changing smartfasteners direction

Hi Guys -

 

I've got a design that I'm using smart fasteners in the assembly.  Is there anyway to change the direction or orientation of the fasteners?  Smartfasteners is putting the head of the bolt on the opposite side of where I want it.

 

when I created the holes using the hole wizard, I used a bottom surface, which coincidently is where the head of the bolt was put.  So I changed my sketch plane to the top surface of my part (its a piece of angle iron) thinking smartfasteners was using the sketch plane to determing where the head of the bolt was going.  I rebuilt my assembly, but the fasteners didn't update.

 

Any help is appreciated.  thanks

 

Joe
