Even then you're taking your life into your hands. Fuses only retain their timing for a relatively short period - you can't stick them on the shelf after fitting the new fuse and expect them to still be the same a few months later. Humidity, etc works it's magic and effects the burn time, potentially even preventing detonation in some cases.
Unless you're using the grenades immediately, or at least in the next couple of days, you're better off treating them very cautiously in my opinion, and not risk taking off your hand.

Factory fuses may vary in delay, but at least they're almost guaranteed to work.
