A grill assembled in the US, with a US made shell, burners and controls
valves but with knobs from Mexico can be labeled as Made In The USA since
the knobs are insignificant to the overall product.
A lamp assembled in the US, where the shade and brass are US made, but the
base is imported can not be labeled as Made In The USA because the base is

Sears doesn't own the Craftsman brand anymore. Eddie Lampert, the
hedge fund dude who bought Sears and Kmart and combined them into
Sears Holdings later spun off the Craftsman, Kenmore, and Diehard
brands into a subsidiary company called KCD IP. That enables him to
sell those brands through other retailers, and most importantly,
permits him to continue to own those asset brands even after Sears
Holdings goes belly-up.
Complain all you want. Eddie Lampert doesn't give a shit. Forbes named
him the worst CEO in America because of his track record of running
Sears Holdings into the ground.
