Rohn products aren't designed that way.
As you stack the sections the upper one goes over the lower one.
If you aren't doing it that way you are installing them upside down.
Just wait till the project calls for a top section or flat plate.  You get to 
the top and it won't fit.

Something has been bothering me for a while. With all the discussion and 
problems with tower leg corrosion, filling with water and splitting, etc. Why 
almost ALL the manufacturers design the joints to telescope inside from above 
which leaves water able to run inside joints and fill tubes? Why not simply 
invert the connection by telescoping over the bottom section so water just runs 
outside not through the joint. I know there is no difference in joint strength 
or assembly difficulty, so why?
