Advice on "drop front supports"

I am building a desk with a drop front; like a secretary's desk, only at a 90 rather than a 120 degree angle when closed.
The only supports I have found are at Rockler http://www.rockler.com/ecom7/product_details.cfm?sku 25&filter)777 http://www.rockler.com/ecom7/product_details.cfm?sku 63&filter1040 http://www.rockler.com/ecom7/product_details.cfm?skuB1&filter2110
The nicest one seems to be the second, but it looks quite complicated, and I am not sure it will work at 90 degrees. The first looks kind of bulky and maybe not as secure as the other two, but it comes in antique brass, which I want. The third looks easiest to install, but maybe a little cheap.
If anyone has used these items and can tell me more about them, I would be very grateful. Or, if you can suggest another product (even at another supplier) that would be good also.
Thanks.

It is nice and strong with no other support? I am putting a lot of work, not to mention wood, into this and don't want to see the front break off! Thanks.
