It is designed with a flip top lid and it contains a plastic loop handled strainer. The denture tub is used to soak dentures and the strainer provides easy placement or removal of dentures from the tub. Although the sample is not marked with the country of origin, you state that it will be marked “Made in China” when imported into the United States.

The applicable subheading for the plastic denture tub will be 3924.90.5500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides forother household articles and toilet articles of plastics: Other: Other. The rate of duty will be 3.4 percent ad valorem.
