Shear Bolt Change?

My local Home Depot had previously had Ariens OEM Shear Bolt packages, but were all sold out. I ordered from Home Depot to be delivered to the store (closer than the Ariens Dealer) and didn't want to roll the dice with Amazon fakes.

It appears my order was shipped directly from Ariens to Home Depot for me (my name is on the invoice), with the right part numbers.

However, the bolts have always been black color with the brass colored nuts. The ones I received are all silver colored.

Does anyone know if Ariens made a change to the part or changed suppliers? They were in a sealed box direct from Ariens, so I believe these are the genuine part, just different than I am used to.

They are the same, just a different coating and color

Those are what you need, as long as the diameter and length are correct

Be cautious as the diameter difference may be minuscule.


I have a black one pounded into a 924039 and I realized it was wrong and have been unable to remove.

For what it's worth, my new 2018-2019 Ariens Pro32 came with two bright, shiny, silver shear pins and nuts in that little plastic carrier mounted on the machine. But at the same time I purchased several bags of replacement shear pins, also from Ariens, and those were black. Same dealer, same day of delivery, etc. My bet is Ariens has more than one qualified vendor for these parts, that they're all considered functionally interchangable, and you get whatever was most recently delivered to their Receiving dock.
