What Philippe said (of course!). 

Two screws diagonally placed on the curved sides of the can will (in most cases) lock the endbell in place well enough and still allow for easy opening. For extra "bombproofing," four screws is even better for the terminally anal-retentive and is why it's the standard to this day... at least for motors people are supposed to be able to work on, and even some that they aren't!  :D
