It features textile strap handles

The gurney cover is constructed of nonwoven spun bonded polypropylene fabric coated on one side with polyethylene. It features two web fabric straps with a plastic buckle and strap handles.

The blood pressure sleeve is composed of a nonwoven spun bonded polypropylene textile fabric panel coated on one side with polyethylene. The sides are seamed to form a tubular shape article with an elasticized opening at each end. It features a clear plastic window.

The strap assembly is constructed of twelve adjustable web fabric straps with plastic buckles. The straps are assembled together to form an adjustable strap to cover a patient’s head, shoulders, chest, abdomen, pelvic, thigh and leg areas. The straps are made of nylon webbing fabric.

The applicable subheading for the stretcher cover, gurney cover, blood pressure sleeve and strap assembly will be 6307.90.9889, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles . . . Other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem. The rate of duty for the year 2003 will be the same.
