Answer: 
The brackets are rated at 300 lbs so I assume you could use then for a folding bench. You would have to make sure that you mount them to the wall into studs or backing plate with the correct screws or bolts.

I am assuming that you lift up on the shelf/table past 90 degrees and the bracket releases to fold down vertical with the supporting wall. Is this correct?

Answer: 
Lift the shelf from the down position to the up position and allow it to "latch" by itself. Lift the shelf a small amount to "unlatch" the retaining mechanism and then slowly lower to the down position.

Answer: 
No, you have to push up on a release lever that is mounted inside the channel that is mounted to your shelf. It is "one" hand for each bracket to fold. Holding this lever up while you lower the shelf down. Lifting the shelf up the brackets automatically latch into secure position.

To open a shelf just grab the outer edge of the shelf and lift (no "release"/button push/hold is needed). To lower the shelf, lift up slightly on the outer edge of your shelf and press on the underside of the outer end of the horizontal part of the bracket ---and--- hold down on that "release" spot until your shelf has lowered enough to get past the 70 degree shelf angle detent of the bracket (see my Read More
To open a shelf just grab the outer edge of the shelf and lift (no "release"/button push/hold is needed). To lower the shelf, lift up slightly on the outer edge of your shelf and press on the underside of the outer end of the horizontal part of the bracket ---and--- hold down on that "release" spot until your shelf has lowered enough to get past the 70 degree shelf angle detent of the bracket (see my review of this bracket on how to eliminate this "hold" requirement). Obviously you need to do this at the same time for all the brackets supporting your shelf, so consider carefully if you're thinking of using more than two brackets (these guys are strong; I can't imagine needing more than two).

Answer: 
Yes it does lock in the horizontal position. However I did not use the two brackets I bought and returned them. They were actually too heavy for my application for a small shelf alongside my sink in the garage. If they were lighter duty they would have been perfect. Very good quality.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Versitile The only reason this didn't get the extra star is the price. A little on the expensive side. As others have said, careful installation and a little fine tuning is necessary but not difficult. I used these for a fold down table in the garage. Very sturdy. Overall I'm pleased. Just follow the directions on the sticker. I am an avove average do it yourselfer but even a novice will be fine with some patience. April 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by That's what I needed..... Very good product. I needed something like that to add side table to my AV cart for presentations. It looks good and works well. Just one thing: it comes only in white color. I tried to pain it, but ... If it was in black I'd give six stars :) July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Good product - you might need an extension drill bit to install properly due to design. July 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Did what I wanted! Brackets work great. Mounted a 2x4x3/4 in plywood worktop and it not only looks great but also will support me (210#) with no problem. I do advise mounting into studs or properly into a solid wall. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just Right For Laundry Folding Shelf These shelf brackets are exactly what I was looking for. Very strong, easy to mount (use level and measure, with stud finder). Made a modification to have both brackets fold at same time by hooking them together so you can fold shelf with one hand. Works like a charm. Price is a little on the high side considering you have to purchase two at a time. Recommend! August 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product This product is easy to install and works as designed. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super convenient, well made, mount them carefully! These are a bit pricey, but they really work great. I use them with a 24x36 Pine Panel to make a handy desk that folds down against the wall when we don't use it. Very rigid when locked into place, I'm quite convinced that I could stand and jump on it and it would pull out of the wall before the brackets gave. I agree with the other reviewers that the multiple lock locations are a bit of a pain, but it's merely an annoyance and not a deal-breaker. Somewhere in these reviews someone spoke in detail about taking care with the mounting, and that's good advice I wish I'd heeded. I got them mounted to the wall, then opened them up and just screwed the desk panel to the brackets, but when I folded it down it wouldn't go all the way down. After much staring and figuring, it seems that while I mounted them exactly parallel to each other, because of a fluctuation in the wall, once they were extended out they were not exactly perpendicular to the wall. So then when I screwed the top to the brackets, they were locked into that poor alignment, and when folded down into the closed position there was interference in the bracket. Check that they are aligned with each other but also perpendicular to the wall when extended. Just do it. Do it. Fortunately I was able to make it work by loosening up all the screws and fiddling around with it, and while it's still not perfect it's functional and closes all the way. March 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heavy Duty, High Quality - how to fix unwanted angle options This is truly a strong heavy duty bracket - well made and assembled. Yes, since its not made "sloppy" with all kinds of wiggle between parts, it does mean you need to take care when mounting it, but when you're done you'll have a sturdy firm, not wiggly, fold down shelf. The only thing I didn't like was the extra detents for 70 and 80 degrees. Having them means that when you fold your shelf down you have to continue holding the release until you get past the 70 and 80 degree self angle detents. It's much nicer to be able to give the shelf a slight up lift, press the release (and then let go of it) and be able to simply lower the shelf all the way in one smooth motion. To make this possible I cut a small block of wood: 3/8 x 7/8 x 1 7/8. I temporarily removed the small release spring, put a small amount of heavy duty hot glue along the 7/8 edge and put the block in the guide channel exactly at the 90 degree detent. NOTE: do not make the block longer than 1 7/8 because that would create a "step" in the channel and thus during the shelf fold down it would mean that you would have to press the release for a second time.
