The rotated indication refers to orientation of the hexagonal connector. Next you will need a 20 millimeter M4 screw and nut. Join the tube clip with the first ring (ring_1.stl)
The second ring requires two 20 millimeter M4 screws and nuts. Slide the nuts on to the corresponding holes and using the screws attach the second ring (ring_2.stl) to the first (ring_1.stl), ensure that screw head rotates freely inside of its space
Ensure all rings rotate with minimal resistance. Sand them, reprint them, or try adding grease if needed.
