I agree with Rick. Since the bench is attached to the wall at the other end, it cannot really wobble or sway so is the sliding lock really necessary? Since it looks like the bench will be pretty heavy, it may be pretty awkward trying to get them to line up properly with one hand while also lowering the bench. Don’t forget that the top will move in an arch so it might not even be possible for it to slide together/apart since the joint has to move in a straight line. It is an interesting design idea, though.

The easiest and maybe just as effective approach might be to just use basic strap hinges to attach the legs to the underside of the table so that the weight of the bench ends up sitting on the top[of the legs once it is down.
