Not the same sort of connector, but probably more generally useful are
things like

It's a plug that's connected to the service vehicle's battery, and a
set of cables.  At one end is a standard set of jumper cable leads; at
the other a plug to fit the socket on the service vehicle.  If you've
got a reason to, you can get or make up cables with a plug at both
ends.  They're widely used in the towing and road service industries. 
There are a couple different common plug formats.  Make sure you get
compatable ones.
