Isn't it the bit that goes into a door onto which you fix a handle at either end and which allows you to open the door? Dunno what's it called...

no, to small..is that an albion shirt?
so two inches long and alluminium? so not a moving part as it would be worn away.It's not something you push into a key hole to get a print from?( endlessly suspicious mind)

It is too small to be a door thingy.
It's made of stainless steel and seems well worn, it has scratches up the sides so it looks like the square shaft goes into something
Here it is next to a two pence piece

It is certainly not part of a door handle. Given that it was found outside your door it could be from a bag - a handbag for example, where this part added strength to allow the bag to be used to carry nail extensions. Alternatively, given the trend for larger and larger earings, could this be a pin to go through a pierced ear? If so you may find pieces of ear outside your house too, if the local cat / fox / hedgehog hasn't already eaten them.

looks like a new rivet to me, like the ones you would find in old wooden doors holding the metal straps in place albeit silver coz it's aluminium rather than black iron of yore

Dont throw it away. The moment you do, you'll find what it fitted in and that it's essential!
