1. select verts you want to lock
2. in channel box click where it says - cv's (click to show)
3.highlight the verts you want to lock
4. right click and select lock from the popup window or you can left click the channel tab and select lock.

just repeat the process and select unlock to unlock the verts

Thank you but is there a way to select locked vertices? And can I lock them only in one axis?

Hi guys, just created this python script to simplify the job for everyone.

import maya.cmds as mc

selectedVertex =, flatten=True)

for vtx in selectedVertex:
   mc.setAttr(vtx, edit=True, lock=True)
Just select the vertices that you want to lock and execute the script.
