I cannot find doubleclick in the documentation and these forums. Is it available for mousebind?

One possible way is you can define a mode, and bind mouse click to it and bind mouse click again inside the mode. Like this:

set $Locker i3lock-wrapper -l && sleep 1
mode "test" {
    bindsym --release button1 exec --no-startup-id $Locker, mode "default"
    # back to normal: Enter or Escape
    bindsym Return mode "default"
    bindsym Escape mode "default"

bindsym --release button1 mode "test"

By default, the binding will only run when you click on the titlebar of the window.

When I double click window title bar, my PC will be locked.

No, there's no built in way to do this in i3.
