Seat Post troubles

So I'm sure ill get a lot of grief for this post, but I've worn out my efforts!
Just unpacked and put together my Stolen Sinner XLT. There isn't a seat post clamp or anything. Just the seat post an seat... I get the seat in and tighten by tightening the 6mm screw in the seat... However this only tightens so much and I still get a little wobble on the seat post! Can anyone tell me if there is a way to get the post completely tight so that it won't move?

The seat is only for looks. Just shove it all the way in and tighten.

That's what I thought... Just wasn't sure if I was missing something on these internal clamps... Thanks for the advice.... Seat is down and as tight as it'll go!
