As I mentioned before, deadlocks occur because of lock inversions, that is one thread is holding lock 1 and requires lock 2 and another thread is holding lock 2 and requires lock1.

Our tools help you find lock inversions in your code without requiring deadlocks to occur, all you need to do is run the code under our Lock Inversion Detector, LID, or our Lock Inversion Analyser, LIA.
