Here's a "different" idea I came up with:

Find how far back the center of gravity is on the box, and just in front 
of it, screw some rack ears into the box.  I've got some surplus 2U 
rack ears which might work laying around (2 per side) from APC Rack 
PDUs, which I could stick on one of my 420R's and see if they'll work.

Lemme know if you're interested.
