If they want my seat they need the allen key and a pair of cutters. The seat post is cheap.

You can glue ball bearings in the allen bolt recesses.

edit: Getting it out is tough, but that's the point. I use wood glue so it can be dug out with a metal pick.

Sounds like you don't like your saddle much. Do you harbor similar resentment toward your seat post?
