My MIL wants me to lock our three year old in his room at night!!

Are you kidding me Lois??  Just because he's getting out of his bed at night do you really think it's necessary to turn his room into a prison cell?

WTH Does anyone do this??

Omg, I could only imagine the panic and terror this would cause a 3 year old who woke up in the middle of the night.

 That's nuts.  I would never lock a child in their room.

yeah, and when the kid panics in the middle of the night, mil will blame you! ask her does she want you to chain him to the bed too, but dont be surprised if she says yes..ignore her "advice", or tell her if she insists on it, then you expect her to pay for the lock, and monitor it
