The item, which measures 23" x 15", has four suction cups to secure the pillow to the tub and one air valve for inflation. Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the Terry Bath Pillow will be 3926.90.7500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plastics...: other: pneumatic mattresses and other inflatable articles, not elsewhere specified or included. The rate of duty will be 4.2% ad valorem.
