IMHO there a many reasons to just bite the bullet and replace the telescoping post with a Brompton fixed post.
The Brompton post is high quality, you know it will work, and if you ever sell the bike it'll be worth more because you have an OEM seatpost instead of some kludge.
According to Channell Wasson's website, the standard seat pilar is $23, the extended seat pilar is $24.50 (heavier guage alloy and 2 1/2” longer), and the telescopic seat pilar is $74.25.
$23 isn't terribly expensive.
