Either blades, or receptacles from some other connector series that mate sufficiently well with the contacts of the unknown connectors.  It's a last resort, not very pretty, and wouldn't have the plastic shell to provide retaining force etc.  but you could track the surface mount pads for the contacts out to a 0.05" pitch or whatever for ribbon cable, or an IDC connector or whatever.

You could always 3D print some sort of shell.
