Why do Tombstones and Monuments Tilt?

As we strolled through cemeteries yesterday, paying our respects on Memorial Day, did you notice something amiss? Did you see any leaning or tilting memorials among the solemn rows of monuments and tombstones? It's a common sight, one that often goes unnoticed until it catches our attention, prompting questions about why it happens and what can be done to rectify it.

Monuments leaning at precarious angles aren't just a cosmetic issue; they're a matter of respect and preservation. These markers, meant to stand as enduring symbols of remembrance, can succumb to the wear and tear of time, weather, and shifting ground. But why do they lean? Erosion, soil subsidence, inadequate foundations, or simply the passage of time can all contribute to their gradual tilt. Moreover, it's crucial to note that freezing soil that is wet can expand up to 9%, exacerbating these issues. Additionally, when drought strikes, the ground undergoes significant changes, further impacting the stability of these monuments.

This phenomenon poses a dilemma for cemetery caretakers and visitors alike. How can we ensure these monuments, which honor the memory of our loved ones and commemorate important historical figures, remain upright and dignified?

The Tombstone Jack is the solution to this ongoing problem. With this device, you can lift, level, and reset monuments and gravestones in under 30 minutes, with minimal effort and maximum safety.

It represents a commitment to preserving our heritage and honoring the memories of those who have passed on. By ensuring that monuments remain upright and secure, the Tombstone Jack helps to safeguard their legacy for future generations.

So, the next time you visit a cemetery and notice a leaning monument, remember that there's a solution at hand. With the Tombstone Jack, we can restore honor to these memorials, ensuring they stand tall and proud for years to come.
