AFAIK (we've never had the need for locks) you only have the pre-commit option
here, but don't take my word for it... I simply don't know for sure.

But I'd like to note that locks in SubVersion are not as hard as they are in
other VCS: they can be broken. See:

I believe the most often cited example for this is that if Alice locks a file
and then goes on holiday for two months Bob wouldn't be able to edit this
file for two months if he can't break the lock.
