Hard top defroster connector?

I have a hard top on my 05 LJ that I assume is original. The wire on one side of the rear defroster is broken off right above the plastic connector clip that connects to the glass. The plastic connector is still on the metal tab which is still attached to the glass, so that is not the issue. I need a new plastic connector.

My question is - What is that connector called? Bonus points for a part number or a link! I have searched for it several different ways and only find other defroster related issues, mostly tabs breaking off the glass or complete wiring harnesses.

I couldn't find just the connector either on a quick google machine search.

But did find this. Universal clip & tab.

Thanks. Somehow I didn't come across this on my own.

I had the same thought as a backup. I was wondering how well it would stay on.

It stays on perfectly because it is the correct connector.....

The one in the link is a female spade with a cosmetic plastic cover
