Hello Jason. Welcome to my Gas Appliances topic and the Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

All flexible connectors, shut off valves and adaptors (if these parts are what you are referring to) are standard threads. Which means they thread on turning right (clockwise) to connect and left (counter clockwise) to remove. If clockwise is forward, than yes, connection is forward.
