    I found an old trigger shoe that I have had forever. I tried it on my KS-5 and it seems to fit alright except for one problem. The set screws have a tendency to loosen up and then of course the trigger shoe falls off. The set screws on these shoes are very small and can't be torqued too much. Is there anything I can put on these screws to somehow alleviate them from coming loose? As stated they are very small screws, so anything like loctite would not be a good idea if I would want to remove the shoe. Thanks. Ed

    A dab of clear silicone in the groove of the shoe and wipe off the excess and allow to dry. This takes any play out between the boots groove and the trigger. It works great.

    Tron: When you say clear silicone; do you mean clear silicone caulk that you purchase in a home improvement store or ??. Sorry to ask a dumb question. Ed

    Use RTV silicone that you get at an auto parts store.
