The locking mechanism secures the string, eliminating the need to wind the string multiple times around the post. This saves time when stringing and, most importantly, reduces tuning problems.

How to use the Gotoh Magnum lockable tuning machine

The video clearly shows the use of the Magnum machine. In short, the string locks itself by turning the tuning machine. The Magnum mechanism first closes the string when turning, and then it can rotate the string post, i.e., tune the string. Conversely, when releasing the string tension, it unlocks. If the string is broken, this does not work, and you may need to use, for example, a coin.
