    I have to order some barrier blocks and ring connectors. How can I be sure the ring connectors will fit the screws and the space available on the barrier block?

    From the specification sheet that applies to the barrier block....

    The manufacturers site will reveal all.

    They're rated by 'stud' size.
    The screw in the barrier strip will be size '6' or '8', or whatever.
    You just need to use kellys-eye's advice and find-out the barrier strip screw (or 'stud' size), and then
    buy ring-tongue lugs that are the same size.
    Since you're asking - be SURE you buy ring-tongue lugs of the correct stud size, that ACCEPT THE AWG WIRE-SIZE that you'll be terminating the ring-tongue lugs with. The AWG wire size will be noted on each of the correct size ring tongue lugs available.
    Good luck with the project.

    First you need to state the wire size in order to select the correct ring connector for that gauge, next, if you have the terminals already selected, then choose a ring dia to suit.They come 3 or 4 diameter per device.
    IOW there are two dimensions, wire gauge and terminal screw diameter in order to select the crimp terminal required.
