Quick disconnect for battery

I'm adding a "smart charger" to my old 1972 Sovereign.
The cable from the original converter/charger to my battery has a quick connect.
In order to keep that seperate from my new "smart charger", I want to make use of the quick connector.
Do any of you know where I can get another connector? See attached picture.

I have been looking for years for a replacement. I replaced my connections with auto and marine connections and cutoffs as needed. You will probably want to upgrace the wire size to #4 while you are at it if you plan on boondocking. More pics in the '78 Sovereign thread in my signature line.

McMaster Carr carries a line of disconnect plugs for battery connections. I have used the 50 amp disconnect plug for all the charger connections on my equipment including my TT with great success for many years. Go to McMaster.com and find battery charging cable connecters and look for north American style connectors. The 50 amp is the smallest size and is perfect for charging connections.

I was looking at same idea, found Minn Kota has a disconnect just like the ones used on electric lift trucks but sized for up to #6wire for their trolling motors.
