In your main assembly open the properties of the sub assembly and make it flexible. Look here on how to do that;

In your assembly (mast) design tree on the left side of your screen, right-click on the subassembly (h.cylinder). To make (h.cylinder) flexible select the button in this menu titles "Make Subassembly Flexible". It has a yellow T shaped part and a green box.

The second way to do this is as Stephen said from within the properties, which you can access in the same way, by right clicking the subassembly (h.cylinder).
