Retractable mount for stepper motor Answered

I am currently working on a small project which includes a 28BJY-48 stepper motor. I want to make a retractable mount for the motor so I can extend it to a desire length. What is the recommended way to do it? I thought about intalling two metaling poles inside the body of my device which will be connected to motor and to use pg16 glands as a twist-lock locking

Details, details, details.... ;)
Without them giving a proper answer is quite hard.
A good option always is to use linear bearings and smooth rods.
A lever? Motorised? Just a start and end position?
