I spent hours looking for tab type connectors and didn't find anything ideal, so I wouldn't waste your time with that. You can buy the integy screw ones, but for $1.50 I think, which seemed a bit expensive for me on top of all the other costs. If you find anything else let me know.

You could try tool clips that can be bought from a hardware store. Cut them in half and screw them into timber or something non conductive. I found they work really well and are cheap. They come in differant sizes.
