1. An assembly comprising: a device having a face comprising a plurality of attachment structures; and
a bracket configured to mount the device to a support structure, the bracket comprising:
a first side having a first set of attachment apertures corresponding to a first subset of the plurality of attachment structures;
a second side extending substantially perpendicularly from a first edge of the first side in a first direction; and
a third side having a third set of attachment apertures corresponding to the first subset of the plurality of attachment structures, extending substantially perpendicularly from a second edge of the first side, opposite the first edge, and in the first direction, such that the third side is substantially parallel to the second side,
wherein the bracket is configured to support at least first and second mounting configurations of the device to the support structure;
wherein in the first mounting configuration, the first side is attached to the first subset of the plurality of attachment structures of the face of the device using the first set of attachment apertures and the second side is attached to the support structure such that the face of the device is in a first orientation relative to horizontal;
wherein in the second mounting configuration, the third side is attached to the first subset of the plurality of attachment structures of the face of the device using the third set of attachment apertures and the second side is attached to the support structure in a second orientation of the face relative to horizontal that is perpendicular to the first orientation of the face;
wherein the second side has a second set of attachment apertures corresponding to the first subset of the plurality of attachment structures;
wherein respective ones of each of the first, second and third sets of attachment apertures together form a slot extending in the first, second, and third sides of the bracket; and
wherein the slot is configured to support rotating of the bracket to selectively attach the first, second, or third side of the bracket to the first subset of the plurality of attachment structures of the device without completely removing the bracket from the device.
