Closed Pin (Circle) that I need to open. How do I test?

Good afternoon and hello all.


I am after some assistance. I have a Circular Pin (attached) that has a clip holding it together. I have designed it closed so that I can line up all of the parts properly. It is supposed to be one part that can open once unclipped.


My question is:

I need to see it open, and test how far it will open when unclipped. I am hoping that there is a way to do this, however my knowledge base on SOLIDWORKS is growing day by day and for the life of me I cannot find out how to do this.


DISCLAIMER: If there is anything I have done wrong with the base construction of this drawing I am new to SOLIDWORKS, but I am sorry


Many Thanks,
