I think it took me 20 years to finally remember which one is a “nut” and which one is a “bolt”. I guess it never really mattered because I was always using them together. They both had the same shape and could be turned with the same tool. Anyhow, one day I suddenly realized that I had always known what a “wing nut” was and therefore could now remember which one is a “nut” and which one is a “bolt”.
