Why not just have a mechanism that locks the overhead bins while the seatbelt sign is on? Or something along those lines.

That would be possible but I would bet the resulting cost / weight penalty would negate such an idea based of course on the overall risk factor (number of flights / number of evacuations / loss of life due to delayed in evacuation caused by carryon baggage removal).  In other words the bean count would rule.

just throwing it out there but dont you turn off the fasten seatbelt sign for an evacuation 😎

Jazz policy is to turn off the seatbelt sign for an evacuation.  It’s the second item after the FO advises ATC the aircraft is evacuating.

Don’t know why it wouldn’t be on every checklist.

IIRC, on some aircraft, exit signs can be tied to the seat belt switch when the gear proximity switches are in ground mode.
