I found that 10 and 2 worked well because I was able to grab three coils on each side, keeping the compressor even and snug. When I tried them at 180 I actually found they had more tendancy to slip because of the uneven grab and compression. I should also mention I had one bolt head at the top and one at the bottom so the compressors were actually opposite of each other - due to their placement one of the bolt heads was too close to the top hat to turn so I flipped it over.
