We have a tiled ceiling at all our offices which have a recessed rail. We bought the recessed bracket, but as you can see from the picture the clips on the side make the recess pointless as they then push the tiles up as if it was a normal bracket. Anyone got any better designed brackets for recesses ceiling tiles?

I think the solution/workaround is to carve bits out of the ceiling tiles to make them fit nicely. Not a great solution though..

This is needed, to varying degress, for almost every grid-mount AP I've ever seen.,

We sometimes don't even use the metal strip of the recessed ceiling, but the normal 'screw mount' plate, on the middle of the tile, with a piece of lightweight wood behind it. In this way you can mount the AP to the tile before you put it back on the ceiling again..

(this solution was born when the AP120 showed some problems because of the metal backplate touching the metal strip of the ceiling, which wasn't grounded and made the AP reboot/act weird).
