Safety Coffin Grave Bell Halloween Prop

Glen Akins is getting ready for October with this spooky project:

This is video is a demonstration and explanation of my safety coffin grave bell Halloween prop for Halloween 2021. People were really worried about being buried alive in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The safety coffin was devised as a way to alert the grave keeper that someone was trapped in their grave. It consisted of a string tied to the corpse’s finger that ran up to a bell tied above ground. If the recently deceased woke up in their coffin, they could ring the bell to summon help. When unsuspecting trick or treaters walk past the grave bell, it rings to summon the grave keeper so that the recently deceased can be rescued.
