RIng master Strategy: Remove Rings from holder

Aloha !

One of my teams would like to remove the rings from the holder BEFORE/while/after pressing the release tabs…
would this be legal?

Per <G16>, *Robots *are not allowed to remove Rings from the *Bonus Tray *when it is not Released. Removing the Rings beforehand or while pressing the release tabs would be a violation of <G16>.
