I leave my ecu box closed by unscrewed nowadays so i don't even need a screwdriver to remove the box and unplug the ecu. Takes me all of 3 minutes to reset the car's computer.
To each his own. I'm just relaying my findings. Cold solder joints don't require a lot of force to dislodge...

Either way, I wouldn't just leave your e-box unscrewed...it's pretty much a water proof box that you are leaving open...doesn't sound wise to me. But it's your car...
