Title: Shrink- or stretch-wrapping system for object stack

Abstract: An apparatus for wrapping an object having vertical sides and a top with a hood-shaped foil having a closed end and an open end fits the foil over the object in such a manner that excess-foil projections are formed at the closed end that project outward from the top of the object and an empty space is formed adjacent each projection between the foil and the object. The excess-foil projections are mechanically engaged and physically tucked between the object and the foil to push the projections into the respective empty spaces.
