1. A system, comprising:
a member extending along a longitudinal axis and
a manipulating portion coupled to a distal end of the member including a first actuatable member and a second actuatable member, each of the first actuatable member and the second actuatable member being configured to transition from a deployed configuration to a locking configuration, wherein in the deployed configuration, the first actuatable member and the second actuatable member each extends radially outwardly from the longitudinal axis;
wherein the first actuatable member includes a protrusion, the second actuatable member includes a cavity configured to receive the protrusion, and in the locking configuration, the protrusion is received by the cavity to form a one-way lock configured to prevent separation of the first actuatable member from the second actuatable member; and
wherein each of the first and second actuatable members is configured to rotate approximately 180° relative to the longitudinal axis and toward the distal end of the member so as to occlude the lumen.
