An occluder, and methods for occlusion, that employs first and second opposed occluding members associated with each other, a tube contacting member connected to, or comprising at least a portion of, at least one of the first and second occluding members, and a force actuator constructed and positioned to apply a force to at least one of the first and second occluding members. The application of the force by the force actuator may cause the tube contacting member to move between a tube occluding position and an open position. A release member may be configured and positioned to enable an operator to manually move the tube contacting member from the tube occluding position to the open position even with no force applied to the at least one of the first and second occluding members by the force actuator. In one embodiment, the force actuator may apply the force sufficient to bend both the first and second occluding members, so that upon the application of the force by the force actuator (such as an air bladder), the first and second occluding members (e.g., spring plates pivotally connected at opposite ends) bend and the tube contacting member may move between the tube occluding position and the open position.
