I just ordered a 24v 3w Parker solenoid and the picture they have shows a bit of a squarish part that may be some sort of connector but they cut it off so I can't make it out. Do I need some sort of wire connection thing? DO I just cut that off and use regular connectors? Any help will be appreciated.

Might you be referring to spade terminal (crimp) connectors?

They are an easy way of attaching a power cord to the solenoid, though you could always skip them and directly solder the wires to the terminals.

If you choose to use them, just make sure that the wires are crimped properly, and you should be fine.
