Lower Back and Locking Out

What might be the issue when locking out an exercise causes lower back pain?

I can RDL and Trap Bar Deadlift as heavy as I want but, when I get close to lockout I get a sharp pain on my right side,/lower back area. Have to keep constant tension on both exercises.

What yogi said.

There is literally no reason to keep moving heavy weight around if it’s hurting you.

Get your glutes more involved as well as your hips.
