For me with our colubrids it is when I have lifted the tails and confirmed there is full penetration. So far none have 'unlocked' as a result of a gentle lift. I was very nearly fooled by a pair that remained twined for hours, male showed the twitching of ejaculation and I observed the hemipene everted, only to find that when I did check them, he had not locked up at all. Female laid slugs - confirming for me that from now on they are fully confirmed by lifting tails before I am confident they have bred.
