In your letter dated October 22, 2004, on behalf of KooLine LLC, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Photographs were provided with your letter. The “Koo-Clips” are used to store or hold eyeglasses onto belts, backpacks, purses and automobile sun visors. The clips consist of two plastic oval sections with metal fastening clips. The plastic ovals can be separated and the eyeglasses placed between them before they are snapped back together to hold the eyeglasses. The metal clips are used to secure the clip to a belt, purse or other item.

The applicable subheading for the storage clips for eyeglasses 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.
