Help me understand this trailer hitch

Ok, so I bought a cheapy trailer. I guess this hitch is supposed to be secured around the seatpost?

This is the bike I plan to hitch it to - I'll have to bodge the trailer arm between the panniers and the saddlebag!

Actually, the more I look at it, the more I can't hook it up with the saddlebag on there. Bummer.

Like This; Duct tape added to prevent rattling.

On the seatpost clamp bolt? Wow! I'm gonna have to mess around with it at lunchtime. Makes me wish I had something I needed to haul today. Thanks
