Secure 2" Extension Tube

My TEC140 and Moravian G2-8300 camera will not reach focus without the use of a 2" extension tube. I'd like to find something better than the usual tube with just a single set screw as I nearly had a fatal accident with the camera last night! Looking around I did find this at Moonlite:

Can I do better? Can I find it locally?

Thanks!!

Peter
