Sub-Assembly mates that allow parts to move after inserting into the main assembly

I want to make a sub-assembly that allows some mates to move after I insert the sub-assembly into my main assembly. I have done this before and know it is simple but it has been too long ago for me to remember how.

 

Example:

A dial indicator (sub-assembly) that touches a slide (main assembly). When the slide is position at a different position I want the stem of the indicator to extend or retract.
