Where to find battery clamps?

We no longer have a Radio Shack! I have a 1950s Schwinn Hornet, 24" wheels, green Women's bike. I had to find a rocket shaped bike light to fit the era of the old Schwinn. I found one for 2 D batteries. So I replaced the bulb with an LED. The LED requires at least 6V to drive it. I want to use two 9V rectangular batteries and there is more than ample room in the body of the light. I need a supplier like Radio Shack used to be. I need two 9V holders and two snap on wiring caps. I will wire parallel to get the added amps of two batteries at the same voltage. Any companies that stock this stuff? I know there has to be people in the vacuum by The Shack's closing. TIA and Be Well, Bluesfrog.
