RE: The tariff classification of a shoe tote, a carrier sling, a visor, and a handi-pak from Taiwan, Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Hong Kong, and China.

Dear Mr. Peterson:

In your letter dated February 11, 1991, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have submitted a sample and photos of four items. Item #1, called a "Bullet Shoe Tote", is a shoe tote bag constructed of nylon textile materials. The bag appear to have a zippered top compartment with an additional front zippered pocket. The items intended use is for carrying/storing of golf shoes before or after playing golf. The front of the bag features the "Bullet Golf" logo.

Item #2 is a "Cougar Carrier Sling" strap constructed of textile man-made materials. The item is used as a strap to be attached to golf bags and golf bag covers.

Item #3 is a open crown visor which is white in color, and is comprised of a browband, peak and an adjustable strap. The peak is made of plastic and is covered with a blend of 65% polyester/35% cotton woven fabric; sewn onto the bottom portion is a thin layer of green foam. The browband is made of foam and its front portion is covered with the same type fabric which covers the peak. The back portion of the browband is covered with terry cloth fabric. There is an adjustable woven strap, which is connected to the browband and fits at the back of the head when the visor is worn. On the browband and the strap in black lettering appears the logo "Bullet Golf".

Item #4 is a handi-pak designed specifically to be attached to a golf pull cart as an accessory to contain golf ball, tees, scorecards, cigarettes, etc. The item is constructed of steel, and cannot function alone as the underside has permanent metal attachments to connect to the cart handle.

The designated textile and apparel category may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Since part categories are the result of international bilateral agreements which are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the Status Report On Current Import Quotas (Restraint Levels), an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available for inspection at your local Customs office.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
