Shelf bracket

A home owner from Windsor, CT says:
You had offered another bracket in this link:
Larger shelf bracket needed : SWISCO.com http://www.swisco.com/discussions/Larger-shelf-bracket-needed-77-63347

I received my order today of (12) 32-313 : Shelf Brackets, but unfortunately, I did not order the right item.

but I think I am going to end up with the same issue. The peg I received has six sides to it (hexagonal), rather than being a perfect circle shape, like my old one.

Can you offer another solution?

Dave from SWISCO responded:
I don't believe the shape of the peg should be a problem as long as the outside diameter of the peg matches the size of the hole where it installs. The peg is most likely shaped like that to keep it tight into the hole, but it's not necessary for installation. If the peg shape is too large in diameter you could try filling it down just a little so to fit into the hole.
A quick learner from Windsor CT says:
Filing it down is a good idea, I will give it a try
