Dear Ms. Locke:

In your letter dated March 13, 1997 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have submitted five photographs of various items. Based on these photographs, we are able to provide a ruling on the following two items:

Item 118155L is a car trunk net with hooks, stated to be 12 inches long by 24 inches wide. It is made with polypropylene covered rubber cord, which has been knotted to form a net-like structure, and fitted with plastic hooks.

Item 128155L is a packaged set of 6 "tie downs," which are polypropylene covered rubber cords with metal hooks at each end, in various lengths ranging from 12 to 24 inches.

The applicable subheading for item 118155 will be 5608.90.3000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up nets, of textile materials; other; other; other.
