So I finally have the crimp connectors I wanted but now the big question:

how do I properly attach wire to them?
As the end of the connector is hard plastic I don`t think heating that part up hoping it will shrink and hold my wire will be the answer I`m looking for...

Do they need a little solder or wil just pulling the wire through and winding it round the flat part once do?

I tried the last but it just looks a bit like sh1t actually....

any ideas or experiences to share?

Thanks!!

You need a crimping tool, something like this:

That works with the hard plastic end properly?

Doesn`t it crack or damage the plastic?

Can`t imagine it as I never used one of those before but I`m just strangly amazed by the fact that a tool like that could have a nice effect on these connectors hehehhe :)
