I've done that! And yes, my neighbors definitely must think I'm nuts. :wink:

That process won't remove any mass, so the holes will probably close up pretty quickly. I know some file-to-a-razor-point purists would disdain this approach, but MikeTX's crampons look like they have done some "mixed" climbing already.

And of course, the points get caked with mud.

I use my old strap-on SMC crampons on my yard. It won't pull up any small divets but, by rocking back and forth when walking I get some good holes.

And more to the OP, the adjustment screw on mine hasn't budged in years and they were fully abused.

This attachment looks just like the attachment point of my old Charlet-Moser S-12s. I used the crap out of them and wore out 2 pairs. Never had the screw fall out or break.
