    If you have the right gasget for your tub, and it is tapered, the narrow end goes down and the thicker goes up.

    Default gasket

    You position the overflow fitting behind the tub and then rotate the gasket until it fills the entire opening, even if you have to twist the overflow fitting so it is not parallel to the tub face.
