that makes it look like it would have trouble sliding down the pipe until you got the ends just right, then slide it into position.
Is this rubber "quick tee" a good way to go? It sure would be the easiest. How long will that rubber last?

The Quik Tee is not appropriate for this app.
If you're adding a branch to the sewer, use a WYE or TEE-WYE, not a San TEE.
Glue 2 short stubs of ABS to the new WYE. Cut out the sewer line maybe 1/2 to 3/4" longer than the TEE with its stubs is; that will allow for the ridges.
Get (2) 3" No-Hub couplings. Yes, those are the ones with stainless band and a ridge inside the rubber sleeve. (OR, you can use (2) "Mission" couplings; these only have 2 hose clamps.)
Slide the rubber sleeves all the way over the stubs on the WYE. They *will* slide on; a little lube won't hurt. Lower the assy into place and slip the sleeves halfway back and tighten.
