Also, attached is a metal D-ring. The safety belt is attached to a wider piece of webbing fabric measuring approximately 41 3/16 inches long and 3 7/8 inches wide.

The applicable subheading for the safety belt will be 6307.90.9480, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles...Other: Other: Other, other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.

Goods classifiable under subheading 6307.90.9480, HTS, which have originated in the territory of Canada, will be entitled to a 4.2 percent rate of duty under the United States-Canada Free Trade Agreement (FTA) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.
