Wink Orientation of spring wraps (clips)

I'll be replacing all of my running gear, springs, axles, brakes, equalizers, etc on my Excel. The new 7k Dexter springs came with one wrap or clip on each spring. My question is does this wrap (clip) face towards the front or rear of the trailer?

I took a look at Dexter site and this is how they show different axle / spring set ups.

Thanks for that find. They show the wrap towards the hanger bracket and away from the equalizer, for front and rear springs.

I looked under mine and that is the exact same way as that.
