They are often referred to as quick disconnects.
you crimp them onto the end of a wire (usually). Or solder them on.
They are available in 3/16" and 1/4"
McMaster Carr has them in a variety of insulated barrel, fully insulated, etc.

Hey DanV!

Thank you (again) for being on top of things!

I actually have a nice assortment (something like this). I wasn't aware that these are called Quick Disconnects in English. In Dutch we often refer to them as AMPs, possibly because they are produced by AMP.

I was aware that these will work, but I was hoping to find the exact boxy model like that are used in the picture. Sucker for trying to stay close to the original I suppose ;)

In Dutch they are called "schuifstekkers" often used in cars. The exact model can be found at https://www.lpgonderdelenshop.nl/Stekke ... ijk-1-pins. or I expect in any good carparts shop
