You submitted a picture of the item in question. Your letter describes it as a helmet or neck support for a race car driver. It is constructed of a piece of foam wrapped in fire-retardant cotton fabric; the fabric on some models is knit and on others it is woven. The item wraps around the neck and fastens in front with hook-and-loop fastener strips. No dimensions were specified.

The applicable subheading for the neck support cushion will be 6307.90.9889, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other made up textile articles, other. The rate of duty will be 7% ad valorem.
