  6. Using a socket wrench to hold the nuts, unscrew the two tank bolts with a screwdriver. When reattaching the tank, tighten the bolts with a screwdriver, rather than tightening the nuts. Alternately tighten each bolt in increments, until the tank fits snugly against the toilet. Avoid over-tightening the tank bolts. Too much force can easily crack the toilet tank or toilet bowl.

Step 5: Clockwise or counter-clockwise depends upon whether you are looking down at the coupling nut from above or up at it from below.

I suspect that, unless it has a left-handed thread, most people would turn it in the direction that works.

Close your eyes. Attaching something, the turning motion is (usually) clockwise: Righty-tighty; lefty-loosey.
