7821/7841 mounting alternatives

Does anyone know of a good way to mount a 7821 or 7841 phone to either a single-gang electrical box, or standard telephone mounting plate (with keyhole posts)?

The issue here is that the 78XX phones do not have the built-in keyhole mounting notches that the 79XX series had, and the wall-mount kit (CP-7800-WMK=) is suited only for mounting to drywall or other flat surface.  I have a situation where a number of phones need to be mounted to I-beams where only a single-gang electrical box is installed.

Thanks in advance!

I'd like to know if you found

I'd like to know if you found a solution? I have the problem too. It's hard to believe there is only one option for mounting this phone, yet search high and low and you will find no alternatives. Also, if you do happen to mount one of these phones near a heavy slamming door, the handset will fall off...and yes that is after flipping the "hook" around.
