The larger the hole, the faster the air comes out so the steam gets into the radiator. The steam is pushing the air out. The largest hole could do better on the largest radiator.
You fixed your heat problem by moving the thermostat lever (anticipator.)
In all you did no harm that will also harm the boiler.
Look around for a piece of plastic getting melted on a radiator. Steam is at 212F and plastic will deform and some melt at 140F, so plastic shouldn't be near the radiator.
