Locking Topics for Admin Only

I'm trying to make it so that only admin's can lock / unlock topics (Rather then also allow the author do such). I know there is an option to do this somewhere, but i read through the manual and can't find it.

Any suggestions?

$userUnlock=0; If it is set to 0, registered user can not unlock his topic again after it was locked (by admin or himself), and vice versa.

$userUnlock=2; - users can not lock topics at all.

This is a little... hm... let's say, democratic option, but we see that it's possible to lock it :) Sometimes opportunities (for the users) like this are good thing, sometimes - not very much :) I have set mine to 0 :) But I think that it's very good to have it in principle - more options, more possibilites, with the same simplicity. Very good board :)
