Default Thermostat - Which way is up?

I feel stupid for asking this but.......I bought a stewart components thermostat and I'm not sure which way to install it (towards radiator)? If you look at the pic in the link below, do I install it just the way it is in the picture with the pointy side towards the radiator hose? The bottom or large round base in the picture has a stamp on it that says "Toward Radiator". This would mean I would have to turn it over from the way the picture shows.

Thanks for any help!

Clint

Yes, Point side up. They usually have an arrow on the side that shows the "flow" of the water.
