Hello All,

I'm learning a little more about assemblies but am not familiar enough with assembly configurations (have only ever used them in parts alone).  I'm trying to make two configurations for a small clamping assembly for our shop.  I'd like to have one configuration with the assembly fully opened and one with it fully closed.  I have limit mates set up so that it can't open or close too far (the two mating pieces can slide up and down within this range) but not sure what step I need to take to have these configurations.  Would I have a "fully open" mate distance and a "fully closed" mate distances on the other configuration?  Please see screenshots.  Appreciate any suggestions!
