Default Wider Trigger Attachment?

I once had a pistol that had some sort of aftermarket device applied to the trigger with set screws. It basically made the trigger wider and more comfortable to pull double action.
Anyone ever heard of anything like this?

Trigger shoes were popular on target guns in the 50's and 60's. Don't see them much anymore. You could look at the one on my Winchester target 22 rifle.
Here is one- Paintball - Cheap Paintball Guns, Gear and Paintball Equipment

That's what it looks like, only not purple!
Trigger shoes, now I can look them up online.

One company that made a lot of them was Tyler. They also made a clip on grip adapter for revolvers. Tyler Manufacturing and Distribution Company, Inc Be SURE that the trigger shoe is not wider than the trigger guard. Saw an FBI agent blow the back out of his J Edgar suit when reholstering in a shoulder holster- trigger shoe snagged holster.

"Be SURE that the trigger shoe is not wider than the trigger guard."

A S&W with a target trigger has a trigger wider than the trigger guard,at least on many models. I would never recommend a trigger shoe of any kind on a carry weapon.

In addition if using a trigger shoe, be absolutely sure they are secure on the trigger. If not they have been known to slide down striking the trigger guard preventing the trigger from being be pulled to the rear.

All good advice.
I think I could probably solve some of these potential problems with a few easy remedies:
If the shoe is wider than the trigger guard, file or grind down the shoe carefully on each side so that it is not too wide. Then polish so it is smooth.
To keep it from coming loose, drill small (emphasis on small) indents into the hammer where the set screws go, and Loctite the screws.
