Adding baffles to vaulted ceiling attic for blow in insulation - thoughts?

I'm planning on adding more insulation to my attic that has a vaulted ceiling below. Will blow in 12 in of Atticat fiberglas on top of existing batts.

I know I need to add baffles to keep the blown insul out of the soffits... but there is no way I can get a foam baffle down at the exterior wall plate due to the scissor truss angles...wayy too tight for me to get down there.

Any creative ways for me to fashion a baffle that can be put in there?

Thanks

Use a long stick, maybe with a string-operated clamp, to get the baffle in place. Once in place shove some loose-fill against it to hold it in place.

If you use the plastic instead of the foam baffles you'll have a better chance of them not breaking.
Do not buy the cheap folding grabber!
