It is similar to a lipstick piece but a bit shorter. I'm starting to wonder if it's even Lego but if seems pretty compatible with everything.

    "Compatible with everything" you mean bars/3.18mm, studs, other System or Duplo elements? Which portion of the pictured element is "compatible" shaft ends or its middle? It would be helpful to have another LEGO element placed nearby.

    Actually I retested it and it seems to be a little smaller that the bars. It does not hold as good. It must not be a lego part

  • Makes me think of a lego pneumatic piece to connect tubes, but probably isn't... also inclined to think it's not Lego Jan 11, 2022 at 10:39
  • Today I discovered part 78258 <store.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=78258> which looks very similar, but the ends are longer on the Lego piece.

Whatever brand it is, I don't think it's Mega Bloks, because I got a bulk lot of those recently and found a Mega Bloks piece like this, except its ends aren't rounded like your one (I know my piece is Mega Bloks because it's the same dark speckled grey as the other piece in the photo which says Mega Bloks on it).
