DISC damper question

So, I am always frustrated when I try to switch springs or clean or resand my disc damper. It is always a hassle. The post always unscrews from the bottom instead of the top when I try to loosen the top screw. I wish it was reverse threaded on the bottom so it wouldn't come loose when you unscrew the top screw. I always have to grab the lower flange with a pair of needle nose pliers to get the top screw out. Although the flange is not part of the sliding surface, it still gets all marked up. Does anyone have a better trick to deal with this issue?

I realize it is not really a big deal, but on the other hand some of you have a lot more skill and experience than I do. Thanks for the help!

thread lock on the post screw can be your friend here. I only use the weakest purple version, have experienced mighty lock ups even with the blue.

That is why I avoided it, but I should try some purple.

I use blue for the lower screw and purple for the top. I almost never remove the lower screw unless I am changing the post so I prefer it being stuck in place until I need to remove it.
