When using the Mechanical APDL solver, Stops and Locks are active only when Large Deflection is set to On (under Analysis Settings). This is because Stops and Locks make sense only in the context of finite deformation/rotation. If Large Deflection is Off, all calculations are carried out in the original configuration and the configuration is never updated, preventing the activation of the Stops and Locks.
