I pretty much use the same exact setup and it works like a champ.

Agreed with the pitching rates & blow off tube suggestions. I made mine out of a tube I had lying around that fit perfectly on the inner stem of the 3 piece airlock.

It worked like a charm. I will definitely use again in the future

I brewed a Batch of HG Strong Belgian Strong Ale yesterday and woke up this morning with a clogged airlock but no explosion ! Installed a blowoff tube. My question is did the pressure overnight harm the yeast ? It's running out of the blowoff tubes like gangbusters now.

You answered your own question. Your yeast are quite happy and munching away on sugars so much they're churning enough to blow out the tube.
