These knee pads will be shipped six to a carton. Stock No. 40622 is the same product shipped twelve to a carton. As you requested, the sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the knee pads will be 3926.90.9880, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plastics, other. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.
