almost to the bottom
Are you using the glow in the dark tip? I bought a little light that screwed on fish sticks, but only used it once or twice until it unscrewed and bounced around in the bed of my truck.

How is the camera fixed to the soffit? Screw into a joist or stringer?

2 screws are into only the aluminum soffit and 1 into the facia board. This soffit was good quality thicker gauge. I also kept camera on top of a rib in soffit for extra rigidity. I used #6 soffit (metal) screws. Most older homes around here have plywood underneath soffit so Then i use 2-3 inch wood screws. I suppose if you placed camera underneath a truss and forward enough to facia board you could use 2-3 inch wood screws in at least 2 holes.

I use them every day. The threaded ends do come loose after time from multiple installer abuse.

I'll be looking into installing about 15 cameras running cable thru my attic in Florida. Needless to say it's the 7th circle of hell up there in summer... Do you recommend these rods? I was looking at what Amazon has and I see lots of Chinese garbage.
I have the same ones, they serve me very well.
