Default Tilia vacuum sealer hose question

I bought some Tilia Vacuum sealed containers at a garage
sale. The vacuum connection is different from all the
Foodsaver hoses that I have. The standard Foodsaver
hose end will fit in the hole, but there's no seal around
it, so no vacuum gets in ;-)

You have to push down on the red center and seal
around it.
I managed to get it to work with an O-ring and a brass
fitting, but it's fiddly and I'll surely lose the loose parts
before I need them.

I've google searched Tilia and Foodsaver images, but not
found any pictures of the hose end.

Before I start trying to remember where I put the lathe tools
to make one,
it would be nice to see what a real one looks like.

I thought about using a suction cup, but it would have
to be quite flexible. Don't know how to drill a hole
in soft material
that will be clean enough to seal around the hose.

Anybody got a picture or a verbal description of these
vacuum connections?

Thanks, mike

Thanks, but if you'd read the part you snipped,
you'd have known that the video shows the vacuum
interface that's different from the one I pictured.
Hence the question...

Have you tried wrapping a little tape around the tube to make it bigger.

Yes, I wrapped a little tape around the tube and it made it bigger.
Now what?
I'm not asking for kludges, I'm asking if anybody knows what the REAL
adapter made by Tila looks like.
The container link got snipped.
This is what it has to mate with:

The older ones with the white knob and red center (marked: open, vacuum, closed) have to be sealed with the large mason type jar sealer. It fits over the center of the container...attach the vacuum hose, seal, remove hose and jar adapter, turn center knob to closed.
