Could you use a capo as a locking nut?

What would you clamp it around, the original nut?

I doubt its a good idea, a locking nut uses a screw to tighten down on the string locking it in place, where as a capo just presses down enough to fret a string, it probably wont exert enought pressure to be useful.

No.
Not enough grip.
Closed.

People may argue this, put your capo on and cut the strings behind it, hold it's tune?
Doubt it and even if it does, it'll not be intonated cause the pressure it's causing on the springs would be far too great.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

These are far superior to Floyd Rose R Locking Nuts in my opinion.
Use a graphite nut instead of a plastic or bone nut and it'll keep in in tune as long as you need it.
