Default 4 Lights In Parallel Question

Afternoon everyone, so I've got a question regarding wiring some offroad lights to my roof rack. I'd like to wire four lights to a single switch. I found this wiring diagram below:

My question is this, what is the best way to wire the lights in parallel? I understand how the circuit works in theory, however how do I translate that into reality? How do I branch four wires of the positive like shown in the diagram ie. what technique/tool do I use to achieve that type of connection?

Thanks for any input!

Run a main and use t-taps for each individual light. Just make sure the gauge of wire you use is sufficient.

Otherwise solder and heat shrink tubing.
