Notes:
• The Centers must start in a Mini-Wave. The Centers' part is an Arm Turn 1/4, not a Hinge. It is inappropriate for a caller to call Lockit when both Centers are facing the same direction.
• Think of Lockit as a 'short' Fan The Top (Centers turn only 1/4 instead of 3/4).
• From a Two-Faced Line, Lockit is identical to Couples Hinge.
• From a Tidal Wave, Tidal Two-Faced Line (As Couples Wave), or Point-to-Point Diamonds, Lockit is identical to Split Counter Rotate 1/4.
