male-male connectors

I have Mindstorms 2.0 and am trying to build security vault as a challenge project. It appears to require a piece that has males on both
sides, or perhaps a small connector piece that converts a female to a male. Does such a piece exist in the base kit? Are all the challenges buildable using the base kit parts, or do you need accessory kits?
