The Screw-In Coffin

By on May 18, 2014

Inventor Donald Scruggs patented the Easy Inter Burial Container, a coffin that screws into the ground to enable easier interment and space-saving vertical burials. Three different lid options allow for customization of your eternal rest: burial container half interred, fully interred with a plaque, or fully interred with a headstone.
