Default Help needed to connect spotties with high beam

Hi all
I have a light bar fitted on the roof, which I connected using some off the shelf wiring harness that has a relay, fuse and connection to the high beam light (using a H11 type piggy back adapter).
Now I just picked up a set of spotties and another set of wiring harness (didn't want to use the same relay and need a separate switch). However because I have already connected to highbeam (left side) now I cannot connect the wiring for spotties to the same high beam. Any idea how can I make the connection?
I have some crazy ideas to order another set of H11 piggy back adaptor from Stedi and connect to the existing piggy back adapter, or cut the new wires to add to a splice on the existing high beam connection (before it connects to the adapter).
For records: This is the wiring kit I picked up:

You'll need another adaptor - that kit includes adaptors for H4 and HB3 only.

Connect inline on the left side or right side if you're worried about voltage drop.

Alternately use an add-a-fuse and connect in the fuse box.

Are your new Spotties LED?
If so, I wouldn't think there would be a problem connecting to the same relay as your light bar, those little square relays are usually 30amps.

Just my opinion

Wire in the new spotties separately with its own switch (as you mentioned youíd like) and for the trigger you could just splice into the existing trigger wire on the light barís harness.

Ie, connect to the same high beam. Itís not running power for the lights, just powering the relay to close. Low draw, two connections on it has been fine in my car for years.

Default done

I ended up copying the same setup as the light bar, connecting H11 high beam piggy back to the light bar piggy back (and then to the high beam), its own relay and own switch. Was nervous about chaining the piggy backs but ended up all working fine together.
