What are teams doing for safety lockouts this year?

We haven’t had a game with many teams having large horizontal expansions in some time - what thoughts have teams given to how they will safely lock out their expansions in the pits where a rapid horizontal expansion could prove dangerous?

We’ve got two “remove before match” safety pins in our mechanism. 1/4" diameter quick release pins, similar to the lockout pins used for the TTB telescoping tube that we used last year. Simple, effective, and our returning drive team members are already trained to remove them when placing the robot on the field!
