Hardware mates in top level, hardware in its own assy?

I am building large frames with lots of assy hardware (nuts and bolts) I want the top level to only include sheet metal frame and purchased components (printers, scanners, monitors, ect) I dont want nuts and bolts to show on my top level BOM. I decided to create an assy (-000) with all nuts, bolts, washers...... and insert this assy into the top level as a "hardware kit" This works well for me except when trying to mate the hardware.  I assume its because the hardware is in its own assy and can only be mated in that assy? Is there a good work around or better solution for me?
