Is This Gonna Hurt

I have a Pro Series 20000 5er hitch and was hooking up for the weekend. I did not notice that the bar to lock the jaws closed was already pushed in. Backed in and seated the pin and it was in place and the jaws closed around the pin. Does this operate ok like this or did I just get lucky with nothing bending?

You probably need to actually read the manual that came with your hitch. (I tried to find it online but could no longer do that.)

That's made by the same company that makes my Reese hitch and the instructions for the Reese specifically say that you are supposed to hitch it up by letting the pin push the jaws open.

Looks to be this one. I have the same style and only hook up with the handle closed but the latch open.
