The Suction Cup Clock measures approximately 3½ inches in length, 3½ inches in width and 1 inch in height. The clock is housed in a blue PVC and polypropylene case. The clock has a suction cup molded on the back used to fasten the item to tile, glass and other non-porous surfaces. The clock requires one button cell battery to operate. The battery is included.

The face of the Suction Cup Clock features the traditional Arabic numbers 1 through 12 around the periphery corresponding to the hours of the day. The clock has a round white dial with black hour, minute and second hands.

The applicable subheading for the Mini Suction Cup Clock will be 9105.21.80, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for wall clocks; electrically operated; other. The rate of duty will be 30 cents each plus 6.9 percent ad valorem on the case plus 5.3 percent ad valorem on the battery.
