Sorry, it looks like the clip goes on only one way. I write about this in my cooler reviews...you should have picked a different model. Proper orientation is supported by the Scythe Mugen 2, Sunbeamtech Core Contact Freezer, Thermaltake Frio, Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme, and several others...basically you can usually figure it out by looking at the photos of the cooler and its mounting hardware.
