The battery-powered massager unit is enclosed within foam padding which is encased within a zippered, plush cover. Two pockets are sewn to the top exterior of the plush cover within which the user's feet can be inserted. The unit is pressure activated. A sample was submitted. The sample is being returned to you, as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the Foot Massager - PP 141965 - will be 9019.10.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for mechano-therapy appliances and massage apparatus; parts and accessories thereof. The duty rate will be 2.5 percent ad valorem.

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.
