Just as a FYI, i am pretty sure 3/8ths hose fits over the tube part inside of the 3 piece air lock that you have...
That is, assuming you were looking for large tubing to fill in the entire airlock space.

All of us pretty much should have extra lengths of 3/8ths laying around.
Might be worth a try.

I always use that style blow off tube. It works perfectly and never had any clogs. It does get nasty pretty quick though.

Primary 1: Flying Carpet Pale Ale
Primary 2: None
Secondary: None
Keg1: Widmer Bro's O'Ryely IPA clone
Keg2: Granada IIPA (AKA: "Hop Soup")
On Deck: More IPAs of course...
