Dear Mr. Langtry:

In your letter, dated January 17, 2006, on behalf of your client, Lastar, Inc., Dayton, OH, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The computer tool set is packed in a fitted vinyl case with a zipper closure.

The applicable subheading for the computer tool set will be 8206.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for tools of two or more of headings 8202 to 8205, put up in sets for retail sale.

The article in this set subject to the highest rate of duty is the wrench, classifiable in subheading 8204.12.0000, HTSUS. The rate of duty will be 9% ad valorem.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.
