Revit to use modified families automatically

I have modified the OOTB square to round fitting by simply deleting the flange from the round end, as it is not required. Question is, how do I get Revit to automatically use this modified fitting instead of the original one, so that I don't have to manually exchange fittings after they have been automatically drawn.

The default fittings to be used are defined under Type Properties for each Duct Type. This applies to Pipe, Conduit, and Cable Tray as well.
