Default Any way to lock phone via screen with Nova Launcher?

Seems with the stick LG launcher you can lock the phone by double tapping the screen which is very nice. Downside is you cannot put widgets on the bottom row where I usually put my sms and phone icons at. I've always used Nova Launcher but now with Nova Launcher the tap to lock does not work which means you have to lock the screen by the button on the back which is a majour pain since I always hit the volume buttons by accident. Anyone have any suggestions on this? I'm open to other launchers and also haven't rooted yet but plan to over the next couple of weeks. Thanks a bunch.

Install program screen off and assign double tap shortcut to it.

With LG Stock Launcher you can double tap anywhere to lock the device. When using nova just double tap the notification and it will lock.

That would work on screen that is showing.

As someone above said, install this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....screenofflock

Then in Nova Launcher go to settings and select the gesture for Double Tap to launch the Screen Off app.

Also, gestures are only supported in the paid version of Nova Launcher as far as i know.

Can you double-tap for screen on as well? I'm loving this feature on stock.

G3 Tweaks also lets you turn off the screen by double tapping the navigation bar (or at least the blank portions of it). It makes for a bigger target than the notification bar.
