The key chain is composed of anodized aluminum and the attached 7/8 split key ring is made of steel. Your letter of inquiry states that the caribiner key chains with the key rings will be imported in a variety of colors.

The applicable subheading for the caribiner key chain will be 8308.90.9000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for clasps, frames with clasps...of base metal, of a kind used for clothing,...other madeup articles; other, other.
