QHY Small Screw Adapter 020063 - wrong orientation of relief feature

buzz

I notice on this small adaptor there is a relief on the back-side to go over the glue on the camera. This is in the wrong position- when you attach to the filterwheel, the camera has to be at an angle, rather than aligned with wheel (and OAG).  The relief needs to be 90 degrees round.
It is difficult to describe in words but you have four holes that attach to the camera and 6 holes that attach to the filter wheel. It is their relationship that requires the relief feature to be rotated 90 degrees round for the camera to mount with the long axis nearest the filterwheel center and that allows the OAG to be opposite from the motor mechanism.

Is it the same problem as in https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/709989-qhyccd-and-their-insane-oag/ ?
I think so - you can obviously orientate the adaptor in 4 ways but because there are 6 holes, one two ways orientate the OAG correctly and one way that puts the relief in the right position on the camera.
