dorman replacement socket

I have a low beam that needs a new socket. I got a dorman 84783 and it only has two wires coming out of it and my factory one has three? Can somebody show me a picture or tell me how to wore this in? I'm pretty confused?

For the low beam there are 3 wires, but 2 colors. Yellow and Black.
Yellow is the power to the light,
The two blacks are a ground, One black goes to the high beam, the other black goes to the chassis ground. It just piggy-backs the ground for the high beam

So you'd connect one wire to Yellow
and the other wire to both Black wires.
