Simulate body "sliding" over another if contacted

I want to create this jig where a force is applied, and the lever changes its angle causing the joint to go downwards and push the last bit marked with orange on the side.

The two rigid arms (purple) are supose to center the last bit when it goes down.

When that bit's sides (orange) come in contact with the arm (purple) it need to behave like in reality and "slide" over it - downwards from that point on.

How do I create that sort of a mate that only applies if and when the two sides come in contact?
