It is a 100% metal slider with pull. It also is in two different sizes.
The applicable subheading for style No. "zipper" will be 9607.20.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for slide fasteners and parts thereof, parts, other. The duty rate will be 20.7 percent ad valorem.
