Alarm Panel Programming

I'll start off with a tl;dr for those who don't feel like reading.
What I need: USB to 3 alligator clips for a serial connection to alarm panel for programming
Picture: http://www.argina.com/img/40d6a02a561c/max/1000/max/1000/product.jpg KP DATA (green), KP COM (black), and KP POS (red) are the terminals I need to attach alligator clips to.
I am needing to program an NX-8 alarm panel and need to do it via a serial connection to my PC. I have the software installed on my laptop already, but am looking for advice on making a USB-to-serial adapter.
I did a few Google searched but didn't find any good results. I looked at USB to Serial pin-out diagrams but couldn't find a clear one to which I could trust a connection to a $2,000+ alarm system.
I'll be more than glad to answer any questions. I know how to solder and heatshrink, so that's no problem.
Thanks in advance!

Hello you lovely industrious folks.
I have a cool water bottle with a wide mouth, a cap with a rubber straw, and a screw-on bottom that holds snacks.
I like it a lot, but it was cheap and is not very water-tight. It has a big domed screw-on cap, kinda like pic, and is of a similar quality or a little better. If I shake it a lot (basically any time I walk fast or run) water will crawl into the seal and drip out every once in a while.
I was thinking a little food wax in there would help, but I don't know. What do you guys think?
