"fozzy locker" is along the same lines as a "Lincoln locker" where the spider gears are welded. The difference is that instead of welding the gears to the carrier or to each other, only selected voids in between the spider gears are filled in a “butterfly” pattern. In essence it allows some differentiation between the axles until the filled teeth on the spiders come into contact with the teeth on the side gears. How much differentiation depends on how many teeth are filled in the spiders.

This is useful for giving the axle just enough differentiation to allow some amount of turning before full lockup which helps to keep from squealing tires in parking lots, in tight turns, etc, and also somewhat reduces tire wear.
