I believe your talking about a spool for your real axle? If so that locks the axle all the time. A locker disengages, but a spool keeps the axles spinning the same speed all the time. So both wheels are always turning the same speed no matter what, even if your turning. Not very applicable for a DD or street vehicle, mainly used for off road only vehicles and drag cars.

Minispool fits in the stock carrier, replaces spider gears. Only as strong as your carrier.
Spool replaces the whole carrier, stronger than mini.
both lock wheels 100%, 100% of the time.

Pretty much exact defination right there. I have a minispool in my '71 chevy, cuz i'm too cheap to throw a detroit in there for the strip. A minispool is 4 pieces....two pieces that slide onto the shafts, and two blocks that lock those two pieces together, thus locking the shafts together...

A mini spool allows you the same effect as spooling your wheels, but it replaces the spider gears as was said, instead of replacing the entire carrier. It's not as strong, but it means you don't have to re-set your gears. It's better if you don't plan on changing gear ratios and is easier to reverse/remove than a full spool.
