Dear Ms. Davidson:

In your letter dated April 12, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

These hangers are made of polypropylene and each hanger has two clips that are made of 100% polyacetal, which are intended to be used to hold the garment. You have stated in a telephone conversation with this office that these hangers will not be imported with clothing or used to display clothing in stores. They will be sold for use in the home for hanging skirts and pants.

The applicable subheading for the plastic garment hangers will be 3924.90.5600, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other household articlesof plastics: other: other. The duty rate will be 3.4 percent 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/.

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 Gary Kalus at 646-733-3055.
