I am trashing this DB up really good as only I can do.

I am trying to get this block to array the punch out hole on the metal stud at 24" o.c. as I stretch the stud.  I have a stretch action that has only one point showing, Woot.  I have an array that is array the hole but very awkwardly.  Can some take a look at this to tell me what I am messing up.
I some how got it to sort of work but i have no ideal how. 

There is too much space at the top of the stud before a hole appears.  Is there a way to adjust it so that a hole appears sooner?

Second question,
If I stretch the stud less than a certain amount the hole disappears?

See the attached file
I + XI = X is true ...  ... if you change your perspective.

I no longer CAD or Model, I just hang out here picking up the empties beer cans

You may want to add in specific incremental snaps, such that the bolt can only be dragged and stretched 0.25" at a time. This may make the appearing/disappearing hole problem easier to solve.
