Reading the quotes within the context of Lopatin's other comments, I think he is saying that it wasn't the case of a worker forcing a sensor into a configuration in which it couldn't be installed, or which would show up as installed incorrectly in a pre-flight test, but rather the case of the sensor being designed in such a way that that it could be oriented in more than one direction.

Hence the action going forward is not to change installation procedures, but to redesign the sensor so it can only be installed in the proper orientation.

(That's assuming the translation is accurate.)
