Why not build the french cleats into your bench, basically replacing the brackets?

You could basically build an apron under the bench itself, in between the brackets, and make it a french cleat. You could use screws through the horizontal brackets into the end grain of the cleats and down through the seat. Then you can plug the holes to make them kinda disappear.
