Spinnaker Pole Jaws

Can anyone tell me the correct position of the spinnaker pole jaws in relation to the top of the pole? Do the jaws open up or down? Thanks (FS2101, Sayville, NY)

Mine is set up to open down. It might be more easily accessible to have them open down so that you don't have to lift the guy out of the open jaw. dave boling Huntsville, AL FS3431

Ron stole Meggie's heart away
And I got Sidney's leg.
