The Review

The triggers and caps come in a sealed cardboard pack with plastic sealed inside of it and you literally have to tear the packaging in pieces to get at the triggers and caps. It just seems like a lot of work to get to four little things, much harder than it needs to be really.

Once you get them out of the package you’ll find two triggers and two round silicone caps. The triggers do have a 2 on them and the caps have a circular pattern for grip.



To use them you just install them on your controller. The silicone caps were a bit difficult to get on, they’re very tight and I really had to stretch and pull them on and they fell off a few times before I got them on. Once on though the caps are a very tight fit and stay in place.

The triggers just snap in place on the buttons, you kind of have to angle it on and then push until it snaps and locks onto the button on the controller. You really do have to make sure they snap in place or they won’t stay on.




For the price I like these very much, they work well, the triggers really do make the buttons feel like triggers and they’re more comfortable to use. You can sort of rest your fingers on the triggers, before you couldn’t do that as the buttons are rounded.

The triggers can be tricky to get on yes, but you just have to make sure they snap in place to lock them on and they will stay.

The silicone caps are a bit more difficult to get installed, they’re a very tight fit, but once on they don’t move.

All in all these aren’t bad especially for the price.

+Really do work well
+Makes buttons feel like triggers

-Horrible packaging
-Silicone caps hard to get on
