    It only goes on 1 way. From what I recall the tab further to you in the piture goes into a pin on the bock. the spring attachs to the other tab and to the post on the block. The thing is really designed so that it cannot be installed incorrectly.

    Like he said only 1 way. I mean you would have to force it on the wrong way i by that i mean drilling out the spring hole big enough to fit the block post.
