Bar end sliders/weights

Are the bar slider bolts threaded normal(right tight, left lose) or reverse?

Thanks much. I’ve not dealt with theses before so wasn’t sure how they worked. They seem awfully tight and I don’t wanna strip them. Ride safe.

They can be tight, turn the bar ends (by hand) and the bolt at the same time, this can help

Lol, I struggled with these too.
Gave up with the L shaped hex key.
Used a socket hex and had to wrap the bar ends with tape(they started to spin) and hold them with vice grips.
