Default Outrigger Release Clips up or down?

Using blacks or tigress clips should the clip release up (tightening screw) on bottom or visa versa? I think clip down.
Stays open when loading the clip, and you only need to push up and close the clip with the palm of the same hand.

LOL my clips release 'inside' or 'outside'....and have always faced them so they release inward.So I'd rig them to release/open downward....

for outriggers the adjustment screw should be up or away from the boat like the kite but here is one way that works for me

Guess I deserved you being sarcastic, I just posted the pictures thinking it would help explain how they work to someone that really didn’t understand ,
