This is an interesting point. Note that any WDH (snap-up bracket, Equal-I-zer, Anderson, Dual-Cam (?)) will be easier to engage if you first raise the coupler with the tongue-jack.
The Equal-I-zer comes with a cam-like lever to raise the bars into place. I almost never use the thing, preferring to simply lift the coupler with the jack, and rotate the bars into place.
Likewise, I've heard Anderson users say that this allows them to place that bracket under the ball by hand, and they never have to re-adjust the chain-tension at all.
For you, with snap-up brackets, just jack up the coupler until the lever-force required is minimal.
