Get exclusive lock

I have some colleagues who work with vss and I want change to svn (they are
losing data xD). They use binary files (word documents, crystal reports, .),
and I want that they can work with exclusive locks in svn like vss works .
I've read http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.2/svn.advanced.locking.html (Lock
Communication part). We work under Windows, with svn and Tortoise client.
I've put in each client (in Tortoise config file) that each file was created
with svn:needs-lock property, it works ok. When a user wants write in a
file, he needs "get lock" the file, it works ok too. But now, the problem .
A user, for oversight, can open a file and start to write (the file is in
read-only mode), he forgets "get lock" the file, and when he finishes, he
couldn't write in the file. I want that a user when opens a file (it's with
svn:needs-lock property), it displays a message saying that the file is
read-only and requires "get block". This is the only thing which my
colleagues do not want to go svn . (no comments).

I always say them that each file needs "get lock" for writing in it, but
they say me that they can forget do it . (no comments again xD)

Thanks beforehand.


P.D.: I have svn 1.4.6 and Tortoise 1.4.7.
