    The short side with the stripe is negative. The stripe probably has a minus (-) on it...

    The side with the black strip on it is the negative (you can tell by the litle - - - things)

    So the positive is the opposite side, oh and the legs can be bent you will prob wanna cut them down too..

    What is the Cap for??

    **EDIT** (We must have been typing the same time Jimbonzzz)
