Question Replacing a 4 pin 2G11, Twin-Tube fluorescent lampholder

I have a burned out lamploader in my fluorescent lamp (4 pin 2G11 36 watt). In the existing lampholder there are 4 pairs of receptacles, one pair for each wire coming into the unit. There is also 1 jumper wire between pairs #3 and 4 as you can see in the picture. In the proposed replacement (Leviton 13455), there appears to be a limited number of receptacles for wire attachment (apparently, only 6 receptacles). How would I wire the replacement with no room for the jumper wire?

Any help would be appreciated.
Hopefully you can see both pics, the old one and the proposed replacement.

Welcome to the forums.

As I labelled your picture...... just make a splice in the yellow wire.
