Can you convert a banana jack to a spade lug?

Hello! I have a set of speaker cable that are factory terminated with banana jacks. My current setup requires spade lugs to bind them to the amp. Is there a way to convert the banana to spades, without removing the factory banana terminations? Thanks for your help!

Add wires with spades to this, or similar:

There is a nice thing out there somewhere (maybe somebody will say where) that is made to covert barrier strips to 5-way posts.

I also sent you a PM with an inexpensive adapter, but it was from E-bay and don't want to have this thread moved because of it.
Rock out with your Bach out!
