I'm thinking the solution requires a hammer.

This puzzle is driving me nuts! A glass bottle, bolts, and a wood rod.

My mom picked this up at a garage sale for me. There is a picture here
but mine has 3 bolts and a much longer neck, like a wine bottle. The bolts aren't tightened completely so they can shimmy from side to side but the width of them is such that they will not fit through the neck of the bottle. The say the hardest part is getting the rod back in, but I can't even figure the first part of getting it out. I know i'm not explaining it well for someone who hasn't seen it, but has anyone come across this and know the trick?
