slip lock

1. n. [Well Completions]
A downhole lock device, run on slickline, that incorporates a slip mechanism that engages on the tubing wall to anchor the lock at the desired setting depth. Slip locks are not depth-dependent and do not require special completion equipment. However, the slip lock has limited function and pressure capacity and is generally less desirable than nipple or collar locks.
