A buret clamp is a chemistry laboratory support device, to affix and hold steady another piece of equipment (a glass column called a buret) which will be reacted with chemicals. The clamp has holding jaws, which are curved to firmly grasp the column in two portions of its long axis. It also has an attachment, by which it grasps the support post.

The clamp is a piece of hardware which makes a retaining bridge between the ground support post, and the chemically reactive vessel.

There are several basic designs and makes of buret clamps, which serve to accomodate the choices and work detail, of the chemist.
