Why does Rohn (and presumably other tower manufacturers) spec the tower
bolts on their assembly drawings to be "inserted out (i.e. with nuts on
outside of tower face)" ?????

I have always put the nuts on the inside of the tower so that there is
less to snag myself on while climbing the tower.  It seems hard to believe
that that strength is affected by which side of the tower the bolt head
is on versus the nut!!!!
