Dear Ms. Koo:

In your letter dated March 19, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Pacific Fairway.

The item concerned

You state that the purpose of the item is to serve as an easily-attachable or -removable windshield for a golf cart. You further state that the windshield will be retail-packaged with six bungee cord stretch hooks and simple instructions in a plastic bag and that the item will be imported into the U.S. through the Port of San Francisco.

The applicable subheading for the golf cart windshield will be 8708.29.5060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Parts and accessories of . . . motor vehicles . . . : Other parts and accessories of bodies: Other: Other: Other.
