Question about Shelf pins
Karen Tokarse on Aug 22, 2017If the pins are wooden, fill the hole with wood glue. Then "shim" wooden matchsticks around the pin until it's tight. After the wood glue dries (a day or so), cut the matchsticks flush with the cabinet. If the pins are metal, fill hole with E6000 glue and cover with tape. After glue has thickened enough to hold pin, insert pin. Then tape bottom until the glue is dried.Helpful Reply
DesertRose on Aug 22, 2017We had that problem and solved it with a dowel rod we found to fit, then cut it in 1 inch pieces to put in the shelf holder holes. Being wooden you can carve them down if you cannot get an exact match. That is what we had to do. Make sure the fit is tight. It did workHelpful Reply
Nancy Turner on Aug 22, 2017I whittled down the wood ones that were too big so that the end fit tightly. I did not want to go with metal pins as I was worried it may wallow out the holes in my antique bookcases.Helpful Reply
Margie Spenser on Aug 23, 2017I use metal pins and find that I can put toothpicks in the hole around the pin and just bend them until they break off. No glue needed. When the shelf is in place you can't see the hole so it doesn't matter if the toothpicks aren't cut neatly.Helpful Reply
