bypassing the Pi4 to provide 5v for HDD's

Just reading the power requirements for the Pi4 shows typical power consumption at 800ma. 2 2.5" HDDs would require 700ma each but the Pi4 spec says it will only pass 1.2A through the USB ports. If a small power interface was made with power through to the Pi and 2 USB power (only) sockets made...

It was posted on VERA smarter home control forums and my question(s) is 1) Does anyone know how to utilise this on the Raspberry Pi?
