I did buy some bannana plugs, but can't get them into the amps inputs, so just done it like this...

With the banana plug, there is usually a plastic cap/outer casing that you will need to unscrew off to get to the inside of the banana plug.
Depending on model, they will either have 1 or 2 small grub screws that you need to unscrew and push the cable in the open end, then re-tighten up the grub screw(s). Be carefull not too unscrew them too far otherwise they will fall out, and they are very easy to loose!
A guide here-
They may not have any grup screws, in which case you will need to solder them, like the Chord ones. Others like QED Airlocks are done at a dealer and use a pneumatic crimping tool, instead of solder/screws.
