Is there really a difference in the Twist Ties for switches between left hand or right hand? :?

I thought I had seen in earlier videos that you can just turn over a right hand to use as left hand.

Web site says you have to select either left or right now!! :o

Hello Kurt,

You're thinking about QuickSticks that can be turned over and used for either left-hand or right-hand turnouts. However, TwistTies are different because the laser can only print or etch the rail traces on one side. If you turn them over you won't have rail traces to follow when spiking the rails in place.
