Default Blow Off Tube for 6 Gal Better Bottle?

Is there a good cap somewhere for a blowoff tube for a better bottle?

I asked More beer and my LHBS and neither had a decent solution for that.

I just use my bung and put a 3/8 hose into the airlock hole. It works great!

I don't use caps, I just use a PVC hose 1" ID X 1¼" OD. It fits in snugly,

Northern brewer sells one with bung for 6.99, but I don't know how to link internet stuff. Its under brewing equipment/fermenting.

You copy the URL from your browser when you are viewing the item you want to share, then above the posting text box thre is a small icon of a globe with a link right below the smiley face icon. Click it, paste the URL hit enter... DUN

Edit:
Apparently the globe with a link is only below the smiley for a full/advanced post, otherwise its between the "A" with the black line under it and the little icon of a mountain. If you mouse over the globe icon with a chain, it will say: "Insert Link"

Reason: fix for quick reply

Thanks for trying to help, but I'm a computer Troglodyte. I'm not even sure what a URL is, or what kind of browser I have......My 12 year old helps me when I'm stuck.

I use the base of an airlock and put the hose over the inner core.
