That'd be very difficult to do, or impossible for the 1/2" barbs. If you're looking for a tight/secure fit look at compression fittings, or use 7/16 ID tubing on 1/2 barbs.

Or just use 3/8" tubing on 3/8" barbs (or 1/4" tubing on 1/4" barbs_ like it was designed too. I don't think stretching tubing makes it anymore secure.

That size would kink very easy. Dazmode has regular 1/2 ID 3/4 OD or 7/16 ID 5/8 OD though.
