RE: The tariff classification of a hunter's blind, a cable and lock, and a strap from China.

Dear Ms. Davenport:

In your letter dated February 27, 2002, you requested a ruling on tariff classification.

You submitted samples of the HVSL-1822, Tree Stand Lock with 8mm Cable; HVCB-400, Tree Stand Camouflage Blind for Ladder Stand; and HVTSC-200, Tree Stand Cinch Strap. Your samples will be returned under separate cover.

The camouflage blind is described as made of cotton and measures 41” x 57”. It is designed to be placed over a hunter’s tree stand and to fasten with hook-and-loop fastener strips.

The strap is a two-piece web belt designed to be wrapped around a tree to hold up the tree stand. One part is approximately 1-5/8” x 54” with a metal hook at one end. The other has two segments joined by a cinch; one is approximately 2” x 6” with a metal hook at one end and the other is approximately 1” x 7-5/8”. The two pieces of the cinch strap are designed to be joined with the metal hooks and to be tightened with the cinch.
