how to split off wire

how would be the best way of taking a 12V+ 10Ga wire and splitting it off for 5 14-16ga wires?

im wiring in my selinods in my doors, trunk, and the reciver for the remote but theres no more room on the fuse box so i just ran a 10ga wire from the battery with a fuse to under my dash.

Binding post

Doc here:

I like to use the Single terminal binding post (like they use for fusible links and the battery wire) Big single terminal in an insulated mount with a bolt to attach your wires..I'm sure you have seen them...

Run your main feed wire to that and your branch circuits out from there.
