I usually do a static at the end of each rep, but not at complete lock out becase then it is just more of a rest perion, the joint is doin the work not the muscle.

Agree on never locking out.
But also during skull crushers and the like don't bring the direction of your arms completely perpendicular to your body because even if you don't lock out you still will have the weight on your skeleton. In other words, keep the arms back about 10 degrees to make sure all the weight is on the tris.

Correct. Back as in your elbows are back (just slightly) to get the weight off your skeleton.
Trust me, 99% of people in the gym don't do this. It works wonders!
