If the tension on your bars is low enough to snap the hooks up without a tool you are not redistributing any weight to the other axles. This means pretty much all the tongue weight is on the hitch.
Now, if your tongue weight is below the weight carrying rating of the hitch, you are good to go, if it is over, you need the WDH to move weight to the front and trailer axles.
