In the words of that great detective, Charlie Chan, "Explain, please."
Colt DA revolvers have only one locking point for the cylinder/crane assembly at the rear of the cylinder. S&W and Ruger DA revolvers lock both at the rear of the cylinder and the end of the ejector rod (most S&W's and Ruger Six Series) or on the crane (Ruger GP100, Redhawk, Super Redhawk, SP101, and LCR).

IIRC, Charter Arms revolvers also rotate clockwise....but don't use a rear-latch design....
Actually, they do lock at the rear of the cylinder only similar to a Colt.
