locking K12 RS seat to high position

My Sergeant seat will not stay up on the high setting. It slips off of the front after riding for a while and or hitting a bump. Any suggestions

Um, maybe it's a hint you've got the wrong saddle.

Every Sargent saddle I've been on has been an annoyance more than anything else. If it's what you've got, there it is. I'd let Sargent help solve the problem.

Not all who wander are lost. Which still leaves room for more than a few lost wanderers...

If the Sergeant is using the same "catch bar" than the OEM.....it is slotted and adjustable.

Had to piddle with that to get the Scorbin to catch but that one is one position only.

OEM seat....PO wasn't even aware that it could be set on high. He should have been for such a big guy. But then the catch wasn't working for the high position and the seat could only go to low. Until I fixed that, took less than 5 minutes.
