Replace component but keep the original part

Hey guys,


Working in SW2013 here.


I have an enclosure assembly with several configurations that is housing a bunch of electrical components. I need to add a configuration that will use a new enclosure box.


There are a lot of mates that go with the enclosure box since a lot of the components are mated to it.


I can't use "replace components" because it will replace the original enclosure with the new one. I need to keep the original for the first several configurations.


I can't use copy with mates either because the enclosure has a lot of mates and it gives me a message that it will only copy the first 12 external mates.


Can anyone think of a way to get around to doing this without me needing to manually add the roughly 100 mates one by one?
