The second sample is the “Parador Skirting Clip” which is used in the installation of molding. The third sample is the “Parador Glue Spatula” which is used to apply glue.

The applicable subheading for the wedges, skirting clips and glue spatulas 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.
