The article possesses padded adjustable shoulder straps and a removable textile bib which attaches to the padded straps by means of metal snap fasteners.

The applicable subheading for the baby carrier will be 6307.90.9989, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles...Other: Other, other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.
