Wild Rose,

I just replaced all 4 terminals with eyelets. My cables are a #6 so I found #6 crimp eyelet ends, they can be insulated or w/o but the ones I found at hardware store on had a 1/4" hole, battery is 5/16". Got my drill and took care of that issue. I have a pair of Klein lineman pilers that will crimp the connection if you use it w/o insulation. Then I used heat shrink tubing and maintained the terminal covers for safety. The disconnects are also available thru Grainger, they are the small version of what is commonly used on lift truck battery connections, select by wire size and I think crimping required. I've considered them also. The square lug I think is a lug used in house wiring.

Good luck,

If all you need is a new terminal, you can get a high-quality solder pot terminal from any good auto parts place or Del City or any number of other places. They have solder slugs you put in the pot on the terminal, heat with a torch, and push the wire into the pot. I've found them to be extremely reliable.
