This is not very sound advice.
Check your specific gravity for at least 3 consistent days. Then, when it has stayed put for three days, you're good to bottle. Airlocks are really just an immediately tangible device for home brewers, not so much a great sign of this or that. I literally only rely on mine to show that fermentation has STARTED.
