Use the Android Flash Tool. It's foolproof and gives you the option to relock the bootloader and wipe data.

To manually lock the bootloader, reboot to bootloader, and use ADB:

fastboot flashing lock

If you intend to manually flash the factory image via ADB, make sure this is the LAST thing you do.
Kool, I did not know that the flash tool would do this.
