So, even if these are not rotary, do they still allow you enough room to twist the nozzle to point where you want without leaking?
I guess my real question isHow much room do I have for adjusting nozzle position that will retain a secure lock?

You can alter the result of the draw to be more in your favor and almost guarantee winning by having a selection of O'Rings on hand.
With a selection of different thickness and hardness combinations, you can always get a non-rotary fitting to face the way you need it to My favored size is 11.5 x 2
ID (mm) x CS (mm): 11 x 2 (bit tight), 11.5 x 2 (perfect) & 12 x 2 (bit loose) are all usable.
Shore a Hardness 40 through 70 are all usable
I prefer Shore 60a over the 70a, but 11.5 x 2 size is harder to find in 60a hardness.
Shore 20A = Rubber Band
Shore 40A = Pencil Eraser
Shore 60A = Car Tire Tread
Shore 70A* = Running Shoe Sole
Shore 80A = Leather Belt
Shore 100A = Shopping Cart Wheel
