A line lock is an electronic device that allows your front and back brakes to lock independently of one another.
With a line lock, your front brakes can lock while your rear brakes remain open. This allows you to spin the back wheels without causing extra wear and tear on the rear brakes. This is useful for drivers who want to perform burnouts and other tricks in their vehicles.
Once installed, the line lock allows you to freeze one set of brakes while keeping the other open by flipping a switch. Line locks are usually aftermarket items, although some Ford Mustang models come with a line lock installed.
