'to stop holding smth'.

Your explanation is incorrect Pokeman.

Well, smb or smth, it doesn't change the meaning of the construction.
Imagine a situation where you are holding by the hand a person who is about to fall out of the window. If you let go of him, he will fall.
(or: If you let go of his hand, he will fall).

Do I misunderstand something?

Yes, and, Jcbabo, thank you for calling attention to the spelling of 'of'.
