AP 115/135/205/215/225/325 equivalent of AP-105-MNT-C - Mounting AP's on recessed ceiling grid

What's the current equivalent of AP-105-MNT-C for new style AP's (IAP-215 for example)?

We have a customer that has recessed 15/16" ceiling grid - the tiles drop down 3/8" lower than the grid itself, and the AP's push up on the ceiling tiles, making it look really bad.

Looking at all the data sheets for the mounts for AP-135, AP-220, etc indicates that none of the current mount kits are for recessed 15/16". AP-220-MNT-C2 is for interlude and Silhouette ceilings - the installation guide says nothing about recessed, or 15/16". AP-220-MNT-C1 indicates that it's the exact same thing that comes in the box as in an IAP-215, and also not for recessed 15/16".

A similar post to mine is below:

I've got a case open with Aruba TAC, but I haven't heard anything back from them yet.

As you found, AP-220-MNT-C2 is for Silhouette and Interlude rails that will support the 215, as well as the 225, 205, and 300 series. The APs themselves include a mount for the 9/16" and 15/16" rails (AP-220-MNT-C1). If there is something special (a non-Silhouette/non-Interlude recessed 15/16" rail), then we don't have a default mount for it and something would have to be customized, or you could look at mounts that cut into the ceiling tile itself (the AP-220-MNT-T for example).
