Incorrect Orientation of Strainer Basket

Incorrect Orientation of Strainer Basket

My one and only complaint about this strainer is that the strainer basket can be inserted incorrectly.

In this orientation the handle of the strainer basket blocks and catches any weeds coming through the hose. Leaving it this way could cause a back up in the elbow or inlet instead of letting the weeds pass to the strainer basket as designed.

If you look closely you can see how the inlet hole is blocked by the handle. This is a no, no..
