Gentlmen: The brake holder isn't in backwards. It's either a right rear or a left front. They come in opposite pairs, so that the stop is at the front of the travel direction seating the block into the stop. Sometimes if a mechanic is ultra cautious, he will squeeze the open end just a whisker to hold the block in case of back up movement on a looser fitting
