Time and action locks can arise freely in timed automata specification. We review techniques for avoiding the occurrence of timelocks, based on the Timed Automata with Deadlines framework. Then we present a notion of parallel composition which preserves action lock freeness, in the sense that, if any component automaton is action lock free, then the composition will also be action lock free.
