My thought was to use the pictured parts to establish an anchor point further up the seatpost. Leave the original seatpost collar where it is and with the new parts I could slide it up and down the post to the ideal point then tighten up the collar nut. I'd end up sawing off an appropriately sized piece of the shim.
