The value of this tool (the clamp) may derive from the local environment where it's used. That is, your area of Russia may have developed this tool and it's used a lot there. While in the U.S. loggers (for example) use different tools which we have traditionally used here, for the same purposes.
Do you have more pictures or video of the clamps, particularly in use?
How is it made? Does making it require large powered manufacturing equipment or can it be made in a shop?
Here in the USA we have what is called Timber Mats, which are mats that are made of hardwood 25 cm by 25 cm and 5 meters long, bolted together to form a pad that is just over a meter wide. Using these mats, we lay them out over wet areas so that heavy equipment can traverse over wet areas, swamps, mud, streams, etc. They can be bought used by the power companies for only $90 US currency and make really good bridges and stuff for lighter equipment. I am pretty sure drilling and pouring concrete for roads would not be within what the typical landowner in the United States could afford though.
Your brackets, cables and buckles might be used in the use of round pole design though.
I once saw an article in an 1970's issue of Fine Woodworker, where a man made a shop in Japanese style by using #9 tie-wire to accomplish something similar without a lot of welding, and one-off production for a particular angle of a rafter, stringer or stud. The man just twisted the wire tightly together around poles, just as the Japanese do in making staging for instance over there. It is not exactly the build-it-for-life type building an engineer would like, but a lot of times, a building for a few years is enough to get someone by until something better can happen along.
Driving I90 north of Madison WI, I saw literally miles of those timber mats laid out under new transmission lines (future lines - at the moment there were only towers in place). Didn't realize they were bolted together. And they were used crosswise, not lengthwise, to make a road about 12' or so wide. Also parking areas. Putting in power lines like that takes a LOT of work!

My research in Russia.
1. I sent letters in 2017 to the leaders of about 50 regions of Russia. I got answers from 27 regions: we do not know and do not need. In my opinion, Russia is controlled by those who only knows how justly to divide the work of others, rights of others, the freedom of others, the lives of others. Therefore, they can only emulate belligerent effective managers from the USA. They can't emulate Steven Paul Jobs, Henry Ford, … Виталий Лазаревич Гинзбург, Николай Михайлович Амосов … Yes? No?
- In the forest near Moscow(!) they left the logs to rot. Therefore, I came up with a buckle to build from rotten wood.
- Because of them I wrote in 2014 http://www.xn--9-gtbdygk.xn--p1ai/house-for-refugees.html . (Loved grandma of my loved grandchildren was born in Makiivka (Ukraine?)).
- They threw away on trash of shpuntubel his grandfather. Do you know this tool? I'll clean it and varnish it. It will decorate my desktop.
- The mirror they threw in the trash helps me to pass the narrow gate of the garage when parking.
2. I sent letters to universities in Russia: you can watch the message of September 27, 2018 in https://forum.derev-grad.ru/kombinirovannie-doma-f124/ispolzovanie-nizkosortnoy-drevesini-v-stroitelstve-t76606.html .
2.1. «...this communication may form the basis of the article if the authors proposals relate to temporary structures. With respect» Lyudmila Aleksandrovna Suleymanova, Professor, Belgorod. email@example.com 2.2. "Dear Evgeniy Alexandrovich! We confirm receipt of your materials for publication. Your topic is interesting, both in terms of construction technology and the use of low-grade materials ...with respect", Nazim Yaroslav Viktorovich, Vice-rector of the Donbass national Academy of construction and architecture. People's Republic Of Donetsk, Makeyevka. (Ukraine?) firstname.lastname@example.org 2.3. "...the designs you propose ...cannot be used." Vladimir I. Linkov, Professor, Moscow Construction University, email@example.com And so on.
Result: my message describes a new one for both the US and Russia.

The pictures show the tools for making buckles. These tools I made a few dozen buckles. I'll make a couple hundred. It'll be enough for my family. For the manufacture of very large quantity need to do more expensive and complex equipment, in particular, as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EpavW2XLIY only for seamless pipe diameter of 25 millimeters. The main requirement for manufacturing is high accuracy. It ensures the strength of the joint. Sometimes I think the buckle is uncomfortable. Perhaps it should be improved.
Some of the websites you listed replied with exact reasons, such as they have a policy of responding only to contact from certain states or countries. Looking at the whole list, I would guess that they do not find your solicitation interesting for simple and practical reasons. This is the way of life and business - people have developed certain ways of conducting business (and life) and don't respond quickly or easily to different ideas from outsiders.
It appears you have an idea (a product?) which you think might be worth something to others. Congratulations. You are now an entrepreneur! Unfortunately perhaps, promoting and selling something new does not always succeed easily. In fact, I would have to say that it _never_ succeeds easily. In the U.S. we have many stories of people who have succeeded at something only after trying many hundreds of times, looking for the right approach, the right product, the right idea. I think this is probably true everywhere.
You have contacted certain people, organizations, which seemed might be interested. I cannot suggest a better way - you are doing what must be done. Perhaps if you find people willing to discuss ideas with you, try to encourage conversations see what things you can learn. New approaches might occur to you from this talk, maybe new names, new applications. I have done what you're doing only very briefly and I found it quite difficult. I believe that people can usually "succeed" provided they simply do _not_ stop pushing, trying. However, I also believe that the ideas and plans that do succeed very often do not look much like the originals - one needs to keep eyes open and change to discover what works. What you are doing here is known as "cold calling" - trying to sell or promote something by contacting people without ever having any prior connection with them at all. It's a truly difficult task but it can be learned. Once learned, the skill is valuable - more valuable for business than almost anything else one might learn.
I can only suggest you consider beginning your conversations by asking questions rather than just telling your story. Try to get to know the people while expressing your own plans. Networking. It helps, I think, to understand yourself and how your feelings and strengths might relate to your plans. For example, if you hate talking to people but you have good technical skills, you may need to find a partner with people skills. Or if you know, for example, logging very very well it will be easier for you to "connect" with other people who know logging because they will be able to tell that your are "for real". There is a very widely known book in this country titled "How to Win Friends and Influence People", written 70 years ago. It tells it like it is and gives many good ideas for how to promote and sell. I think you can find it easily and it might be helpful; it describes a way to approach people with the best chance of success and proper behavior. The author, Dale Carnegie, was very successful.
The only other thing I can say is "market research". Learn what's out there and how you can fit in and enhance things.
1.Russia can only emulate today. Это беда.
2. Wire or steel rope. Soft wire with a diameter of 5 millimeters begins to collapse at a load of about 500 kilograms. Steel rope of the same diameter begins to collapse at a load of about 1500 kilograms.
3. State standards of the USA and the USSR define the rule of reliable connection of a steel rope as on the picture. I wanted to meet those standards.
4. I think about the manufacture of the body of the buckle from aluminum.
Thank you for attention.
(I ask you to show the grossest errors in my texts.)
Timber Mats are not suitable for Soviet cars and roads with pictures. Do the United States have such cars and roads?
Scientists & engineers In the United States “...have a policy of responding only to contact from certain states or countries» (Rufus).
What do these scientists & engineers think about drilling roads in the swamp https://ardexpert.ru/article/13723 ?
December 22, 2018. The thickness of the snow is about 30 centimeters. I'm doing winter trials.
- connection of logs will be the most durable of available for any loads, if the buckle will be secure,
- connection of logs will be the cheapest if the tensioner will be cheap,
- connection of logs will be the fastest if the sledgehammer and rope removable tensioner will be convenient.
Wild places are in the Russia (Russian Far East) and in the USA (Alaska). I'm watching "Building Alaska" on TV.
We will continue the study of the new carpenter connection, if it would be helpful to others. We will share our experience for free. We are interested in cooperation.
