Lastly, you can over tighten the bars if you raise the tongue high enough. This could cause the trailer wanting to push your tow vehicle straight into a turn. Could be a problem when the roads are wet. All and all a great hitch set up.
Why is a breaker bar with a socket better !!!!

Blue Ox Weight Distributing Hitch ?

Our trailer has a dry tongue weight of 1100 lbs so I ordered the sway pro 1500 set I couldn't get my f 250 no where near level. I ordered 2000 lb bars which are to be here Monday which I hope will level the truck.
I use an 18" breaker bar to set the chains. It gives me enough swing, I don't have to remove the propane cover and the bar gets my hands away from the trailer fame when disconnecting.

Simply it's more comfortable to the hand and you have more leverage. Oh yes more knuckle clearance.
