Shock-absorbing seat post question

Can I adjust the firmness of this shock-absorbing seat post?
If so...how? (I believe it's a Zoom alloy suspension post.)

I'm guessing that you insert a hex key into the hole and turn it.

Yes with a hex key, you can turn the bottom to make the shock firmer. I have to say that if you are someone weighing more than 200+ those post don't do much but stay down. We tighten the one my cousin had on his bike and it just did not work with his weight.
