Are you referring to a three point lock? Where the rod that bolts into the head and sill will not retract?

The only "small rod" I can think of, is the small anti-saw steel rod inserted into the end of many deadbolts....I've never heard of one coming loose and sliding out tho. I doubt this is what you're referring to anyway. Is the rod preventing the door from opening? Need better description.
