The HS code of the tools that I need to repair my laptop

I have a old Dell Inspiron 15-5558 that I got from my grandpa. I entered the Service Tag number to the Dell support Web page. From there, I found the repair manual for this laptop.

I am going to do a camera Replacement and a RAM upgrade.

For my specific repair, the manual says I will need a screwdriver (#0 something) and a plastic spudger. I can secure myself a screwdriver but I need an spudger.

Service Manual from Dell:

So I am thinking to buy a Ifixit spudger.

So if any of you wonderful Ifixers can find the HS code of the spudger, I would be grateful…

Wondering what is a HS code?

Hi @thesimpleguy

I assume that since you will be buying just the one spudger I don't think that you have to worry about it.

There are 6 ifixit stores around the world so maybe try one closest to your location if you're worried about customs duty and shipping etc.

Here’s a link if you’re interested in what HS codes are for and who uses them etc.

Alternatively ask here. This will get the attention of the ifixit admin

In my country the economy is in a bad state. The customs will try to detain something to save dollars. So if they classified this thing as something more valuable than the HS code of a spudger and added a higher HS code I am screwed.

and our customs is not like the US CBP, they are kinda foolish. If they tagged this with a HS code of something like:

1. jeweler's tool

2. a tool made of "special" material,

they are gonna put a behemoth of taxes so please find me the HS code.

I used an aiutomatic classification tool called "" offered by and I typed prybar(not necesarilly a spudger) and filled the options(composition, end use) and got 8205.59.00.

But I am skeptical that there would be and another HS code for something that a "spudger thing" like: used repair computers.

2.opening tools.

So I would be very much grateful!!!

I just used old credit cards and the like to open cases. Screw drivers are very common so you should be able to buy them locally.
