Battery post question

So I ordered these AGM batteries and am having trouble figuring out what kind of terminal connectors to use. The round ones as pictured below will go onto these posts, but they really won't tighten because of the oblong shape of the posts. And notice the hole through the I supposed to be using some other sort of connector for these? I have several things to connect on a couple of these posts so a simple bolt through those holes doesn't seem like it will give me enough real estate...

Use the bolt through, but don't load them up with a bunch of terminals. Use a terminal block of some sort nearby. I'd love to post a link to some but I'd have to google them up, so you might as well do it, lol.

The limit is 4 terminals on one battery post or other similar bolt or post. Less than four is better. If I find a good photo I'll come back and add it on edit.

Well, here's what not to do; scroll down to 3rd item:

Use something like this:
