using pivots in strength test simulation

Looking to simulate a strength test. As you can see in the picture, the idea is to use some round supports and apply a force to the center pipe. I have the bottom supports set as bearing supports, thinking that would allow them to pivot. But it`s not working. The sides of the part should be in line with the red lines. So my pivots are not working. I`ve been trying to find a way around it, but nothing works. How can this be done? I have a contact set between the pipes and the test piece.
