What you got to do, (if the clamp is the same as the deathtrap) look in the bolt hole and you will see two flaps that clamp around the post, you need to bend at least on of those open by prying it with a screwdriver or something. Dont bend to hard, you will break it and then you cant fix it at all! once you relive the pressure from the post, try the hammer, heat, or put it in the freezer for a little if the heat doesn't work. Remember kids, put grease on your seat posts.
