Mounting a Firepower 2140 in 2 post rack

We have a couple fpr-2140's that came with rails but we're looking to mount in a 2 post rack. Is this possible with the hardware that was included with the purchase or do we need to buy the rack kit? Seems crazy that the 2120's come with the the kit we need but we're going to have to spend more money to make the 2140's work.


Thanks!

You would need something like this:  https://m.cdw.com/product/black-box-rail-extension-bracket-rack-rail-adapter-2u/2916305

 

BUT..... My Firepower rails are now twice as thick as the standard ASA rails and I cannot fit the Firepower devices in the 2 post rack any longer.  They bind against the inside of the 2 post rack.  Soooo now either I need to mount them to the wall with a vertical mount or mount them in the server rack which is in another room and then I will need to purchase long fiber cables and GBICs.   

 

Fail cisco.
