Good luck :wink: I tired to find one here on Vancouver Island and couldnt. I just cut that weird end off, and went to a hardware store and bought new male and female ends ( like for heavy duty extention cords). Attached one end to the light and one end to the ballast... presto new quick dissconects!

doesnt that void the warranty for cutting the cord?

I have a female end off a mh 250 watt ballast, both are flat prong and a round ground, if needed, contact, free. I do not need it as i am stripping the parts off to repair existing ballast.
