DIY External Power Cable for 500FTZ

Hello ALL,
Any suggestion for the plug into two pronges of the power flash?
I tried to avoid the soldering a hardwire to the pronges but rather to build a connector to the flash.

Any suggestion is much appreciated.

I don`t have that flash so not familiar with it. Is there a place where you could maybe mount one of these on it.
