Need a large Hermit crab shell, please help.

I have looked everywhere (searched google, contacted http://liveaquaria.com/ etc. with no luck) for a replacement shell for the common hermit crab in my aquarium.

He is rather large with a shell that is 4 inches long and with an opening of 2 inches wide and 1 inch high. Can you help me find something a little larger that will work?
