I believe what you have in mind is generally referred to as a "posistor". That is true regardless of the device's manufacturer, although strictly speaking, "posistor" is a registered trademark of Murata. Such a device is more commonly known to the lay-public as a "self-resetting thermal fuse". They are generally very good, fast, and effective devices, but are limited in their application to fairly low power and voltage applications as compared to regular fuses and circuit breakers.
Editorial: One would think that of all stores, Radio Shack would absolutely specialize in the marketing of posistors. In fact, they should consider changing their name to....
That reminds me, I worked with a product development engineer at RS back in the late 80's who was such a twisted thistle, that one time he called me to as if it was ok to use a "1/2-Amp" fuse in a location where the print called for a "500mA" fuse.

Lots easier to blame Palin than accept responsibility for f'ing up and dropping the ball. Barney Fife could do better than this over-the-hill a$$-clown.
Oh, that'd be that Greek guy who came home because he couldn't stand to leave his brothers behind.
Maybe we could nuke 'em. Better yet, pull out all of our troops and let North Korea nuke 'em. Commies ought to be good for something.
Don't worry, it will still be "Radio Shack", and it will still suck. For the past 20 years or so, at Radio Shack, change = more suction.
I sold for only $11.60...One-thousand shares I had bought an hour earlier at $11.18. I've literally done more work shaking nuts out of a tree. Better go soak my sore index finger, the Founder of the Feast.
Buy low, sell high. The Jews have a word for people like you who do the opposite:
