What is that called? The thing that allows two wires to easily connect/disconnect. Also, can you get these for just one wire? The one in the picture has a 4 connector one.

Molex 70553 (aka MPC connector).

I was trying to find out what those are called so I can find them. Thanks.

They show up a lot used in those Asian E-bay shield boards called sensor shields to be attached to their various 'sensor modules'.

The Asians seem to call them 'buckle connectors' and they seem to come in 3 and 4 pin versions.

The Seeduino folks seem to sell a variety of them:

Knowing what Asians like to call them is a good thing to know, I order most of my supplies from China via Ebay.
