Issues of Form with Deadlift Partials

I started a beginner Sheiko program today and I was looking at my next workout when I spotted Deadlift to Knees and Deadlift from Pins on the list.

I can imagine deadlift from pins is simple and I would simply have to lift it with the same form and lock out.

But how far should I lift for the deadlift to knees? It seems easy, but do I drop it as soon as I reach my knees? Or should my legs lock before dropping?

same form. Stop at the knee.

Locking out your knees with the bar at that level would be some crazy bad form.

Thanx.
