    I tried saddle soap. Makes the leather soft yes! But didn't help with the creaking though. I came up with the fuzzy velcro idea and that took care of it.

    I had this issue too. I was using a regular belt that wasn't quite as as wide as the clips. When I walked the clips had about 1/4 inch of play to move up and down and this action would cause a creaking sound. I could push the holster down or tighten my belt one notch and it would stop. I have gotten a Crossbreed belt which fully engages the holster clips and have not noticed this issue anymore.

    Rub the candle on the areas where there is friction. The wax from the candle will not hurt the leather and acts as a lubricant!

    I was the GM for a boot company. Noise equals dry leather. It an organic material any good leather oil. I like Picard

    My crossbreed and my Kholster both creaked. Oil and a week of wear stopped it.
    Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!

    Just be careful not to use too much oil. Too much oil weakens the leather, sometimes to the point that it will pull apart.

    I have not yet oiled mine. While I don't know much about leather, it makes sense that it would require occasional oiling. I'll do that soon.

    I've put a fabric shim between the Kydex and leather, felt between the upper parts of the clips and the leather and taken my belt off all together... still creaking. Next, I'm going to wrap the gun in thin fabric and see if it goes away... will report back soon.

    Thanks for the wax tip, Realleycat!

    My creak update:
    1). I am not that old so it was not my bones!
    2). Had a different brand on pants on with the belt loops in a different location and once I moved it around there was less noise but still some.
    3). Went home from work tightened the clip screws and used blue loctite. No more creak.
    4).the holster must be worn in a specific location about 5 o clock as the leather has formed to me.

    thanks for all of the tips there are some good ideas out there.

    Ive had probably a dozen CBs over the years and all have squeeked. I've done the loop part of the Velcro on every one of them and the noise goes away!

    I had the creaking problem as well. I googled the problem and tried the Kiwi leather lotion fix. So far it's nice and quiet.

    Same deal for my supertuck when i got it. Had it for 1 week. Got some kiwwi neutral shoe polish and under the straps is where most of the sound comes from. Polish taht in there and it will cure it. If the sound is coming from belt - you may have to put some in the insides of the straps themselves at the point of belt contact. The deal is to make the leather slippery. The kiwwi has wax in it mostly. Will not hurt leather and will lubricate the contact point.

    I'm convinced it is the clips they use. I had a CBST with the old metal clips (not glossy) and it never made a sound. I sent my CBST in when I changed guns and they sent me a new holster with new clips. All of a sudden I heard a squeak or creak when I moved about. I used saddle soap on the leather and my gun belt and just broke it in. It doesn't squeak anymore after continuous use. Not sure if it was due to the saddle soap or just break in.
