Default Terminal too small Help

Hey guys, I just had to replace my battery cable on the positive side and the terminal will not fit. I can get it about halfway on and then it wont budge from there. What can i do to solve this will i have to buy a different cable with a different terminal??

stretch that bitch out, then get the bolt back thru the clamp.

Positive terminal is larger, and you bought the cheapy terminals so you have to pry it open.
