Welcome to Just Answer! My name isXXXXX very much enjoy what I do and I hope that you will benefit from this information.
You can ask for contempt but the judge will not send him to jail over this right away. The judge will likely tell him that he has 10 day or so after the hearing to get his stuff out and that if he does not do so after that then he will have forfeited his right to ever get it back.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. The judge has the power to give him a chance to get his tools out in 10 days or so and if he does not comply, then the judge cold put him in jail. But this is not likely to ever happen in this case because the judge can just say to him that if he does not get his tools out, he forfeits his rights to them period, end of story kind of thing.
