The eyelet measures approximately 1 3/4 inches long and approximately 1 1/2 inches wide. The self stick picture eyelet has a 1/2 inch fold at the bottom that has been stitched and holds a small metal strip. The eyelet is centered in the fold of woven fabric and the metal strip.

The applicable subheading for the self stick picture eyelet will be 8308.10.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for clasps,...eyelets and the like and parts thereof, of base metal, of a kind used for...other made up articles...of base metal: hooks, eyes and eyelets.
