Why do locking tuners have Shorter Posts?

Locking tuners have shorter posts than standard/classic machine heads because of the string height.

Locking posts remove the need for windings around the post by “locking” the string at the stop of the string hole.

To maintain the same break-angle, the string hole on a locking tuner must sit lower.

Shorter posts simply mimic the height of the string as it would be on a standard post.
