The sample measures approximately 23 inches long in its relaxed condition. The fiber content is listed as 50% rubber, 40% polypropylene and 10% steel. The cord will be imported packaged in a poly-bag with a header card.

The applicable subheading for the "Elastic Bungee Cord", item #970190 will be 5609.00.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles of yarn, strip or the like of heading 5404 or 5405, twine, cordage, rope or cables, not elsewhere specified or included: Other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.

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