    Filing them makes them the size they need to be. Then you get the benefit of the security. No tumbler= no security
    Further to that the heel of the tumbler locks the barrel in the off position.

    How does a tumbler that has been filed down give you any security?

    If the wrong key is inserted it won't sit flush.

    There are many more wrong keys than the one that was matched/filed.

    Filing a #3 will give you a #2 or further a #1

    Isn't it the case that a tumbler has one correct position and two incorrect ones and filing negates at least one incorrect position?

    But you still have better security than no tumbler at all.
