Default trinity no solder leads

Does anyone know if I could find this type of connection for the motor tab anywhere like home depot or lowe.

I don't think your going to find anything Trinity at HD or Lowes.
Why don't you just direct solder to your motor?

I wasnt asking if I could find the whole lead at home depot, just the connector on the end that connects to the motor tab. Everytime I solder directly to the tab it ends up comming off. I guess im just doing something wrong.

Yep, you are. Try getting the motor tab hot first. Hot enough to hold shiny solder. Then get the wire hot and shiny solder-ful also. Then put the two together, and hold the soldering iron on top of the wire until the two meld together and burn your fingers holding the wire. Roll it back and forth just a little to help them meld together, then keep holding it until it stays.

If your still looking
Their called blade connectors can buy at Lowes, Radio Shack etc
I use the the Trinity connectors when I get a new motor and don't have time to solder they work fine. No problems

We need to start a charitable foundation to get EeePee a pair of hemostats or at least an old roach clip, LOL!

Seriously, using a wet rag or sponge or hemostats to hold the wire will make soldering more of a pleasure than torture.

Don't use stake on or spade terminals. Sharpen your soldering skills up until you get it to work. Current flows better through soldered wires than through terminal connections. Every splice you make up with connectors adds to the resistance in your circuit. Use them sparingly only if you must!!!
