I might be wrong but I think they only go in one way because the "teeth" inside the ball will dig in the antenna element if you try to pull it.
That way, it stays permanent so you'll probably have to break it to remove it.

that sucks................I think I have some new ones somewhere but I really want to put my antenna tie down on!!!! In vietnam, they did not have the handy clip to hold the antenna. Instead they used a .50 cal link and slid it down as far as it would go and tied the rope to the other loop.
