Correct way to install front pads with wear indicators?

Trying to figure out these new Wagner front pads and the correct way of installing the inner pads. Don't know if the indicator is installed down or up?

Any help?

Here's a pic of the indicator down. Passenger side, K5 blazer.

Or it could go in the upward orientation. Trailing the pad....

You want them to drag away from the rivet and pad.
