This problem is addressed a few threads down:

Also, for future reference, it is "squeak".

Try some talcum or baby powder. And are the holster(s) and belt brand new? Usually this goes away over time as the belt and loops break in and "mate" to each other. Also, while it is not vital that the loops fit the belt closely, you really don't want more than 1/4" difference in width, either.

Lexol is a good leather conditioner.

I buy mine from a local saddle shop, but I'm sure you can find Lexol online.

If Lexol only acts as a preservative, or some sort of lubricant at areas of direct contact, no problem. If it softens leather, you don't want this for a belt or holster. Also, does it dry or stay wet? This could get onto clothing.

Candle wax has worked for me in the past. Now if I squeak, I squeak 99% of the folks have no idea or even hear it. :banghead:
