So you set a total of five issuing rules? Not defining rules does not prevent checkout. Instead the default issuing rules are applied.

You could define five issuing rules for each course. One for the item type they are supposed to be able to borrow and four for the other item types, where you set "Current checkouts allowed" to zero. This still won't make checkout impossible, but you will get a warning asking you to confirm the checkout.
