Definitions for "Lockup"
Keywords:  skid, verge, traction, tires, braking
The moment when a tire begins to skid during braking. A tire's maximum braking force occurs when it is on the verge of lockup. Ideally all four tires should approach lockup simultaneously to give a vehicle the best braking. Because this ideal is hard to create in the real world, one end tends to lock up before the other.
The juncture at which a tire starts to skid during braking. A tire's maximum braking force is developed when it is on the verge of lockup, so a car's shortest stopping distances are produced when its front and rear tires approach lockup simultaneously. This is very hard to achieve under varying conditions of load and traction, so one end typically locks up before the other. Front-wheel lockup is inherently more stable than rear-wheel lockup.
The point at which braking power overcomes the traction of the vehicle's tires and skidding occurs, causing loss of control, long stopping distances, and flat-spotting of the tires.

An agreement by stockholders not to sell their shares of stock for a specified period of time. Underwriters often require officers, directors, and principal stockholders of a company to agree to lockup all, or a portion of, their shares for a designated period after the public offering. Selling Stockholders may also be required to lockup their shares for an agreed upon period. A lockup may be absolute (i.e., for a specified period of time with no exceptions) or subject to the underwriter's discretion. When it is subject to the underwriter's discretion, the lockup may be released by the underwriter earlier than the agreed upon expiration date
