Owners manual protective cover?

I thought most cars this day and age came with a protective cover to place the owners manual in. Well, GM did not include a protective cover with the owners manual. Short of taking the one from my Silverado, does anyone have a suggestions for how to protect the owners manual, where to buy and aftermarket, etc.?

fabric made of titanium and kevlar.
Or a plastic book sleeve you can get for $0.50 at any bookstore.

In today's age of cost cutting, I haven't had a "protective cover" on a GM manual in the last 4 vehicles. What's worse is the couple I saved from a few years ago are slightly different size so none of my more recent manuals fit in them. Argh... Oh well.

Plastic

If the OM had a cover it would probably be plastic or fake leather ---THEN-- there would be a thread complaining about the plastic or fake leather cover.

Guess I'll have to put the OM in a secure place in my hosue to preserve it.

The last protective cover I got was on my '01 Denali. Never thought about it until now.

Does it come in any case?

My avalanche has a whole zipping cloth case that holds the manual and quick reference cards.

If it doesn't, I'm swiping it from my truck before I trade it in.

I special ordered a black box for mine. If an airplane hits me while driving they will be able to find it.

Gee, maybe we had better ask GM to put these vehicles on hold until we have a manual cover for the book.

Are these CTF, Preorders, Dealer Stock, or Rentals?

Methinks there is a marketing opportunity here.
