A line $\ell$ is a transversal to a family $F$ of convex polytopes in $\R^3$ if it intersects every member of $F$. If, in addition, $\ell$ is an isolated point of the space of line transversals to $F$, we say $F$ is a pinning of $\ell$. We show that any minimal pinning of a line by polytopes in $\R^3$ such that no face of a polytope is coplanar with the line has size at most eight. If in addition the polytopes are disjoint, then it has size at most six. We completely characterize configurations of disjoint polytopes that form minimal pinnings of a line.
