These are close. On quick look it seems these are all female-female   
you need female-male ends.  Get one of these and crimp it on the cable.  
a regular old pliers will work if you careful, or us a vise.  Keep the 
cable as the shortest than you can.  looks like you can do it for under 
$5 plus shipping.


As to shielding, wrap some tinfoil around it connected to ground.

Also, is that 4 1/2 inches, or 4 1/2 feet?  shows up as 4 1/2²  or is 
that 20.25? :-).
