Quick release connections

Evening all

My new ICOM 411 arrived today and I'll be hanging it on the bracket on the rear of the consol. However the connectors on the back of the radio don't match in any way or form the connectors on the boat so will have to be changed.

I'm guessing that the previous owners had their radio set up for quick release / removal. The same as I need.

Is there a set of release connectors that I can add to the back of the vhf to aid easy removal ? I have power, external speaker and ariel.

Many thanks

Put a simple plug on the earth and then all you have to do is Unplug the earth, unscrew the fuse holder for the live and un screw the aerial.
