shear pins/shear bolts

I see references to use of shear pins,and shear bolts.
Are they one in the same?

I'm not sure what machine you are dealing with, but, for example, a snow blower can have bolts to hold the auger in place that are intended to break when things get jammed. ie shear bolts. So both references can perform the same safety function.

Hope that helps,
Bud
