You submitted a sample of the “Sesame Street Buckle Alert” - Style #73314. This item is a battery operated plastic electrical device to be attached to a motor vehicle seat belt buckle. The Sesame Street Buckle Alert audio signals are activated each time a child buckles or unbuckles the seat belt.

The applicable subheading for the “Sesame Street Buckle Alert” - Style #73314 will be 8512.30.0040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Electrical lighting or signaling equipment...Sound signaling equipment...Other. The rate of duty will be 2.5% ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Robert DeSoucey at 212-637-7035.
