Default Tesla disconnect requirements - load sharing

I am installing 2 tesla wall connectors in a 2 car garage. one will be on one end and the other on the opposite side, 25ft or so apart.
I will be wiring them to do load sharing on a 100 amp breaker. I have to add a jbox to split the circuit to feed each wall connector and run a communication cable to link them.
Do I need a 100 amp disconnect adjacent to each tesla wall connector or is one disconnect enough to meet code?

The code states it must be visible and lockable in the open position.

As long as you can see it from both, you should be good to go.

Might be worth trying to find a disconnect that has double lugs instead of a disconnect and junction box.
