During my last 45G install, I decided to do it ALL "by the book",
including orienting the bolts like they say in the "book".

The first section joint had the bolts "out".  After getting gouged
several times before the next section was even up, I said "the he** with
THIS" and went back to the more typical practice of "nuts in".

I doubt there is much of a diff on tubular leg towers and keeping all
your skin when climbing is a plus...
