help with collisions on hands with steamvr template

Hi! i’m using proteus’s excellent steamvr template to make a game. For some of the levels I’d like to be able to have it so that when i make a fist it enables a collision on the hand mesh that i can use to smash destructible meshes and enemies. I’ve had no success so far tho. It seems like the left hand has a collision on it by default, at least i can knock over destructible walls with the left hand, but not the right. I can’t seem to find it in the vive pawn blueprint tho.
I’d be happy if i could just get the right hand to also do this, without the triggers enabling it. if anyone could point me in the right direction i would be eternally grateful.
thank you!
