The reel has a metal clip so that it can be attached to a person's belt.

The applicable subheading for the key reel and the plastic hook will be 3926.90.9890, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plastics, other. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.
