I think the perfect o-ring to replace the one on the clone lamp would be 1-9/16ths OD and 1/16th thick, or 39mm OD and 1.5mm thick. o-rings are often sold by their ID, so that would be 1-7/16" or 36mm.

your mileage may vary. the spreader lens looks awesome in my livingroom, the beam is nice and wide now.
I picked up that spreader, so I'll keep an eye out for the right o-ring. My light is still somewhere in China.

Thanks for doing the legwork.
