1982 1100 aspencade seat

I removed the seat on an 82 Aspencade. My question is-the left bolt retains a clip and spring--What is the purpose of these? Tried pulling on clip with bolt in place--nothing happened.
Thanks in advance----- PAP

Supposedly this is the seat position adjustment clamp - in theory you pull up on the little lever, and you can then slide the seat forward and backward to suit the rider. I've never been able to actually get it to work.

THANKYOU for your answer. It's all coming to me now-uh , in other words it makes sense after your input. I felt a little cramped today on a trial run. I'll rip her off again till it works. Don't ya just love working on these machines. Honda was way ahead of the game in the 80's.
Thank you again. PAP
