It measures approximately 11-3/4 inches long by 4 inches wide and is used to hold and store one standard paper towel roll.

The applicable subheading for the paper towel rack will be 8302.50.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for base metal mountings, fittings and similar articles, hat-racks, hat pegs, brackets and similar fixtures, and parts thereof.
