Hi Bob,
I have had the same problem and eventually discovered that the shroud of
the peg (arrowed) was tipping sideways ad partially entering the "jaws".

The solution was to carefully center the pin to the hole in the catch.
I found that covering the catch hole with masking tape and pressing down
gently helped to determine which way to move the peg.
