IMHO it's stronger than the electrical connection, but for me it boiled down to being pretty damn cheap and easy to get the tool and materials.
Those two screws put some serious pressure on the cables. Certainly worked to save the gear lever on my Scram.
AND, of course, it's easy to remove when you need to take off the lever.
