Abstract

Disclosed is a thin, pliable protective wrap that is secured around an object by inserting tabs along one edge into slits at the opposite edge. Some delicate objects protected by a wrap secured with tape or adhesive become contaminated when the wrap is removed and the adhesive brushes against the object. Such is the case with wraps used to protect a photoreceptor in a copy cartridge. By securing the copy cartridge with a wrap without any adhesive, the problem is eliminated. As shown in the accompanying figure, a protective wrap 20 secured around a copy cartridge 10 protects a photoreceptor 12 from damage. The protective wrap has a slit 22 at one end into which tabs 22 along the opposite edge are inserted.
