Rails Convention for "Record Pseudo Locking" on Multi-User S

We are writing an order processing system, where we will display a list
orders for clerks to process. Obviously we don’t want two people
working on
the same order. In other systems we’ve put a LOCKED_BY column in the
database which is set on entering the edit screen and unset on saving.

But is there a Rails convention, or Rails way, for doing this (before we
off and write our own code) ?
