Has anyone ever have an issue with squeaky belt/holster leather like I do? I use a Kramer horsehide leather belt and find that it’s pretty loud no matter what holster (horse or cow) interfaces with it. I imagine that it’s the wax top coat on the belt that is causing it, or perhaps the tightness of the rig that I’m wearing. Any hack solutions for loud gunleather?

I’ve used powder (talc, baby powder, something like that) to take the squeak out. Just a little bit on the contact points.

Carbona shoe wax (clear color) on the contact points. Occasional re-application may be required but it’s quick and effective.

Renaissance Wax may work just as well as wax and I bet the talc powder idea above will too.

I have Kramer belt and horsehide holsters....and never had a squeak issue...??

I suggest you call or email Kramer...see what they recommend.../ they should be open around 9am west coast time on Monday / but there is a link to ask questions too if you google them...( I like the baby powder idea...)...

I have at least 15 Kramer Horse holsters and a belt and I use the Carnauba wax I use on my cars and trucks. It is real 100% in a cake. (Pinnacle Souveran Carnauba) This and it just takes a tiny bit fixes it. This is not the stuff at PEP boys so make sure it is real wax not a chemical called wax lol.

Glad I stumbled on this thread, as I’m an old man, but I gone to wearing Kydex a good bit of the time simply because I sound like a Rocky Mountain pack mule, walking down the hallway of my office, when wearing leather. Kinda hard to go incognito.

Milt Sparks recommends Renaissance Wax. I've been using it for years, including on my Kramer horsehide. Just a little goes a long way.
