There are Sperzel locking bass tuners... but IMO if you go with a good enough pair of bass tuners, somethign with a high ratio, like 28:1, it's better than a locker.

Yes, it's Turns:One full going of the wheel. Most fenders are like, 10:1 (ten turns = 1 full string rap around), most good tuners are 21:1 or higher.

And locking tuners like on Guitar I'd not imagine are possible, they'd have to be insanely powerful to cut the bass strings and hold them in place.
