Millions of years ago, the Moon spun at a much faster pace than it does now. However, the gravitational influence of the Earth has gradually acted upon the Moon to slow its rotation down, in the same way that the much smaller gravitational influence of the Moon acts upon the Earth to create tides. This influence slowed the rotational period of the Moon to match that of its orbit " about 27.3 days " and it is now "locked in" to this period. http://www.moonconnection.com...

I want to know if moon is really ' locked in ' and what does it mean?

Perhaps you should post in Science rather than Religion?
