Towing with a weight distributing hitch, but not using the bars...?

Is it alright to use the weight distributing hitch without the bars? My trailer is light so I dont really need the bars, but I have the weight distributing hitch. So is it alright to use it as a regular hitch? The weight of the hitch is high enough for the trailer. Thank you.
