BJB solderless LED star connector compatibility

Hello,
I'm working on a DIY led build. I decided to solder the LED stars myself but up to now I'm really strugling with it and I don't know if I can complete this build or not.
Now I'm considering using these solderless connectors because that would make things really easy. It's just that I don't know if they will fit (without major modification). If I just have to make the center hole a big better, then that's no problem at all.

I'm using the cheap china LEDs: http://www.snowdragonledhk.com/image..._m757218ca.jpg
and want to use these connectors: https://www.google.be/search?q=bjb+....=1920&bih=955#

Will it fit or not? Again, if I have make the center hole a litle bit bigger, that's no problem

Hi, the link for the connectors doesn't work but its best if you do solder them, you can have lots of problems with connectors later. Soldering can be frustrating if you haven't done it before, make sure you tin your wires first and the connections on the stars then solder your wires to them. Make sure you soldering tip is always clean.

Here's a video showing how you should prepare you wire before soldering it, hopefully it helps.
