Take nail polish or a permanent marker and make a mark on the side that should face up when you connect it to a USB port.

The side that is faced up is usually (almost always) marked with a sign that "pops out" a little so you can feel it. Like >this picture<, the one on top has that mark I'm talking about.

Yep, that's true for plastic contact housings.
