    I've gotten tapped by wristlocks on the gournd a couple of times by a JJJ guy in my no-gi class. Much to my humiliation, he got me mainly while in my guard. But I'm a complete graple noob.

    I also got hapkidoed once when I asked my friend in Hapkido to show me some of what they did, to which he replied "okay, but it isn't much good in a real fight." then twisted my wrist and made me fall to the ground tapping out.
    "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
    A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."
    -A.J. Newton, Boxing.

    Everytime I grapple I use wristlocks, just not the way you think.

    Yes, I've used a variety of wrist-locks quite effectively in both competitive matches as well as in real self-defence situations.

    However, that being said, trying to apply a wrist lock effectively takes considerable skill to apply against a resisting opponent (and does not always work, so be prepared to quickly move onto something else), and I generally won't attempt to apply such techniques untill I am in good control and position of the situation to attempt such techniques. So yes, with enough practice and skill, and knowing when, where and how to apply according to the situation, such techniques can be used with good results.

    I use wrist locks all the time for submissions, they always follow positional control and then isolating the arm. Nothing wrong with them.

    Some in the ground. Standing, never: 1) too difficult and 2) I'm not interested to go ballistic against a training partner to prove a point.

    It seems most here have used them on the ground. My instructor in Bjj is really good at them. you can see him get on in 101 submissions Vol. 3.( renato Tavares). they hurt.

    I have taught them as control techniques for police and military. But really the gooseneck is the best one
