CJ7 Grill Turn Signal TABS?

I have these metal tabs with holes that stick out on the inside of the grill just above the turn signals. Does anybody have these and know what they are exactly for?

It looks as if the bulb shaft should slide into it if I bend it more or maybe where the harness wires are supposed to run through to keep them organized.

Also, do the turn signals mount with the bulb shaft up or down? Right now the bulb shaft is pointing down so maybe if up, the TABS make sense. I don't know.

Anyone?

Dunno about the tabs, but I put mine so the sockets were pointing up out the back. I figured this would help allow water to run out if it leaked in. My sockets were rusty from water leaking or condensation.

Hmmm, that makes sense.

If they are up, it looks as if the tabs will bent to wrap around the rubber grommet at the end of the shaft as well.

Got a picture?
All I can visualize of the hood prop right now but there is only 1 of those.

Of course there is a funny notch cut into the TS opening I was never quite sure it was about.
