'000210 : Cannot create output .'  - ModelBuilder

I am having trouble overwriting an output shapefile from ModelBuilder.

The model works great when ran the first time, but I get an '000210 : Cannot create output .' error if I re-run the model. The error states 'The output cannot be created. Potential reasons include data locking, an incorrect path, and limited access rights..'

I've noticed that there is a .lock file associated with the shapefile so I assume this is my problem. I've selected the overwrite outputs of geoprocessing options checkbox in the geoprocessing options.

My model is very simple, I am just using a multivalue iteration to buffer a line segment at different buffer widths and then clipping to a polygon. I am using the inline variable subsitution based off of the buffer value for my output shapefile name.

Anybody know how to fix this? or possible work arounds? I am using ArcMap 10.2
