When mounting to ceiling tile grid with inset grid the AP mount causes the tiles to push up.  See photo.  The Meraki system we are replacing had a mount that did not push up the tiles.

We're in a similar situation in a couple of our schools (standardized ceiling tiles in a school district would make so much sense).  Aerohive makes a ceiling mount bracket kit (their part no. AH-ACC-BKT-80211AC-KIT, we're ordering them through CDW).  It still pushes the ceiling tiles up a bit, but no where near as bad as just having the AP mounted to the ceiling grid by itself.

It looks like you have recessed ceiling tiles.  You need to use the recessed ceiling tile mount.
