A lattice is locally bounded if and only if each of its finitely generated sublattices is bounded.

Every locally bounded lattice is locally subbounded, and every locally bounded lattice has a bounded hyperfinite extension in any nonstandard enlargement . This latter nonstandard property characterizes locally subbounded lattices.

A locally bounded lattice is locally tight if and only if each of its hyperfinitely generated extensions is internally tight. One can also prove the following result, using nonstandard characterizations of these notions: Let be a locally finite lattice with at least one strictly increasing meet endomorphism and at least one strictly decreasing join endomorphism. If is locally tight, then it is bounded.
