Re: manual line locks??

Be carefull though. I am sure you read this in the old posts, but it is worth repeating. The electrical solinoids are designed for very short-term holding, more momentary than anything. I have heard the personal accounts of people using them locked for an extended amount of time fine, and others which burn out real quick. I wouldn't trust my Jeep to be held in place where a burned out solinoid, or a sudden loss of power could set my Jeep a 'rolling. I am sure you would have no problems with cutting, just be leery of using them for an e-brake.
