It does not need additional screws.
The two parts are joined pieces of filament 1.75mm. You can use a bit of glue, but this is usually not required.
You can change the height on both sides. Upwards such as glass on the bed. Or down, if you are using a different extruder.

Good, simple idea, but I printed this twice with different materials and everything is coming out too small for me. Screws won't fit, filament certainly isn't going to go through there. My other prints are pretty consistently sized.

Sorry, I don't have an ideas...
Filament can't going - its probable. But screws is not fit - its strange.
If your slicer have parameter "Horizontal size compensation" (Simplify3D it have), you can try it.

After a full day of tests, clogging/disassembling/reassembling the hot end, switching from PLA to PET-G (because I've been meaning to figure out settings that worked for it), and testing some more, I get the exact same results. Oh well.

BTW, using the filament to hold two pieces together is a great idea. Simple, cheap, and colors match. I hadn't seen that done before. If only there were a way to heat just that bit of filament to permanently bind them together. Cheers!

Sliced with Cura. Don't have Simplify3D. I'm spending time calibrating the printer and settings this morning (kids are gone!) with the assumption it's on my end. So far, my first tests are pretty consistent on exterior dimensions, but holes are a little small in my test print of 1/2" cube with 3 1/4" holes through it. (1/4" = 6.35mm but it's printing to be 5.75mm).
The larger element of your design comes out 12.09 x 23.96 x 3.35 (thin) x 4.32 (thick) - both basically the same, printed with 2 different PLA filaments. Holes are too small to measure with the calipers, but the slots are about 1.6mm wide.
It may just be the PLA running a bit, or something to do with wall thickness in my settings.
