Has anyone tried the 993 rear foglight conversion?

I noticed this on the Bergvil F/X site today: https://www.bergvillfx.com/index.php/products/t-light-hid-and-led/993-fog-light-conversion.html

Given that the 986 fog bulbs are 1156 (right??) this should work for us, shouldn't it?
Any issues w.r.t. proper amperage to run both sets of bulbs using a tap?

$90 seems steep for a couple harness & wire taps, but I'd spend more than $90 in T&M sourcing the parts and building this myself.

I'm running a tire trailer that has two LED brake lights/turning lights, and also LED running lights, and running it successfully using taps off the brake, turn signal, and rear running lights. I did blow a fuse once when the trailer had incandescent bulbs, but it has not happened since I switched the trailer over to LED. So I think you would be safe to run two extra LEDs off the current brake lights.

I'm using these taps:

As the clamp on blade style taps that came with my trailer harness adapter were junk and didn't work, maybe due to improper installation, but moving forward with other wiring projects I am sticking with this style of tap.
