Default Antek with four outputs - Only need two

I bought an Antek 8412 800VA 12vx4 transfromer. I need high output 2x12V. John at Antek said to just run the outputs in parallel. I'd think there would be a phase issue doing this without a scope. Is it OK to just tie two outputs together?

Just tied them together and read the voltage output. If it read zero then reverse the wires. If they read zero means they are out of phase.

Thanks. I spoke to John at Antek. He says I can tie the first and last two pairs to get the output desired. I'm away, but I'll try it as soon as I return.
