The furniture item, called "The Neat Locker", is a locker organizer. It is a two tier wire rack that will fit into a metal sports locker providing shelves for orderly storage of various items. The heavy gauge steel metal wire rack is plastic coated and is assembled, by the purchaser, by attaching the wire shelves to the legs. The "Neat Locker" is assembled in just 30 seconds and fits both full standard and half size lockers. It is constructed for placing on the floor of the locker.

The applicable subheading for the wire "Neat Locker" from Canada and Hong Kong, will be 9403.20.0020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, HTSUS, which provides for other furniture and parts thereof, other metal furniture, other. The rate of duty will be 4 percent ad valorem. Goods classifiable under subheading 9403.90.8040, HTSUS, that are subject to duty, which have originated in the territory of Canada, will be entitled to a 0.8 percent ad valorem rate of duty under the United States-Canada Free Trade Agreement (CFTA) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.

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