How can I make my assembly operate with the intended motion without constraining everything?

So I am modeling a gripping mechanism, and the intent is for the rubber grips to approach each other when the piston pulls downward and the opposite as the piston pushes upwards, with the two gripping arms rotating around the bolts that secure them to the support block, as can be seen in the file below. I know I have quite a few mates that are likely preventing the proper motion and it currently just doesn't move at all, so if you guys could give me some pointers I would greatly appreciate it!
