i did some research ... found these ...

they have some neat solutions if you look under references here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JST_connector

That's not them. I have those JST connectors for a couple of my smaller RC models but they're different size and shape and they don't have the little clampover bits.


Edit: Having looked at all the references at the bottom of the Wiki page it looks like they might be JST-SM connectors (As opposed to JST-RCY which are the ones sfleck linked and I have on my RC models). Does anyone have any of these to crimp wires to? Unless I buy 10+ they only come with wires already attached and as it's not for lighting that I need them I only need 1.

JST is a brand, not a specific shaped connector.

In other news, I have no idea what type those connectors are. :D

I think what they are called is "rubbish" and unsuitable for actually using in your display. I'm reasonably certain that most people who have had these on their strips chop them off and replace them with waterproof connectors like the "Ray Wu" connectors.

Agree on using the waterproof ones instead for lighting, these are actually for a stepper motor cable that my CNC was missing so I need to make one up, hence the need for only 1.

Depending on whether they are 0.1" or 0.156" inch spacing you could probably find a connector that would match from Element 14 or Radio Spares. Even Jaycar or Altronics mit have a header connector you could adapt.
