RE: The tariff classification of bicycle tire repair kits from China

Dear Mr. Hackett:

In your letter dated April 3, 2003, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Your three samples are the large, medium, and small versions of your bicycle tire repair kits. You list the elements in the kits as follows:

“Large Kit Our PT #2610

1. (1) Air Gauge used for measuring air flow 2. (5) Tire Plugs, made of synthetic rubber 3. (1) Valve Core Remover tool
4. (8) Chrome caps
5. (2) T-handle tool
6. (2) Radial Rubber tire patches
7. (2) LG Round tire patches
8. (15) SM Round Rubber tire patches
9. (1) .41 fl oz Rubber Cement
10. (8) Plastic caps
11. (1) Metal Scruffer
12. (8) Valve Cores
14. (4) Air Needles
15. (2) LG Tubeless Valve Stems
16. (2) SM Tubeless Valve Stems
17. (1) Air Chuck, Air pump parts

Medium Kit Our PT #2510

1. (1) Air Gauge used for measuring air flow 2. (2) Tire Plugs, made of synthetic rubber 3. (4) Chrome caps
4. (7) SM Rubber tire patches
5. (1) .41 fl oz Rubber Cement
6. (4) Plastic caps
7. (1) Metal Scruffer
8. (4) Plastic Valve Extenders
9. (4) Valve Cores
10. (1) 4 way hand tool
11. (2) Reamer Plugger screwdriver
12. (1) MED Plastic tackle box

Small Kit Our PT #2410

1. (1) Air Gauge used for measuring air flow 2. (4) Chrome caps
3. (4) Plastic caps
4. (1) 4 way hand tool
5. (4) Valve cores
6. (1) SM Plastic tackle box”

The sample gauges do not measure air flow, but air pressure. We consider their HTS heading up to be the last in the HTS which equally merits consideration in supplying the essential character to the set. We assume that each kit will be sold as a unit at retail.

The applicable subheading for the three kits will be 9026.20.8000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for non-“electrical” instruments and apparatus for measuring or checking pressure. The rate of duty will be free.

The sample is being returned to you in a separate mailing.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist J. Sheridan at 646-733-3012.
