Wrap with 2 layers of large bubble size bubble wrap and then place in
a box and fill the voids with wadded up newspaper or peanuts.
This should be sufficient for any bare tube. For a tube inside an
enclosure, then you need to take a look at how the tube is mounted in
the enclosure. Some enclosures just have plastic mounting posts
holding the CRT in place. That's fine for the CRT sitting on a desk,
but not good when the whole thing is dropped 2 feet from the back of a
truck. In those cases, I suggest wadding packing inside the enclosure
to keep the CRT braced by more than just the mounting posts.
