Sorry to be obtuse, but what's a "pattern tracing lock"? I Googled the term and the only result was your blog post.

Go into Security Settings on the Android, and you can lock and unlock the phone by tracing a pattern of dots on the opening screen. Just click the pattern link, and follow instructions to create one. From then on, when you turn the phone or tablet on, you will be presented with a grid of dots that you must trace with your finger in the same pattern as you set up. Better than a password.
