SD1 6-Lobe Head (Star type) Screwdrivers

SD1 Screwdriver (6-Lobe/Star Head)
The Alpha Communications® Model SD1 6-Lobe/Star head screwdriver is used for installation and maintenance of many of our intercom systems, lobby panels, directories and master annunciators. 

It is designed to be used with a #6 size 6-lobe (Star) head type screw.

While not required for system operation, most specifications call for the installing contractor to provide the facility with any "special tools" required for proper system maintenance.

We recommend that the installing contractor provide a model SD1 screwdriver, with each lobby entry panel that uses these types of screws.
