What 4-pin connector is this?

ST-XHP JST Connector Kit with 2.54mm Female Pin Header

The one side looks the same but the other has pins to connect to a PCB. I need ones that enables a crimped cable to be inserted on the male and female parts.

Can anyone please tell me what this is called? I've spent ages searching and everything I have looked at has those pins, even though clearly from the photo it is possible to get these types of connectors.

    You mean a Wire harness?

    Yeah I don't think there's really a unique name for it. The big honkin one is a 4 pin wire harness.

    It doesn't look like molex but I'd need to see all sides and what the inside of that harness looks like.

    something like this might point you in the right direction:

    Bowen I think is on to it as well - there are a ton across Amazon. So are you looking to insert a wire directly, or crimp it onto a pin and insert?

    There are a few different standards for wire harnesses. The one in the picture is a JST (japanese solderless terminal) XHP series 4-pin. But it would be odd to ask for what they're called if he already knows what they're called.
