Dear Mr. Chipman:

In your letter dated October 30, 2014, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have submitted a photograph of an item you call a Logistic Tie-Off Strap PK2. This is a polyester fabric strap with a steel D ring on one end and steel hardware on the other.

The logistic tie-off strap can be used with tie-down straps, to secure cargo with rope and bed nets. You indicate this tie-off strap has a weight capacity of 2000 pounds and measures 7” x 2”.

The applicable subheading for the Logistic Tie-Off Strap PK2 will be 6307.90.9889, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTSUS), which provides for other made up textile articles, other. The rate of duty will be 7% ad valorem.
