Question Fiamm air horn plus regular horn

I have a Fiamm air horn in my 71 442. I would like to also add the 2 original type electric horns that each have a single spade connection.
There is a square shaped relay numbered 87 and 87a North-South (Top- bottom) of the relay. Top 87goes to the Fiamm compressor. Bottom ( South) is hooked to the green wire running into the wiring harness.
West--East ( Left- right) of the relay is numbered 86 and 85 respectively.86 (West-Left) goes to a common ground.
85 (Right-East) is hooked up to a double green wire that goes into the harness.
Question.......................................... ...how do I make the other 2 electric stock type horns work with this setup in the most expedient way?
Thanks in Advance

Fiam air horn is a single air horn with relay #87 single wire. Should I add two wires to this each going to a separate horns?
Thanks

These relays generally have 1/4" spade lug connectors.

You can get spade lug adapters from places like Radio Shack that turn one lug into two, so you can plug in two wires.
There are also some relays with two #87 terminals.
