I'm not sure I understand the question....

Why would you want to release the latch with the bars loaded? The bars are the last thing to install, and the first to remove. When the bars are loaded, the ball and latch are also under some load. You want the ball and tongue to stay attached while you raise the tongue and hitch (normally with the tongue jack) to install/remove the bars with no load on them.

The first try after arriving home from the dealer, I had to watch a couple of utube videos before I fully understood the bar installation/removal process, as I was new to WDH hitches.

just my experiences, yours may differ
