shelving pin repair


HI
I have some 1/4 inch pins which are breaking down the drilled hole in the 5/8 inch Plywood construction. These were just storage shelves. Is there a collar or female pin available that would allow me to repair these drilled holes that are losing their integrity? In other words insert them in the hole and they would hold the pin?
I think one of the issues is we just used a basic pin, rather than a pin that distributes the weight. But even if I buy new pins, I still need the holes to be repaired and hold their integrity. Any suggestions? KellyO

Kelly,
Maybe something like these would work:

You could probably glue them in place.

or fill the hole with a 1/4" dowel and re-drill it.

You might want to lighten the load on these shelves or use an alternative support system. These pin systems are better geared to book shelves and kitchen cabinet shelves.
