Squeaky camera straps might seem like an odd problem to have. It’s one of those things you often don’t even notice until somebody points it out. Then you’re painfully aware of it, and it annoys you every time you hear it. But there is a simple solution from photographer Neil Van Neikerk. Lip balm!

Neil got the tip from fellow photographer, Kamila Harris (Facebook) and uses it with the Holdfast harness system. I’m sure it’ll work with just about any strap that’s bothering you, though.

So, if you have a squeaky camera strap, bag strap, or anything else. Here’s an inexpensive fix for you.
