    You can find information on how to hide these in the help center under IOS: https://cad.onshape.com/help/Content/mateconnector_a.htm?tocpath=Assemblies|_____8 

    Once created, you are able to hide or show Mate connectors in both Part Studios and Assemblies:

    • use the context menu in the Feature list (Hide, Hide other Mate connectors/Show, Show all Mate connectors) - Hide other Mate connectors hides all Mate connectors but the one you have selected.
    • Use the Hide/Show icon (the eye icon) in the Feature list to hide a specific Mate connector.
    • Hiding/showing Mate connectors in a Part Studio or Assembly is exclusive to the Part Studio or Assembly. Mate connectors hidden in a Part Studio are visible when inserted into the Assembly. You are able to view Mate connectors in a Part Studio and keep them hidden in the Assembly, and vice versa.

    Same with your mates!
