mountain bike seat post

hi guys im new here and new to these quick release things lol

i have a giant boulder omni mountain bike and i have a quick release seat post and the saddle keeps coming slack all the time , the saddle can be took off but it is pointless replacin it for another becasue the same will happen

can i take out the quick release post and fit a standard pole and would i also need to buy the bracket to fasten it in.

also are these poles different sizes if so how do i get the correct measurement

thanks

You just need a different seat post collar with a bolt.

Your bike shop should have them for cheap. There are several different sizes but your shop should know what you need.
