Hi Hakim,
You can apply displacement, but you should remember that you are trying to displace the body from one point to another. You can apply the force reaction on the face of the bock where the displacement is applied to see the force required to pull the clamped body. In this case, you will have two friction forces: one static and the other kinetic. You can determine your grip forces by analysing static, limiting, and kinetic friction as compared to the applied force for your particular analysis. you can adjust your grip forces according to the pull force.
