I never noticed that they were conical.
I would put the wider side down to distribute the load over a wider area.

I put the concave side up l\ /l on the wild notion that the bolt head would seat into it better. :dunno: And the curved part would settle into the hole. :confused:

I put the concave side up for the same reason that Chris stated..

Leave it to the guru (Grumpy) to state the obvious - look to see if it worked the other way :)
