RE: The tariff classification of a hook from China

Dear Ms. Marcoux:

In your letter dated April 6, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample you submitted, Item number 51950, is a hanging hook described as a “Garden Hat Hook.” It measures approximately 12-1/8 inches long by 7 inches wide by 2-7/8 inches deep. It is composed of an MDF upper section in the shape of a straw hat, an iron hook for hanging things, a pine knob at the tip of the hook in the shape of a ladybug, tin flowers and bow, and foam berries. This is a composite article whose essential character is imparted by the functional iron hook.

The applicable subheading for the hook will be 8302.50.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for hat-racks, hat pegs, brackets and similar fixtures, and parts thereof. The rate of duty will be free.

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/.

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 Barbara Kaiser at 646-733-3024.
