Piano,
Here's the solution I came up with for my Vacurect pump, whose rings weren't practical for me. These rings stretch to the 2 inch diameter fine, with or without the applicator device. I usually just put the next to smallest ring on by hand. The applicator cone makes it easier to apply if you don't have good hand strength.

This probably would be a better solution that sex shop rings. They also have the kit with just the rings, for about 6 bucks less...
