The merchandise is the Yale Heritage Series Door Knobs, styles Bridgeport, Cambridge, Oxford and Stratford. All are of brass. They include three general types. First are the non-locking knobs. The dummy pull is used where only a pull is required. The passage knobs are operated by either knob at all times.

Second is the non-key-operated privacy knob. These knobs may be secured with a push button on the knob mounted to the interior of the door.

Third are the key-operated knobs. These include the keyed entry, classroom and storeroom knobs.

The applicable subheading for the non-keyed knobs will be 8302.41.9045, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for base metal mountings, fittings and similar articles suitable for furniture, doors, staircases, windows, blinds, coachwork, saddlery, trunks, chests, caskets or the like, other mountings, fittings and similar articles, suitable for buildings, other, other, suitable for interior or exterior doors, other.
