    be locked against

    Snow blower survivalist: the man (invariably a man) who cleans only his own driveway. If we still had bomb shelters, he would be locked against you. Don't even think of borrowing a cup of ice-melting salt from him.
    What does it mean to be locked against someone?

    In this case, it means someone who will not lift a finger to help another person.
