Mating Sliding Parts?

I have an assembly for a mold that has two slides that are moved in both directions by another sliding member. If you look at the picture I uploaded you can see a yellow and a green sliding part that get pushed in and pulled out when the top sliding part engages the 30 degree slot. How would you mate this so when I move the top block up or down the green and yellow parts are moved too? I looked at the Mechanical mates and didn't think any of those would work. Tried the "Linear/Linear Coupler" mate in advanced mate but I always got an error saying that mate would over define my model. Any ideas are greatly welcomed.
