Do You Need Special Equipment for Lacto-Fermentation?
No, you don't. Beyond the usual kitchen utensils (like spoons and knives) you only need fermenting containers, and mason jars with metal bands and lids are ideal. (I prefer wide-mouth quart.) Really, this is all you need!
The airlock lid I love is the Pickle Pro from Homesteader Supply. It's a modified Tattler canning lid and fits on a wide mouth jar. When the ferment is done, you can swap the airlock for a regular lid to store in the fridge, then use the airlock lid for another ferment.
