My KH seatpost is coming loose right where the rail adapter connects to
the seat post, how is this connection made and can it be tightened back
up .

unfortunately this is the failure point of KH posts, I don't think
there's really a way to fix it, just email kris and ask him for a
replacement. If not, buy a thomson seat post and don't look back. :)

It will ruin the heat treating of the aluminum and you'll never get back
it's previous strength, that's just the bothersome qualities of
aluminum. You can try it, but I don't know how long it will last.

Unfortunately common in some batches, the connection is glued. Driling
straight through and bolting is a pretty effective solution.
